The press launch of KBM VI


All eyes will be firmly focused on Belfast on Saturday 7th June when Eurosport roll into town to broadcast live coverage of Kickboxing Mania VI. As announced this week Kickboxing Mania VI will take place in Belfast's Ulster Hall on Saturday 7th June and is set to top all of the Mania events so far as the event will feature the World's best exponents of Muay Thai, Full-Contact and Freestyle Kickboxing.

Competitors from over ten nations will compete for Six major titles, with a full supporting bill featuring some of the best of Irish talent coming through the ranks.

For the second year in succession, the Northern Ireland Events Company and Belfast City Council are the main supporters of Kickboxing Mania. The Events Company made history for the sport of kickboxing in N.Ireland last year when they became the first public body ever to fund the sport. Without the support of the NIEC and the Belfast City Council Kickboxing Mania V would not have been the major success it was and people in over seventeen different countries would not have had the opportunity to see World Class Kickboxing from Northern Ireland on their TV screens.
