The inaugural Irish Kickboxing Awards are set for Belfast’s
Holiday Inn hotel on March 5.
The glitzy black-tie event will reward the fighters, coaches, gyms
and support staff who have helped the sport in Ireland grow at such
an incredible rate over the past couple of years.
Amongst the awards to be handed down on the night will be male and
female fighters of the year (both amateur and professional), best
gym, best event, best knockout and best novice fighter. There will
also be special lifetime achievement gong.
“This awards ceremony will pay tribute to the people across
the island who have made Kickboxing such a powerhouse sport,”
said Billy Murray, the man behind the event. “This will also
mark the first time that all disparate groups and associations involved
in the sport will be honoured at a single ceremony. It’s exciting
and it’s historic.”
Votes will be collated over the next few weeks from coaches, fighters
and gyms across Ireland. From these votes, the top three in each
category will be short-listed and the public can then vote for their
favourites on the new Irish Kickboxing Award website. (uploaded
