HILTON PUT THE H ON THE END OF PUNCH
Hotel Belfast has thrown its weight behind kickboxing, forging a
partnership with the sport’s supremo in Northern Ireland,
The hotel is backing Murray’s KICKmas BOX show at the Ulster
Hall on December 19 and will become host to a number of Murray’s
promotions in 2006.
The new relationship will see a special guest arrive at Hilton Hotel
in December, boxing legend Marvelous Marvin Hagler, who will be
attending Gary Hamilton’s world title showdown with Mohammad
Samir at the Ulster Hall.
Billy Murray said: “Kickboxing is becoming a 5-star sport
with a 5-star fanbase, so it is natural we check-in at a 5-star
hotel. The Hilton staff were extremely professional in dealing with
me and it’s great to have Belfast’s top hotel take an
interest in our sport.
“The Hilton is no stranger to kickboxing, having hosted several
shows in the past. There is big competition in the hospitality world
in our confident and vibrant city and the Hilton was so impressive
in its dealings with kickboxing and my ProKick Gym we simply could
not consider working with anyone else.”
Erika Jaggers, Hilton Northern Ireland Sales Manager said: “We
were impressed by the positive image Billy Murray Promotions brings
to Belfast and Northern Ireland. He has brought kickboxing to the
fore and we are looking forward to a good relationship with him
in the future.
Gary Hamilton, the current world featherweight champion who is challenging
Mohammad Samir for the WKN light-welter belt, will also stay at
the Hilton along side the Frenchman and Marvin Hagler in December.
