The glitzy dinner 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 student of the year, best ProKick satellite gym, up-n-coming fighter, instructor of the year along with a host of other special achievement gongs to be won.

“This awards ceremony will pay tribute to the people across the island that have made Kickboxing such a powerhouse sport,” said Billy Murray, the man behind the event. “This will also mark 18 years of ProKick and close to 30 years of kickboxing in Northern Ireland which we will honour at a single ceremony. It’s exciting and it’s going to be another momentous occasion.”

Following the handing down of gongs celebrating the best in kickboxing talent nationwide, the three men – all yet to be named – will take to the ring in a series of exciting bouts. “Every year after the awards and dinner we show some of our brightest talent in action,” said ProKick founder Billy Murray.
