The Main Event 2014 - World Class Thai Boxing
The Main Event- Harrison vs Wootton -7th June 2014
Following the success of our sold out event earlier this month, we are pleased to announce the next big step forward for The Main Event brand.
On 7th June 2014 the USN Bolton Arena will play host to the first of our arena shows. Capable of holding up to 5000 spectators, the arena has hosted many high profile events over the past few years, most recently WBA World champion boxer Scott Quigg’s fight vs William Prado in the Summer.
The card for this show will surpass any that we have previously seen and features, as always, some of the very best fighters in our sport.
Today we announce the first of many headlining fights penned in for this show.
65kg A Class – Greg Wootton (KO gym, London) vs Liam Harrison (Bad Company, Leeds)
This bout pits two of the stand out names in U.K. Muay Thai against one another in a fight that has been on the cards for a long time.
KO’s superstar Wootton boasts a record of 28 wins from 30 fights and is known for his amazing technical ability and slick fighting style. He has beaten the who’s who of Muay Thai names in the U.K including Panicos Yusuf, Paul Karpowicz and Luke Turner and is the current WMC MAD World Title holder.
Other notable scalps for the Londoner include wins over Thai champion Prathet Sor Thanikul and World champion Andre Kotsur. In addition to his impressive collection of Muay Thai wins, he has also competed several times under kickboxing rules and recently picked up the Enfusion World strap.
Harrison is coming off the back of a brilliant win over Frenchman Dylan Salvador on The Main Event earlier this month and has a busy start to 2014 planned. With more than 90 fights on his record he has long been considered one of the very best fighters on the planet, competing at the highest level for many years. He holds wins over countless Thai champions and recorded a spectacular win over Andrei Kulebin on our first The Main Event show in 2012, stopping the Belarussian in 3 rounds.
The excitement surrounding this fight alone has already reached fever pitch in the short time since it was leaked and we have already taken many orders for VIP packages and tickets!
We have many top level fights agreed for this event which we will release over the next couple of months.
Tickets will go on sale in December!
