The boxing bouts will take place over 3 x 2 minute rounds, the MMA 3 x 3 minute rounds.

If you’re planning on attending the show, we’ll give you a couple of tips.

  1. MMA – Keep your eyes on Faisal Kayani. His hand speed is legendary. Combine that with a rapidly improving ground game and his bout with Adam Chetnik could be worth the admission price alone.
  2. Boxing – If you’re a striking purist, then up and coming star Bobby Stockwell should complete your night in style. He’s currently 5-0 in his fledgling career and faces his stiffest test to date, taking on a far more experienced fighter in James Flynn.

We caught up with head honcho Sammy Leaver as he put the finishing touches to his preparations, he told us; “This show will be electric. Moulds have been broken, we’re excited, expect fireworks!”.

Doors open at 6:15pm with the first bout scheduled for 7pm. Dunstable is in for a treat.
