Great success during the Gladiators Fight Night 29

Inside the Monte Cristo arena in Ħal Farruġ, as it was anticipated, Gladiators Fight Night 29, called The Battle of Warriors, was a great success with a high-level show.

With a significant number of fights split over two days, the Maltese fighters competing in boxing, K1, kickboxing, and Muay Thai put on an amazing show when confronting 18 international opponents from different nations. 

With 19 competitive bouts and 14 exhibitions sanctioned and supervised by the Malta Boxing Association (MBA), boxing took centre stage on Friday, the first day of the competition. In fights organised following Olympic standards, fighters from different Maltese clubs competed against opponents from international clubs according to their weight categories and divisions.

The Malta Kickboxing Association (MKBA) alongside with World Kickboxing Network (WKN), and the Malta Boxing Association supervised 29 competitive fights and 1 exhibition during the second round of bouts on Saturday. The program included 2 professional boxing bouts, 2 K1 bouts, 2 Muay Thai fights, and various kickboxing bouts for various titles, including the Gladiators title belts and two WKN International title belts. 

With a superb performance, the fighters from the Maltese clubs won 18 fights against the international fighters. Jake Azzopardi, Emma Xuereb, Jaydee Cassar, and Brent Spiteri won the prestige Gladiator title belts. Jean Claude Mifsud won the Boxing title belt, while Jesred Piscopo defeated his international opponent in a K1-style fight.


The climate of the event was the victory of the two Maltese fighters Leanne Magro and Ryan Cachia both mentored and coached by Master Noel Mercieca from Team Noel Club both winning the title belts for WKN European am/pro.

The Gladiator promoters, Joesam Azzopardi, Mariana Azzopardi Spiteri, Noel Mercieca, and Mariella Sciberras, expressed their gratitude for the outstanding performance of the local fighters. They remarked that such accomplishments serve as motivation to organise future events of similar levels.
