Here’s how it all went down at one of the biggest fight nights Dubai has ever seen
On Friday evening boxing royalty, Dubai elite and some of the biggest content creators in the world gathered at FIVE Palm Jumeriah for Knockout Night, one of the biggest mixed martial arts and fight nights Dubai has ever seen.
The inaugural event was hosted by two-division world champion, Olympic athlete and philanthropist Badou Jack, in celebration of the launch of his promotions company Badou Jack Promotions. In partnership with ITP Live the likes of Amir Khan and Prince Naseem, along YouTube sensations KSI, Miniminter and Harry “Wroetoshaw” Lewis were all in attendance and very excited to support their favourite fighters.
The main card event featured undefeated Cruiserweight boxer Viddal Riley, duking it out against Austin Nnamdi.
Overall it was a night to remember with Amer Abdullah, CEO of Badou Jack Promotions, promising another event before the end of 2019 (watch this space for more information on the next event!)
Congratulations to Badou Jack Promotions on a very successful event. We can’t wait to attend the next Knockout Night.
