What Is It?
This August, boxing champions from across the globe will face off in an epic international fight that’ll test strength, stamina and skill to see who will be dubbed the ultimate warrior! The Battle of the Warriors is no ordinary contest – 18 men and women will box it out for the championship title in what promises to be one of the most exciting international sporting events to hit the country this year. The matches feature champions exclusively and last nine bouts each, providing an edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting spectacle.
And the entertainment goes beyond the boxing matches. Spectators will be treated to performances from South African musical favourites Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels, as well as Dozi and his band. In preparation for the world championships, The SA Medieval Combat Team will also be flaunting their prowess through demonstrations in-between bouts, and there will be specially choreographed performances from the current South African champion dance team. To top it off, South Africa’s pole dancing champions will perform gravity defying acrobatics to get your adrenaline pumping even harder.
With comedy legend Barry Hilton as MC for the event, you can be certain that the Battle of the Warriors will be one to remember!
