Fight Sport Champions card

Just got an update via Dan Green about the upcoming September 11th card for the Fight Sports Champion Trophy event.

The 8-man tournament for £10,000 will also feature some championship titles at stake. The formerly titled MSA team will bring this event to NIA in Birmingham, UK.
The fighters participating in the 8-man tournament are:

Andy Thrasher (Manchester) – 2 x World Champion
Tim Thomas (Bedford) – 1 x World Champion, Current British ranked number one
Kevin Harper (Wigan) – 2 x World Champion, 5 x British Champion
James France (Leeds) – European Champion
Wayne McCoy (Nottingham) – K65 Grand prix Champion
Kieran Keddle (London) – 2 x World Champion
Thomas McCormick (Sheffield) – Commonwealth Champion
Nordin Kassrioui (Amsterdam) – Dutch Champion
Dave Copestake (Birmingham) – English Champion
Kerith Bhella (Wolverhampton) – British Champion

(includes two reserves)

The single bout super fights include the following:

WORLD TITLE FIGHT
Damien Trainor (Birmingham) vs Gianpietro Marceddu (Italy)
Current IKF World and WMC European Champion Damien Trainor is set to fight on WAKO-pro world champion Gianpietro Marceddu from Italy.

WORLD TITLE FIGHT
Dean James (Wolverhampton) vs Penphet Sor Kittishai (Thailand)
Current WMC European Champion and British ranked number one Dean James will have the toughest test of his career against the experienced Penphet Sor Kittishai of Thailand who has over 80 fights to his name. Dean James is rated as pound for pound one of the most technical fighters in the country!

Plus:
Sunny “The Hitman” Hira (Flash Gym, Birmingham) vs Raj “The Golden Boy” Sallan (Team Fearless, Birmingham)
Sunny is a 3x champion who will be fighting his former training partner Raj Sallan.

Other fighters are expected to be announced.

VIP seats include a two course Thai meal served ringside, complimentary champagne and special VIP entrance.

Could be interesting to see by luck of the draw if we could see a Kieran Keddle and Imrhan Khan rematch.  Khan was last seen internationally competing in the 8-man Toyota Cup event held in Thailand. That’s quite a christening for Fight Sport Industries’ first event.  When the draw’s announced it could be  intriguing  to see who even makes it to the semi-finals.
