By FCF Staff
Lion Fight has announced that the kickboxing promotion is returning to Ledyard, Connecticut for an August 1st card, thanks to a new multi-fight deal it’s reached with Foxwoods Resort Casino.
According to a press release from the organization, Lion Fight will be hosting events at Foxwoods throughout 2014 and 2015. The organization held Lion Fight 15 at the casino earlier this year.
“The success of Lion Fight 15 was thrilling for everyone involved, and even more exciting is to announce that we have an east coast home for more Lion Fight events,” Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent was quoted saying in a press release. “Thanks to this deal with Foxwoods Resort Casino, we will present even more events this year and in 2015, likely a fight every three or four weeks. This allows us to keep our fighters active, sign more top athletes to multi-fight contracts and regularly showcase the sport of Muay Thai to east coast fans. I give my appreciation to Mark Cuban and Andrew Simon at AXS TV and Felix Rappaport for believing in Lion Fight and the potential of this incredible sport.”
Lion Fight 16 will take place July 4th at the Pearl at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The card will be broadcast on AXS TV.
