The sold out VIP evening show at The Takeover at Deans Sports and Leisure Centre at Lincoln College has some of the biggest names in the UK K1 scene on the card, so now is the time for us to talk about those fights to wet the appetites of those who were lucky enough to secure a ticket for the event.
Not only will guests have the opportunity to have a meet and greet with the legendary boxer Frank Bruno and see UK rapper Tinchy Stryder performing a set, they will also get to witness some of the UK’s very best K1 fighters in action and we have managed to secure an international professional K1 rules super fight to headline the show.
Making his debut for the most talked about gym in the UK, Karl Johnson will be representing the Combat Academy in Barnsley on this huge evening of world class kickboxing and we at Feud Promotions couldn’t be more honored when his coach Mick Crossland got in touch to offer Karl’s services.
Karl learnt his trade at Jesters Gym in Matlock, rapidly climbing through the ranks to become ICO World Champion, earning a reputation as the hardest puncher in the UK, with some vicious knock outs to his name.
A former sparring partner of Lincoln Fight Factory legend Petar Stoikov, Karl has fought on some of the countries biggest shows and is coming off a shock first round stoppage against Ireland’s Dawid Blaszke on the Road to Glory event last year.
He has ambitions to get right back to the very top of the tree and is looking to rebuild his career in Barnsley and is hoping to hit the ground running on Saturday at The Takeover.
Facing Karl is Simon Alvey of Uplift Gym in Wicklow. When we offered Karl out to the K1 coaches it was Simon that approached the Feud team to offer his services to be in the opposite corner.
Simon has a respectable record of 20 wins and 10 losses, fighting a who’s who of the Irish fight scene and is very confident he can cause a major upset on Saturday night.
This is a great fight to end the show and the team at Feud Promotions couldn’t be more excited about having these two professional’s on their first promotion.
As stated before to VIP show is now sold out but don’t worry, tickets are still available for our under card and can be purchased from the Lincoln Fight Factory or by clicking this link
