Contender Promotions: Two top bouts added to K-1 Rising Stars card in June



Contender Promotions champion Lucy Lister fighting out MFA Sheffield will put her gold on the line against a legitimate opponent on June 11th.

Lister is not only the current Contender Promotions champion, she is also a phenomenally rounded fighter and is talented in various stand up martial arts, making her stand up style extraordinary to watch.

Stepping up and taking the challenge is a Northeast favourite, multiple title holder in various disciplines and hungry for success Kennedy Freeman. Freeman is daughter of Legendary UFC veteran Ian “The Machine” Freeman and Kennedy certainly is a chip off the old block.

This bout with be one of the most talked about fights on the night and both ladies have promised the fans will not be disappointed when they step through the ropes.

Elsewhere on the card there is a clash of two of the Northeast’s best upcoming shining talents. Atkinson of Wolf Thai is making quite a name for himself on the K-1 and Muay Thai scene and is eager to claim a piece of Gold under the K-1 rules.

Standing between him and victory is Ransom training out of Contender Fight Academy under instruction of Garry Bell. Ransom has a slick skill set and shows real potential with a great local following.

Both of these young talents have great ring experience and are no stranger to placing everything on the line between the ropes.

This is set to be a battle of Skill vs Skill and will have all the makings of one of the top, top fights on this bill.

About Us


MMA in Newcastle Upon Tyne and the North East generally has grown massively over the last few years and coupled with its boxing heritage it’s truly astounding that the regions capitol city has been without a dedicated Martial Arts and Boxing store for so long. Newcastle was without an MMA store until 2011 when FIGHT STORE Newcastle opened. Since Then we have been a part of the community with the staff and owners all having been involved for many years in the sports we work for.
