“DUEL 7 promises to be a thrilling night of action in Walker” 

– Craig Johns, Evening Chronicle

DUEL 7 is the latest installment of K-1 kickboxing and Muay Thai from Newcastle’s DUEL Fight Sports, taking place on Saturday, November 26th at the NE6 Suite in Walker, Newcastle. It is promoter David Weild’s final show of 2016 before the ambitious expansion to DUEL Grand Prix in February, 2017 at the 2,500 capacity Walker Activity Dome.


82KG DUEL SuperFight Championship (Muay Thai)

DUEL 7 is headlined by adopted-Geordie Juan Cervantes (29) of Craig Joses Northern Kings Gym, Newcastle vs. the technical Portuguese Luis Sant’Anna Leite of KO Team, Lisbon. They meet in an 82KG Muay Thai bout for the DUEL SuperFight Championship (DUEL’s highest honour.) Cervantes is the UK’s #1-ranked 79KG Muay Thai fighter and will be making his final appearance before moving onto the world stage with major Dutch promotion Enfusion Live, fighting in Abu Dhabi on December 9th.


60KG DUEL National K-1 Championship

Newcastle fan favourite, Gary ‘Boom Boom’ Laws (26, Northern Kings Gym), makes his return to the ring vs. Jake Gomersall of AnyTime Muay Thai, Rushden. In his previous outing for the DUEL SuperFight & WKL European K-1 Championships, Laws was on the receiving-end of a spinning heel kick that became a viral sensation, racking-up millions of views and being featured by Fox Sports in the USA. A chance at redemption comes at DUEL 7 for the charismatic Laws with the vacant 60KG DUEL National K-1 Championship at stake and the opportunity to build upon his #4-ranking in the UK 60KG division.

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. The MMAnewcastle website was originally built purely because of the amount of inquires we received daily about where people could train. We offer our directory and events listing free to the North East Martial Arts and Boxing community and will continue to work to promote the sports we love in our region
