Major International Kickboxing Event Newcastle – Feb 4th 2017

This be the biggest ever Kickboxing Event Newcastle….DUEL GRAND PRIX!

The biggest Kickboxing event possibly ever to be held in Newcastle is scheduled for Saturday February 4th 2017.  DUEL GRAND PRIX is set to become the #1 event of its type in the North East of England bringing top talent from around Europe to compete in 2500 seated venue “the Dome” (formerly the Lightfoot Centre) in the East of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Whilst Duel at the NE6 from popular local promoter David Wield has been a quality small event in Newcastle for a number of years the Grand Prix marks a major step up in the level of production and competition. The Duel Grand Prix show has been set up to match shows such as the MAIN EVENT. YAKKAO, RESPECT & SUPER KOMBAT giving the North East of England a show the Kick Boxing Community can not only be proud of but giving the UK’s top Kick Boxers a show in the North they can not only get the exposure they deserve but also one they can trust to look after them at every step of the way.

“We’ve wanted to take this step for a while now but with Alex from Revgear Sports and Craig from Northern Kings coming on board we definitely have a management team to make this a truly prestigious and World Class event, We’ve already secured some of Europe’s Top Kick Boxers for this show but the card is looking out of this world and will be of major interest to Europe’s Kickboxing community!” David Weild Promoter 

“This is the first show I’ve ever even interested in getting directly involved with; there are great promoters in the North East for MMA such as Made4theCage and Boxing such as Steve Wraith and Fighting Chance but North East Kickboxing needs a world class event….This is hugely exciting.

Tickets go on sale in around a week for what will almost certainly be the Regions top Kickboxing event of 2017.  Keep an eye on and local press for more details.

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
