SKY ARENA’S HEAVYWEIGHT SUPER 8 LAST MAN STANDING IN NEW ZEALAND
Sky Arena’s UK representative Mark Dunlop has engaged the services of British & Irish Heavyweights Martin Rogan & Michael Sprott for the world’s biggest ever Super 8 Heavyweight Boxing Tournament, to be held on 4 June 2014 in Auckland, New Zealand.
Super 8 will be a supercharged boxing event consisting of 8 world class fighters competing for a prize pool of £250,000 on one evening. Super 8 will become a regular feature in New Zealand and the world’s professional boxing landscape.
The Super 8 format will be similar to the UK “Prizefigher” however the big difference this time is the prize money on offer with over £100,000 to the winner and £50,000 to the runner up. In total there is over £250,000 up for grabs on the night to include a guaranteed £7,500 to all contestants for their first fights and also includes KO win bonuses.
Both Rogan and Sprott have a big advantage, both have fought in the UK version and both have won so both know what it takes to win the big prize.
Martin Rogan, the former Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion and Michael Sprott the former English, British & EU Heavyweight Champion will join Kiwi hope and former world heavyweight challenger big punching Kali Meehan as the first three names into the draw.
“I’ve done it before and I’m going to do it again, this time in a more spectacular fashion! I will be knocking out anyone who they put in front of me, I’ve a lot of family down in New Zealand, they have promised me when I win the Super 8 they will all be flying the flag of Ireland on their front door and celebrate me as their new president.
“After England beat the All Blacks I will be Knocking out whatever the Kiwis and Aussies have left to offer and it’s going to be a sorry week down under but triumphant for the English”
