Accomplished mixed martial arts fighter Isaac Tisdale will make his professional debut in the boxing ring when the Byron Bay Cavanbah Centre hosts its first Night of Fights.
The event has been organised by Kingscliff Boxing Stables to highlight their current crop of fighters according to head trainer Nick Midgley.
‘We needed a big venue to pay for quality contestants for our local fighters, including Isaac and Josh Fredericksen,’ he said.
The Kingscliff gym has joined with Extreme Mixed Martial Arts to put together Muay Thai bouts, five professional boxing bouts including Isaac’s debut, and the finale of one of Mixed Martial Art’s (MMA) fasting-growing programs worldwide Wimp 2 Warrior.
‘It will no doubt be a very rewarding night for all competitors involved as they put their honed skills to the test with laserlike focus, but for Isaac Tisdale he will not only be celebrating his professional boxing debut, he will see a dozen young men and women whom he coached through six months of intense mixed martial arts training put their newfound skills to the test as Byron Bay’s first season of Wimp 2 Warrior concludes,’ Nick said.
Wimp 2 Warrior is a human transformation program that puts everyday regular people with no martial arts experience through a six- month training program where they learn all the basics of MMA, condition their bodies and minds and find the warrior inside as they compete in their first amateur MMA bout.
Cavanbah Centre, Saturday July 15. Tickets: start from $50.
