A loud, capacity crowd  watched numerous bouts across a range of disciplines including professional boxing, Muay Thai and Mixed Martial Arts when the Cavanbah Centre hosted Byron Bay’s Night of Fights earlier this month.

It was a good night for Kingscliff local Josh Frederiksen, who beat the number-five-ranked light heavyweight fighter in New Zealand, who was especially flown in for the match-up.
Byron Bay’s ‘local legend’ Issac Tisdell also won his professional boxing debut against Trevor Loomes from Perth.

The night also included the finale of one of Mixed Martial Art’s fasting growing programs worldwide Wimp 2 Warrior.

‘The night was a massive success. All the Wimp to Warrior contestants were amazing, as well,’ Nick Midgley from Kingscliff Boxing Stables said.

The event was organised by the Kingscliff gym in conjunction with local gym, Extreme Mixed Martial Arts.
