Muay Thai Fight Night in Jamaica, June 20. 2008
This seems to be a pretty bangin' Muay Thai Fight Card.
Muay Thai Fight Night in Jamaica - June 20, 2008
Well known Kickboxing Promoter Dennis Warner of California has been one of the few major promoters in North America staying faithful to promoting kickboxing and not moving over to the fast growing sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Warner has not only been consistent in his promotions in California and Nevada but has also brought some of the top kickboxing talent to his events from around the world as well as building up top local stars.
This coming June Warner has plans for yet another exciting event but in doing so, he will take his promotional skills on the road to Jamaica where he will bring together “4″ different sanctioning bodies for an unprecedented event that will include “10″ World Title Fights. 2008 RISARC and the Caribbean Classic Golf Invitational (CCGI) Foundation has teamed up with Warner to host a Pro Muay Thai event at their 4th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Charity Event to be held June 18th - 22nd in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Proceeds will be used to purchase computers and establish technology learning centers in primary schools in Jamaica.
The four-day event will feature a full schedule of star-studded events ranging from the Thursday evening Weigh-in Conference and Culture Night Kick-Off Extravaganza to the Golf Tournament and Muay Thai Fight and Expo on Friday, concluding with the 2nd Day Golf Tournament and the CCGI Gala Awards Dinner on Saturday night. Proceeds from the annual event will help make children’s dreams come true, by providing computers to establish much-needed technology learning centers for primary schools in Jamaica.
Supporting this fantastic cause is a celebrity guest roster sprinkled with Olympic champions, famous recording artists, top Hollywood comedians, actors, writers, and more.
The guest roster includes individuals such as Michael Strahan (NY Giants, 2008 Super Bowl Champion), Cedric The Entertainer (Dr. Dolittle 2, Barbershop, Johnson Family Vacation, Be Cool) Anthony Anderson (Transformers, The Departed) Ed Moses (Olympic Swimmer-Gold Medalist) Bill Bellamy (Any Given Sunday, Host of Last Comic Standing) and many more. Friday nights schedule of events will feature the highly anticipated Muay Thai fight with an international line-up.
