Fight Now! TV, America's 24/7 combat sports cable channel, is now THE exclusive home of SUPERKOMBAT Fighting Championship in the United States. SUPERKOMBAT is currently a European leader in fight TV production, featuring world-class kickboxing.
Fight Now! TV's exclusive deal with SUPERKOMBAT will bring five live events to the U.S. this year from September through December.
The newly founded international media partnership kicks-off this Thursday and Friday, September 26 and 27, with two days of recent SUPERKOMBAT events airing on Fight Now! TV's Every Night a Different Fight timeslot.
The exciting action culminates in the promotion's live U.S. debut this Saturday afternoon (Sept. 28) with SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix, LIVE starting at 3 p.m. ET from Botosani, Romania.
"This is a great way to introduce combat sports fans to the talent and quality of events SUPERKOMBAT has to offer," said Brad Sanguin Programming & Production manager for Fight Now! TV.
"Fight Now! TV believes in ambitious projects, so we decided to make this deal a media partnership," SUPERKOMBAT President Eduard Irimia added. "We're hopeful that this may be the beginning of a long term relationship. We are proud to air the first event broadcasted live in the USA - SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix. I am confident that this project will have only positive effects for both brands."
