From Legacy Fighting Championship:
Legacy FC and Ready Every Second will debut new kickboxing promotion, LK Fights, in January 2015.
HOUSTON — (December 2, 2014) — After striking a partnership with Ready Every Second (RES) Nation in 2013, Legacy Fighting Championship (Legacy FC), in conjunction with AXS TV, will debut Legacy Kickboxing (LK Fights) on January 16. 2015.
LK Fights currently has a three-fight schedule in place with AXS TV in 2015. The first card (LK1) will be broadcasted live and features seasoned kickboxing veterans such as Pat Barry, Demoreo Dennis, Cosmo Alexandre, Regian Eersel, Marco Pique, Michael Corley, Lindsay Haycraft, Valentina Schevchenko, Miguel Torres and Angel Huerta.
Mick Maynard, President of Legacy FC and LK Fights, shared his thoughts on the new venture with RES Nation:
“I have worked with Mike White, Jeff Nowling and the RES team for quite a while now. Together, with the vision and culture they bring to the table, we will build LK Fights to be one of the top kickboxing organizations in the world in a short period of time. The inaugural main card includes seven fights; at least five of those fights are ‘main event’ worthy if it were on any other event.”
Maynard plans to incorporate kickboxing into Legacy FC’s amateur shows so they can build a proper foundation.
“This is the most exciting style of stand-up fighting in the world and we plan to do this right,” stated Maynard.
Michael White, Managing Partner of RES Nation, had this to say about the new promotion:
“When you take two of the most dynamic and reputable companies in Houston and combine them together for a joint venture, there are going to be fireworks! The synergy between RES Nation and Legacy in creating LK Fights is going to set a new standard. We are undertaking this task for one purpose: to be the best in the industry and create a kickboxing product that is second to none.”
LK Fights will follow the unified rules of kickboxing and is working diligently alongside fellow promotion, Glory Kickboxing, to set consistent rules and promote the sport.
LK1 will be held on January 16, 2015 in Houston, Texas at the Bayou Music Center. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., preliminaries will be held at 7:00 p.m. and the main card will go on at 9:00 p.m. CST.
