SKY ARENA’S HEAVYWEIGHT SUPER 8 LAST MAN STANDING IN NEW ZEALAND
Sky Arena’s UK representative Mark Dunlop has engaged the services of British & Irish Heavyweights Martin Rogan and Michael Sprott for the world’s biggest ever Super 8 Heavyweight Boxing Tournament, to be held on 4 June 2014 in Auckland, New Zealand.
Super 8 will be a supercharged boxing event consisting of 8 world class fighters competing for a prize pool of £250,000 on one evening. Super 8 will become a regular feature in New Zealand and the world’s professional boxing landscape.
The Super 8 format will be similar to the UK “Prizefigher” however the big difference this time is the prize money on offer with over £100,000 to the winner and £50,000 to the runner up. In total there is over £250,000 up for grabs on the night to include a guaranteed £7,500 to all contestants for their first fights and also includes KO win bonuses.
Both Rogan and Sprott have a big advantage, both have fought in the UK version and both have won so both know what it takes to win the big prize.
Martin Rogan, the former Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion and Michael Sprott the former English, British & EU Heavyweight Champion will join Kiwi hope and former world heavyweight challenger big punching Kali Meehan as the first three names into the draw.
