On 5 April, the O2 in London, also known as the North Greenwich Arena, will host the first Bitcoin Fight Night in history. The goal is to bring the Bitcoin community and martial arts together. The event will include an 8-man K-1 kickboxing tournament. The winner will receive a prize in Bitcoin equivalent to 5,000 British pounds.
The Press Release of the Event
The spokesperson for the first Bitcoin Fight Night is Patrick Carroll. He describes the rules of the tournament as follows:
"We have put together an 8-man elimination K-1 Rules tournament where the winner will receive £5000 in Bitcoin. We have sourced the absolute best fighters from the UK and Europe and they are ready to put on a great show for the martial arts and Bitcoin fans."
The administration came up with the following idea during the recent Coinscrum event:
“We originally came up with the idea of a Bitcoin fight night while attending a Bitcoin meet-up group called Coinscrum in central London.”
Mr. Carroll is personally interested in both matters – cryptocurrencies and fighting promotion.
“Myself and Matt O'Connor are originally martial artists/ fight promoters and have a very keen interest in cryptocurrencies and believe they are the future of online payment.”
With the event on the horizon, the organizers have experienced certain difficulties during the preparations.
“Many hurdles have been thrown in front of us while putting this show together but because we are fighters at heart we do not give up and we keep pushing forward!”
Among the competitors are Kevin Ward, Liam McKendry and Jafar Mukri. Mr. Carroll has also revealed the name of a special guest.
“Speaking of fighters, Max Keiser is also on board and supporting us by competing in a celebrity bout against one of the well-known banksters. There will also be a special episode of the Keiser Report airing tomorrow promoting the event.”
Patrick Carroll hopes to attract as many spectators as possible and invites everyone to join the event.
“We are very much looking forward to and seeing everyone this Saturday 5 April and expect it to be the biggest Bitcoin gathering to date at London’s O2.”
