BRAD PICKETT launches Rise of Champions organisation; unveils initial event details

A

UFC bantamweight fighter, Brad Pickett, has unveiled his plans for the debut event by his new fight organisation, RISE OF CHAMPIONS under the banner of One Punch Promotions.

The event, which will feature both amateur and professional bouts, will take place at City Pavilion, Romford, UK on October 17 2015. Pickett has joined forces with Team Titan head coach, Mickey Papas to organise the event, and is currently putting the finishing touches to their first ever fight card. The inaugural event will feature fighters from BKK Fighters, The MMA Clinic, Team Titan, plus other renowned UK gyms.

Pickett’s motivation for launching RISE OF CHAMPIONS is rooted in seeking out new talent and nurturing fighters as they progress in their career. He explains:

“When I was starting out in this sport, it wasn’t really a long term viable career option but things have changed considerably now – and it’s something that young fighters aspire to do as a job, not just a hobby. I want to help those hungry young fighters get experience and support them as they take the first steps towards that. It can be a rough path to follow, and I hope that my experience will help guide them along a bit.”

Pickett has today announced a number of bouts for the first event including a professional welterweight match up between David ‘One More’ Round and Bill Beaumont, plus a handful of amateur fights – with more announcements to follow in the coming weeks.
