Miami To Host Three-Part Karate Combat Series

Miami will be the host city for three upcoming Karate Combat events spread throughout the months of 2023.

Miami will be the host of a special three-part event put on by Karate Combat.

Returning to the world-famous waterfront five years after the inaugural live event, the striking league will hold Karate Combat 38: Judgment Day on April 1.

Karate Combat 39 takes place May 20 and Karate Combat 40 on June 24.

MediaPro Studios will serve as the host venue for the hottest property in combat sports when it returns to Miami with its unparalleled live event experience, blending live action with CGI virtual production built on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine.

Two world titles will be on the line in the dual bad-blood rematches which form the co-headline bouts of Karate Combat 38 on Saturday, April 1.

Middleweight champion ‘Turbo’ Ross Levine will lay his belt on the line against Spanish antagonist Igor ‘The Iberian Bull’ de Castaneda in a fight which will reignite one of the most intense rivalries in Karate Combat history.

In the co-headline bout, Irish bantamweight champion Eoghan Chelmiah and Peru’s Jesus Lopez will pick up where they left off in December, when their five-round KC 37 title war concluded with an officiating error which saw Lopez incorrectly announced as the winner when the scorecard totals actually favored Chelmiah.

“There’s nothing fight fans love more than real rivals who have genuine bad blood, and for our first event of 2023 we’ve got two of the deepest I’ve ever come across. The Lopez vs. Chelmia drama feels like a story from a book which unfolds in front of our eyes. Both of these co-headline bouts have ‘Fight of the Year’ potential – and it’s our first card of the year!” said Adam Kovacs, Karate Combat President.
