Lion Fight, AXS Agree to New Multi-Year Contract Extension

By Mike Sloan Oct 21, 2016
Lion Fight Promotions and AXS TV Fights announced on Friday that a multi-year contract extension has been reached between the two. The popular network will continue to be the exclusive U.S. broadcast partner for Lion Fight, which has quickly become the continent’s leading muay Thai promotion.

As of this writing, the Las Vegas-based Lion Fight (live odds) is scheduled to host at least eight events in 2017

“We are extremely excited to remain a partner with AXS TV Fights as we continue to bring the world’s best muay Thai fighters to our stage,” said Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent. “Lion Fight has blossomed this past year with a huge increase in overall appeal as we showcase elite stand-up fighters with unparalleled striking capabilities. Our roster includes champions like Antonina Shevchenko, Iman Barlow, Tum Sityodtong, Jo Nattawut, and Sergio Wielzen plus rising stars like Ky Hollenbeck, Gaston Bolanos, Travis Clay, Regian Eersel, and Brett Hlavacek.”

Andrew Simon, the CEO of AXS TV Fights, couldn’t agree more.

“Over the past four years, Lion Fight has become the preeminent brand in the world of muay Thai and furthered AXS TV Fights’ storied history of featuring the world’s best stand-up fighters,” Simon said. “We have seen tremendous growth in the popularity of muay Thai on AXS TV, which made this new deal an essential component of our 45-event broadcast schedule in 2017.”

Lion Fight will host another night of action Friday night when it returns home for Lion Fight 32 inside the newly-renovated Tropicana resort Hotel Casino, followed by Lion Fight 33 on Nov. 18 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn.
