FightBook MMA announced on Aug. 23, 2021, that SlapFIGHT Championship will have its first-ever American Slap Fighting PPV on FITE live on Friday, August 27th. The card has five of the top ten pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.
SlapFIGHT Championship: TITANS CLASH main event will see #4 World Ranked SlapFIGHT Heavyweight Champion, Darius the Destroyer (14-0) defending his title against #2 Ranked Light Heavyweight Champion Wolverine (9-2) in a slap battle to crown the most Dominant Champion in the USA. This matchup has been requested by fans since the two fighters first met in 2018 during the most controversial fight in SlapFIGHT history.
“We are all very excited about the growth of American slap fighting,” said veteran combat sports promoter JT Tilley, Founder of SlapFIGHT. “And with our partnership in Eastern Europe, and new SlapFIGHT leagues forming in the UK, South Africa, and Nigeria, SlapFIGHT Championship has become the most influential brand in slap competition history. Often imitated, but never duplicated. SlapFIGHT: there is only one.”
The Co-Main is a Super Heavyweight title fight between Hardcore Hillbilly and Solid Slug. Three Heavyweight Feature Fights will see The Crow vs. Frank the Tank, Young James vs. Coach Killa and The Italian Massacre vs Baby Ray. The over-the-top Undercard has a Lightweight Feature Fight between The Guardian and BezerkD. The Superfan Showdown will feature Big Gulp vs. Bayou Bastard. Altogether, card’s fighters represent New York, Alabama, West Virginia, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and Louisiana.
“When FITE presented its first Slap Fighting PPV from Europe in April, it was so successful it caught the eye of Snoop Dogg, who decided to showcase the sport at Triller Fight Club’s blockbuster Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren event,” said Kim Hurwitz, CMO of FITE. “There’s something about this wild sport and it’s much larger than life personalities that is definitely grabbing Americans.”
