Lion Fight Promotions CEO Scott Kent announced today the hiring of Justin Roberts as the organization’s new ring announcer.
The former host and announcer for WWE will make his debut at Lion Fight 45 set for Saturday, July 28th at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
“Being able to bring Justin aboard is absolutely fantastic,” said Kent. “As Lion Fight expands its worldwide audience, Justin brings his own unique fan base to Lion Fight. Through Justin’s passionate following of combat sports fans, we are very excited about having the opportunity to show the skill level of our Muay Thai athletes to a huge new audience that haven’t yet seen what the Lion Fight brand is all about.
“On top of Justin’s massive social media presence, he is unquestionably an extremely talented ring announcer who will add something special to the presentation of Lion Fight to the fans watching in the arena and to those watching at home as well.”
