I have had the pleasure of commentating a lot of kickboxing events in Europe and can tell you the teams there are extremely tough. This is one of the top sports in Europe and their fighters spend a lot of time training. It’s great that Rob Zbilski and his remarkable organization are dedicating resources to develop a strong USA team. We are thrilled to be a part of it and look forward to broadcasting all their fights.”
“We are very excited about this first time ever WAKO live Kickboxing event in Nashville TN – USA vs. Canada. I am thrilled to announce that this exciting battle will also be a livestreamed pay per view event followed by a delayed televised broadcast. I can’t think of any team we would rather face-off against than the WAKO Canada Team. Be sure you save the date and come out to support our national kickboxing Team.” says Rob Zbilski, President, WAKO USA Kickboxing.
