The #LordsOfTheRing show opened its doors on Saturday night at the Ulster Hall and featured seven World title fights. The event celebrated 25 years since ProKick Head Coach Billy Murray won his own first Pro world title in the same venue. A show of this magnitude has never been attempted before in Europe and every seat in the house was full as the show kicked off.

The main event was Hamilton`s bout against Paolo Renna for a vacant WKN Professional World title. Hamilton had stated at an earlier press release that he would retire if the fight resulted in his defeat but his fans had no need to worry as the ProKick fighter gave it everything he had, and that was enough for him to take his second world title at a second weight. The fight didn't make the 12 rounds as Hamilton’s continual attack on Renna was too much and it was stopped in the fifth round after a veracious attack on the Belgian's body with both hands and feet.

SEVEN world titles up were up for grabs on this historical night when ProKick's homegrown fighters took to the ring. The team took home five of the World titles; one was declared a draw and the other a loss. Billy Murray couldn’t have been prouder as family, friends and fight fans congratulated him on the superb result.
Surprise: Joe Lindsay paid tribute to friend Murray as he stepped into the ring and called for more media attention on the sport as well as proper recognition for Billy Murray’s dedication and work within the sport and the local community.
