SOUTH AFRICA - The International Convention Centre Durban has come out fighting for a new kind of business stream, with the MMA King of the Cage Fight hosted at the venue’s Arena on 25 November.

ICC Durban Acting CEO Jeremy Hurter, said: “We are incredibly excited to be hosting an international title fight of this stature in the ICC Arena. The event is a first for Durban and the ICC and will showcase just how well the ICC Arena can accommodate sporting events. We will be working with the organisers to ensure that patrons will enjoy an evening of glamour and excitement similar to that of Madison Square Garden in New York City or Las Vegas.”
