FOR KICKS!: Turn on, tune in get knocked out! Ireland's FIRST kickboxing column We lead - others Fall-ow.
Fight fans can see some explosive action including brilliant young Frenchman Samir, the WKN light-welterweight champion undefeated in 99 fights, against keen rival Sharbowski.
Next year, one of Ireland's rising stars Sean 'Superkick' Collier will make his punt for the pot of gold.
The Wexford man will take part in one of the qualifiers hoping to book his place in Paris.
PETER Foley, Collier's manager, is jetting off to Venice this week to meet with Italian kickboxing groups in order to ink a deal on an Ireland V Italy showdown in Galway this autumn.
Tommy Quinn, one of Ireland's premier kickboxing officials, is taking time out from keeping the peace in the ring to help bring through another raft of kickboxers.
Quinn's club in Graig, Kilkenny will debut a number of fighters at the Next Generation show in Belfast's Park Avenue on September 25.
PROKICK got into the summer mood this week with the launch of a free Summer Scheme for juniors.
Dozens of gym members aged 6-13 took part in the two day event. It was a roaring success with the gym packed with 30 kids on each day.
"This is the first time we've tried a summer scheme," said coach Billy Murray.
"We thought it'd be a great idea to give the kids some fun so their parents could relax.
"We're now going to run it right through the summer. It's only open to ProKick members, but we're taking membership for new classes, so if parents we're interested in a great free scheme for the kids, we'd be delighted to have them along."
