Asia Fighting Championship
We want to share our passion for the Art of Thai Boxing across Asia. We believe that Asia Fighting Championship will become a phenomenal success as through its creation, we are addressing a large gap in the market: standardizing and uniting the martial art form of MuayThai.
To establish AFC as the world leading arena for MuayThai artistes to showcase their skills and realise their dreams. In essence, to allow this ancient art form to become mainstream, and to groom and crown the Champion of Champions.
We hope to not only inspire athletes, sponsors and investors, but to also inspire all individuals who share our dream and through our journey together, encourage them to be of their own lives.
Through high-level grooming and marketing of our AFC-signed fighters, high production values for our AFC Fights and support from the MuayThai associations around the world, we believe that within 3 years, Asia Fighting Championship will be a globally recognized brand in the sports entertainment world.
