FINAL COUNTDOWN: Fighting Fit Dubai’s Fight Night set for April 26th

Fighting Fit Dubai

42 days, 26 contestants, 5 challenges, 2 teams and 1 unforgettable finale. Nomad Productions, the team behind the award-winning UAE-based reality TV show Fighting Fit Dubai, has confirmed that Fight Night- the grand finale of the third season – will take place on April 26th at Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens. The culmination of weeks of trials, training, tears and triumphs, Fight Night will see the finalists go head-to-head in a series of bouts to be crowned champions of the ring.

This season’s Fight Night will be the first to be aired on ESPN.com, following an exciting new deal inked between the Fighting Fit Dubai’s creators and producers – UAE-based Nomad Productions- and global sports media giant, ESPN for its third season.

The ticketed event, set to bring over 1,000 boxing enthusiasts and fans of the show to the open-air rooftop of Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens promises an electric atmosphere and heart-stopping action as the contenders step into the spotlight and square-off for the fight of a lifetime. Hosted by local radio personality Chris McHardy, the event will be the last and final chance for Fighting Fit contestants to make their mark, after a gruelling six-week stint in front of the cameras that saw them transform from everyday residents to amateur boxers.

“Fight Night is the climax of six weeks of rigorous training, challenges, disciplined pursuit, ups, downs and everything in between. The show brings together a diverse group of everyday Dubai residents – moms, dads, teachers, doctors – all of whom are determined to make a serious change to their lives. They will transform their diets, lifestyle and routines completely and become healthier, more confident and more determined to get into the ring on Fight Night.” said Phil Griffiths, Director of Fighting Fit Dubai and Co-Founder of Nomad Productions. “For fans of the show, this will be their chance to be part of the action and cheer for the stars they have been following all season. It will be a memorable night for the contestants and spectators alike.”

Tickets for the event, which will take place from 6:00pm onwards on Friday, April 26th at Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens, are on sale now and can be purchased on ESPN.com/FightingFitDubai or directly via PlatinumList.

The latest offering from Jumeirah, the NYC loft lifestyle-inspired hotel is ideally situated at the intersection of uptown and downtown Dubai and has several options for after-show nibbles and drinks for attendees.

The third season of the series will again see a legion of elite trainers and mentors, including Dan Costello, Waleed ‘Dynamite’ Din and Joe Ackery, oversee contestant training, which will include general fitness and boxing and ultimately, the transformation of the competitors from aspirants to contenders.
