The Best Amateur Fight Card on Vancouver Island.

That’s what Comox Valley promoter Lisa Petterson is promising when she presents King of the Rock 3 – The Redemption on March 3 at the Thunderbird Hall in Campbell River.

Headlining the event is Scott Judson of Knockout Muay Thai in Courtenay taking on Mike Downey of Peterec’s Gym in Victoria. Downey has been in Thailand for the past several weeks honing his skills for this match.

Petterson also has a full slate of up-and-coming mix martial arts fighters scheduled for the undercard, including locals from the Comox Valley and Campbell River.

Tickets ($100 VIP seating, $50 general admission) are available at the Paramount Music Hall in Campbell River, Comox Valley Pawn or Black Rose Tattoos in the Comox Valley, and by contacting Petterson at 1-250-898-1175.

KOTR 3 is the third fundraiser for BC Children’s Hospital, and as always the ring girls play a big role in raising those funds.

On Saturday, Feb. 25 the KOTR 3 Ring Girl Contest will be held at the Paramount Music Hall from 8:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. with all money raised going to BC Children’s Hospital.

Contestants must be 19 years and over. “You must like to be the centre of attention and be physically fit,” added Petterson. “You must be full of love and lots of fun. You must be an MMA fan, of course. Every contestant that is accepted will receive gifts, be in a random draw for $500 and get portfolio pictures at no charge. Last year we raised over $8,000 for the kids,” said Petterson of KOTR 2.

Black Rose Tattoo is accepting registration for the contest and more information is available by contacting Petterson at the number above or by checking her out on Facebook or visiting www.kingoftherock.com.
