Singer turned actor Yo Yo Honey Singh will soon be adding another feature to his cap. Apparently, Singh who is trained in mixed martial arts (MMA) and kick-boxing, is all set to launch a boxing tournament, Global Fighting Championship (GFC), in Dubai on May 29.
The said tournament will have top notch international fighters participating from all over the world. Some known names featuring in this tournament from the world of heavy weight international boxing are, Badr Hari, Peter Graham, Arnold Oborotov and Stefan Leko. It is learnt that each of the four will be contending for the championship title, while the American ring announcer Michael Buffer has also been roped in to add that extra zing.
In order to promote the tournament, Singh will be joined by his friends Shafeeq, Zak D and Prince Amir as well as the Dubai Sports Council. Apart from them, Singh intends on inviting his celebrity friends, business associates and politicians to Dubai this month to witness the fight live. An excited Yo Yo says, “I love the sport and I am positive that the amount of love and support I have received from my audience will make this a success. My friends in Dubai and I plan to make this a regular property and working towards coming up with the next edition after six months.”
