The Lords of the Ring show opened its doors on Saturday night at the Ulster Hall and featured seven World title fights. The event celebrated 25 years since ProKick owner and Coach Billy Murray won his own first pro world title in the same venue. A show of this magnitude has never been attempted before in Europe and every seat in the house was full as the show kicked off with competitors flying in from all over Europe.

The main event was Hamilton`s bout against Paolo Renna for a vacant WKN Professional World title. Hamilton had stated at an earlier press release that he would retire if the fight resulted in his defeat but his fans had no need to worry as the ProKick fighter gave it everything he had, and that was enough for him to take the title. The fight didn`t make the 12 rounds as Hamilton’s continual attack on Renna was too much and it was stopped in the fifth round.

Hamilton is back on track after experimenting with different styles of competitive fighting only to return to his original style. Hamilton has been awarded every major accolade in the sport over the past 20 years and with a record of 80+ fights he has a wealth of experience in his chosen sport. He raised the roof of the Ulster Hall on Saturday night – all he needs now is for a new opponent who can last in the ring.

Prokick took home five of the World titles; one was declared a draw and the other a KO in the first round. Billy Murray couldn’t have been prouder as family, friends and fight fans congratulated him on the superb result. Joe Lindsay stepped into the ring and called for more media attention on the sport as well as proper recognition for Billy Murray’s dedication and work within the sport and the local community.
