the Cage has planted its flag in the Philippines.
The California-based promotion recently signed a multi-year deal to
promote live events in the Southeast Asian nation. According to the
official release, KOTC plans to hold two shows on Philippine soil
this year in addition to opening a gym to facilitate the
development of Filipino prospects.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity in promoting, developing
and bringing exposure to these prospects in the Philippines through
the King of the Cage global platform,” said Ray Young, chairman of
King of the Cage Philippines, in the official release. “Soon, we’ll
have a KOTC world champion coming out of the Philippines that will
be recognized globally and will have the ability to compete
throughout the world.”
Young previously financed KOTC’s expansion into Mongolia, where the
promotion has secured a broadcast partner in Sport Box and plans to
hold its first event during the fourth quarter of 2013, according
to the official release.
