Undefeated UAE Warriors heavyweight champion Chi Lewis Parry is calling on Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competitors to show they have the fight to possibly ‘live the dream’ like him.
Parry, who teaches in Windsor, is helping to launch the Find A Star competition, which is open to men and women aged 18 and over who haven’t before stepped into the ring and have some time on their hands to learn the ropes to become a cage fighter.
Up to 20 contenders will be selected to undergo a medical, work with a sports scientist and complete a rigorous training programme before taking part in specialist bootcamps early next year, after which the champion will be crowned.
The winners of the TV show will receive a lucrative multi-fight contract with promotors Prim3, star in a Prime3 fly-on-the-wall documentary series building up to their bouts and earn a long-term contract with Mogul Management and a one-year sponsorship deal with RDX Sports.
Parry, who grew up in Windsor said: “Mixed Martial Arts is really on the map now so we’re launching Find A Star to enable someone new to break onto the fight scene and follow in my footsteps to the top.
“You don’t have to have any experience, but you will definitely need an appetite to be the best. I’ll soon be fighting the greatest ever UFC fighter, Jon Jones, on the same fight card as superstar Conor McGregor, and I want the Find A Star winner to live the dream too.”
More details can be found at www.mmatv.com and the closing date for entries is December 11.
