Melton’s Assassins Muay Thai boxing gym have 23 fights lined up for their final hometown show of the year on Saturday.

The show, which takes place at the Market Tavern, on Scalford Road, features 20 Assassin fighters, six international bouts and a world title showdown.

Samantha Cullen opens with a demo bout against Emma Sanman, from Hull, followed by Harley Cole against another Hull fighter, Tommy Ashton.

Skylar Moulds takes on Kettering’s Jenny Eastman, and Verys Hirst goes up against Olivia Popracka before Jase Perks is involved in another demo with Assassins clubmate Tyler Steele.

Mustafa Agwan faces Zak Owen (Skelmersdale), the ever-improving Naomi Blankley takes on Birmingham’s Ellie Garfield, and Elizabeth Griffiths challenges Molly McCullock from London’s KO Bloodlive gym.

A boxing contest precedes the international bouts, with Mkaylin Kneeland against Portuguese Tomas Ranolho and Ireland’s Ava Walsh facing Skye Tomkinson (Birmingham).

Mohammed Rahi is pitted against Hull’s Brandon Dixon, while Joe Sharp and heavyweight Nathan Donovan both go up against Birmingham opponents.

Tyree Stevens is involved in an elbows-allowed fighter with Skelmersdale’s Dom Hill before the next international pits George Griffiths against Portuguese opponent Edi Barradas.

Darum Hassan is third-top of the bill against Hull’s Andy Yeomans, but co-headliners are siblings Thai and Iman Barlow.

Thai faces Portugal’s Wilso Da Costa, while Iman is last on in a world title bout against German fighter Tamara Platter.

Tickets are available from Assassin fighters, Nicko’s Fish Bar or on the door.

The show starts at 5.45pm and doors open 5pm.
