SOUTHERN Pro Wrestling (SPW) New Zealand heavyweight champion “Antidote” JK Moody will defend his title against former best friend Kane Khan in the Fight for Gold event next month.

SPW founding member Troy Crosbie said for the first time in SPW, the show on Saturday, March 3, at the Invercargill Workingmen’s Club would also feature a ladder match and tag team championships.

“The ladder match is a quite dangerous concept. There will be a briefcase hanging above the ring containing a contract that gives the winner a shot in a heavyweight championship anytime they please. In order to get it they need to climb a ladder to grab it. There will be four people in the ring for this match and it will be interesting and scary to see it,” he said.

International star “JXT”, of Melbourne, will face local wrestler Powerhouse T-Rex in a New Zealand v Australia match.

The show will also feature a rematch between Englishman “Hooligan” Marcus Kool and Invercargill fighter “Hammer”, who needed just 48 seconds to beat him in their last fight.

Crosbie said the audience could expect to be thoroughly entertained.

“Once people come through the door they understand what it is about and enjoy themselves. It’s a family-friendly event which is a showcase of athleticism, physicality and entertainment.”

Fight for Gold, Saturday, March 3, Invercargill Workingmen’s Club Corinthian Centre. Tickets at www.eventfinda.co.nz and at the Invercargill Workingmen’s Club, adult $15, under-16 $10.
