Up-and-coming fighters who can kill ordinary men with their feet are the featured attraction at the IFC Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts bout, taking place this Saturday night at the Miami Mart Airport Hotel. Black-belt martial artists and businessmen Diego Molinari and Kevin Cardona founded Kinte Promotions in order to showcase the sport.
Kinte, which means golden hand, also takes its inspiration from the world of mixed martial arts leagues such as UFC, EliteXC, and Pride FC, whipping up entertaining and exciting bouts while providing quality venues for its fighters to promote their styles and skills. So why settle for ordinary fighting or boxing with just fists when you can watch these guys pummel each other with their feet as well? IFC Kickboxing is sanctioned by the ISKA. The first fight begins at 7 p.m.; doors open at 6. Tickets range from $20 for general admission to $40 for VIP; get them at www.ifclive.com.
