This event promises a spectacular showcase of Boxing, MMA, and Kickboxing talent under Coach Jesh’s expert guidance.

Originating as a small-scale initiative, ‘Fight Night’ has grown into Sri Lanka’s premier combat sports event, consecutively held at the Royal MAS Arena for the past four years. This year, Fight Night V promises an inclusive platform where fighters of all backgrounds and skill levels compete on equal footing, a vision passionately championed by Coach Jesh.

Coach Jesh, with 25 years of professional fighting and 52 international placements, is a testament to Sri Lanka’s martial arts excellence, achieving the highest international honors and becoming the first & only Sri lankan Martial Artist to have won across  all six states of Australia. He emphasized that “Fight Night V revolutionizes matchups by pairing fighters not only by weight but also by experience level, ensuring every participant faces a well-matched opponent.”

This year’s event introduces a ‘Touch Boxing’ segment for ages 4 to 8, promoting early engagement in combat sports in a safe environment. An exhibition bout featuring a special needs child underscores the event’s commitment to inclusivity and community unity.

Highlighting diversity and empowerment, Fight Night debuts the women’s ‘Pink Belt’ championship, co-sponsored by BeWAXed and Swastha, providing a platform for female fighters to showcase their skills in a traditionally male-dominated sport.

International participants include a veteran Russian boxer, the current USA under 13 Boxing Champion, and a UK MMA fighter, highlighting Fight Night V’s global appeal.
