Tehelka Web Exclusive : Fight-to-finish in Mumbai’s fight club. Side shots.
These are the 'backstage' shots of fighters from around Maharashtra getting ready for the Full Contact Competition at Famous Studio.
Tehelka says, "Full Contact Championships, organised by Prashant Kumar, the co-founder of Full Contact Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.
An adman by profession, but a Mixed Martial Arts exponent for 20 years now, Prashant believes such fight nights will change the way Mumbai sees entertainment.
“It’s such a common thing in the US. But in India, even Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is still a fledgling sport. I bring fighters from all over India — from places such as Sangli or Haryana. Here, they are pitted with fighters who are trained in something completely different from them. So a Judo expert will fight a Kickboxing expert. They get recognition, they get money -- it’s a win-win situation.”
