Get ready and be prepared to witness high adrenaline action unlike anything you've seen before!" said Amir Khan, SBL Chairman.

In the Main Event, RookieXBT will fight loomdart, both cult hero crypto traders. Canadian RookieXBT is one of the youngest traders to have gained influence, and is known for his fearlessness, having won and lost fortunes by the age of 15. Loomdart, on the other hand, is one of the most experienced, and respected voices in Crypto. The winner will walk away with the first ever WBC Crypto Belt.

In the Co-Main, New Zealand big-hitter Hemi "The Heat" Ahio (17-0-0, 12 KO's) will face Dubai KO king Mohammed Ali (17-2-1, 17 KO's) for the vacant WBC Middle East Heavyweight Title.

(The card is subject to change).


RookieXBT said, "I'm happy to be participating in an event that brings the crypto family together in a way that's never been done before. It's extremely humbling. I'm looking forward to this event being a success and hopefully something that happens annually.".


Loomdart said, "There's something beautiful about being able to say that getting involved in crypto has led to me fighting some dude I've never met before. I can't wait for these to be regular events and let people get revenge for getting dumped on!"

SBL is the first promoter to leap headlong in the crypto space and states that is eager to contribute to UAE's vision for the future, and attracting more blockchain activity in the region.
