Victory 8 held a press conference at VSP Boxing Gym HCMC today unveiling the boxing team to represent Vietnam at Victory 8 later this year. Victory 8 – Legends of Hoan Kiem is scheduled for October 19 in Hanoi. It will be the largest sporting event in the history of Vietnam. The expected crowd is in excess of 20,000, and the television views will likely be more than 5 million. The show includes visiting pro fighters from Australia, India, the Philippines, and Thailand.
The Hanoi spectacular has been made possible courtesy of the assistance of the Central Government and the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Tourism. Victory 8 – Legends of Hoan Kiem is historic, as it is the first time professional boxing will be endorsed supported in Vietnam. The event will take place outdoor in the streets of the national capitol, in perhaps the most famous area of Hanoi – Hoan Kiem Lake. The Government has issued a statement proposing that they will block off the jurisdiction for 3 days to facilitate the international event.
