Shawn Burton and Aaron Robinson are to fly the flag for Britain as they get set to take on Argentina's finest.

The kickboxing duo from the Lincoln Fight Factory are to travel to South America in April to battle it out for world titles.

Battling out over 12 two minute rounds, Burton will face world champion Ivan 'El Terrible' Alverez in the city of La Roija.

Club mate Aaron Robinson is also in world title action on this event when he meets Gaston Granados at 69kg. Both titles will be under the OMDC Sanctioning body.

Ahead of this the Fight Factory's Sergio Garcia travels up to Motherwell, Scotland on February 16 to fight Jamie Mcleland for the Golden Belt British title at 63.5kg.

Garcia has lost his last two fights in Scotland when he challenged for the European honours.

Robinson and Tom Scutt make a trip up north to Sunderland on March 2 where they fight Craig Carter for the WUMA Pro British title and Dean Petty for the WUMA Amateur British title respectively.

Scutt is looking to extend his 7-0 record and add another title to his collection and Aaron hope to get back to winning ways.

The following weekend the club's new generation of fighters have their first taste of ring action in a gym shows.

Fighters such as Wiktor Gornicki, Jack Jenkinson, Michael Rudd, Karl Trice, Dayle Barnaby, the Rainey Brothers, Nicky Matchett and many more will all feature.

The club is also set to hold another Kickboxing Classics event at the Lincolnshire Showground on April 27.

The event promises to be another night of kickboxing and boxing action.

The club is currently in negotiations to bring fighters from Spain and Ireland to compete.

Tom Scutt will headline the event when he defends his ISKA English title against Grantham's undefeated Sam Harper over five, two minute rounds.

The club rounds off a busy first-half of the year with a trip to France for three of their fighters. On June 15, Burton, Scutt and Michael Rudd will head to Toulouse.

Burton fights current world champion William Saidi, Scutt takes on Renaud Chavaudra and Rudd faces Franck Morrini.
