4. To support local athletes

Every budding athlete has to start somewhere, and Tanko Events matchmakers have a nose for sniffing out the best emerging talent on the fight scene.

Not only does Tanko Events attract the best talent worldwide, they also offer a platform for home-grown athletes to develop and showcase their skill sets.
