Now in its third series, Fighting Fit Dubai, the homegrown TV hit is about to launch its new 28-episode season on ESPN.com. Applications are still open online until February 24, with producers expecting the cast of the show’s third season to be its most diverse yet.

Who can apply?

Male and female contenders between 25 and 57 years of age who have never fought as a white collar, amateur or professional boxer in a boxing match, can apply online by visiting Fighting Fit Dubai social channels (@fightingfitDXB). All those who apply and meet the basic criteria will be invited to initial trials which start on March 1.  Over its past two seasons, the homegrown series has seen contestants transform not only physically, but also mentally.

What happens during the competition?

Potential contestants will battle through six weeks of grueling training and challenges, leading to a final Fight Night on April 26 at Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens, which will determine the winning team.

From trials beginning on March 1, two teams of six people and 12 reserves will be selected, with teams facing weekly challenges and showdowns in the ring, not only fighting for glory but for their chance to stay in the show.
