Michael Swann joined Prokick to become fitter and just six months into training he was completely hooked on the sport and entered the ring for his first competitive Full-Contact kickboxing bout. He also enjoys football when he has time off work as an Electrical Engineer. Michael has massed four fights to date and was to fight in Japan. Unfortunately he took a fight 2 weeks before Japan, in London and was knocked out. On medical grounds, he was therefore unable to compete in the 'Home of K1' He traveled with the team and helped out behind the scenes. Swann had his first bout of 2015 during the Total Divas event held at the Holiday Inn on 29th March and won by KO - his next fight takes place on 5th June 2016 as part of the ProKick Idols show at the Clayton Hotel, Belfast. Swann attended the WMAG in Switzerland in September 2015 and had 3 light contact matches with 3 wins. Michael Swann has successfully defended his WKN Irish full contact title against Cathal Dunne of Athlone. The pair fought at the Queens Hall Usual Suspects show February 5th 2017.

Biography

Further information about Michael Swann:
 


What got you interested in kickboxing?

I got interested in kickboxing as a way to become more fit and learn how to take care of myself.

What are your future ambitions?
Obviously to continue competing and on day have a Title Belt wrapped around my waist and my hand in the air.

What are your hobbies out side kickboxing? 

I like taking random journeys to places around the country I haven't visited before and going for runs to the various places in Northern Ireland that has breathtaking views like the Mourne Mountains and one of my favourite places is the top of the cliffs at Cave Hill. I don't really do much these days that isn't kickboxing related, I get up every morning go for a run then go to work and after that I'll head straight to Prokick then home again at night for dinner.

Favourite food?

I love steaks and chicken 



Favourite healthy food
Bananas and pink lady apples 
 


Favourite Band or Music or Artist
?
I
used to DJ so my music taste changes regularly one song will only be good for a few weeks then I'm onto something else
 
Favourite Movie?
Big into my horror films, can't beat a bit of Gore. Quite like the Nightmare on Elm Street films but the new Freddy is rubbish.
 


Favourite holiday destination?
I really like Ibiza it's a beautiful island and the music is always on point.

What makes you annoyed?

People who chew chewing gum with their mouth open, people who don`t indicate when they are driving (I`m a bit bad with the oul` road rage)



If you could be one person who would it be and why?

Someone who's completely minted. 
 


If you had a million pounds what would you buy first?

A holiday for a couple of months and just lie in the sun all day while the interest builds up.
 


What do your friends think of you kickboxing?

They all seem interested in it and are always very supportive, more so after me fighting in Gran Canaria recently when they were able to watch over the Internet live as I think the majority of them didn't have a good understanding of the sport until they watched it and they all loved it.
 


What do your family think of you kickboxing?

My family are very supportive and are pleased that I`ve found something I love doing (I owe alot to them).



Are you married? and how long?

No, no time for women, but I'm currently in a relationship with Prokick at the minute she's a hard girl to please but I love her lol. 
 


Kids ?
Not that I know of...
