Although funds was not insufficient but organizers Team Karabaw said the show must go on. According to Rayner Kinsiong, the event director, STAND was created to give a platform for amateur fighters to fight and gain experience in combat sports, in this case it’s KickBoxing and Boxing. He thank Borneo MajuBina and the other sponsors such as Fight Five and ProEve that made the event possible. He said that the event must go on to ensure fighters that have train hard have an opportunity to showcase their skills but more importantly to build their fight experience.
Last year fighters was able to take a break in the pool of Karambunai, this year the beach front which is just a few steps away was a welcoming sight and the fresh breeze from the seas certainly refreshes the mind and sooth sore muscles.

The 2nd series of STAND is also the first Kickboxing and Boxing events from Malaysia affiliated to WSOF ( World Series of Fighting ). WSOF is in support of local regional combat sports events to help promote it to a bigger global audience. Fights will be video and kept in their fight library and any fight fans in the world can log on and pay a minimum fees to enjoy a full library of fights from around the world. These gives local fighters more exposure and also at the same time promote the venue of the events. Rayner believe this is great opportunity to promote Sabah as a great sports tourism destination.
