Lion Fight introduces Justin Roberts as new ring announcer
Lion Fight Promotions CEO Scott Kent announced today the hiring of Justin Roberts as the organization’s new ring announcer.
The former host and announcer for WWE will make his debut at Lion Fight 45 set for Saturday, July 28th at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
“Being able to bring Justin aboard is absolutely fantastic,” said Kent. “As Lion Fight expands its worldwide audience, Justin brings his own unique fan base to Lion Fight. Through Justin’s passionate following of combat sports fans, we are very excited about having the opportunity to show the skill level of our Muay Thai athletes to a huge new audience that haven’t yet seen what the Lion Fight brand is all about.
“On top of Justin’s massive social media presence, he is unquestionably an extremely talented ring announcer who will add something special to the presentation of Lion Fight to the fans watching in the arena and to those watching at home as well.”
Before he completed his high school education, Justin Roberts was already reaching for his ring announcing degree. At the age of 16, Justin began ring announcing for professional wrestling in Chicago and worked his way throughout the industry. Right after graduating from the University of Arizona, he became the ring announcer for World Wrestling Entertainment. For over a decade, Justin hosted and announced live and televised events all over the world for 52 weeks a year. Twenty-two years later, his career is the ultimate proof that dreams can come true and nothing is impossible.
His incredible WWE journey gave him the opportunity to announce every major TV show, Pay-Per-View and legend. From Smackdown to RAW, Summer Slam to Wrestlemania and The Undertaker, Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and The Ultimate Warrior to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio, Brock Lesnar and John Cena.
Over the years, he has also announced for The Toughman Contest, WEC, CBS Sports Boxing and most recently, hosting events with the legendary Grammy-award winning band, Tool.
On top of his announcing, Justin is also an actor, voice over artist and best-selling author. His story is unique and inspiring as he has shown time and time again that it’s possible to make a career out of hobbies and that anything is possible. The best-selling autobiography, Best Seat In The House: Your Backstage Pass Through My WWE Journey is available in hardcover, e-book and audio (narrated by Justin himself) and tells his story of chasing and living what seemed like an impossible dream. It almost serves as a how-to, giving tips from experience for others trying to reach their goals.
In his next chapter, Justin will bring all of his experiences, professionalism and ring announcing style to the world of Muay Thai through Lion Fight.
