The new point fighting promotion streamed on OSS TV has announced all eight fighters for their upcoming 160-169 tournament.

On December 12th, some of the top point fighters in sport karate will assemble at Pro Point headquarters to attempt to claim the second title awarded by the promotion. Superstar Bailey Murphy won the lightweight bracket by defeating formidable opponent Ryan George in the finals to become the first Pro Point champion, but now the stage is set for a new fighter to be crowned champion of a new weight class.

The first announcement for the 8-man tournament was none other than all-time great point fighter Jack Felton of Team All Stars. Felton was followed by Team Straight Up's Brandon Ballou, who was an alternate for the first event and has developed a reputation as one of the toughest fighters in the sport. Then another all-time fighter was added to the lineup with the announcement of Jason Bourelly of Team KTOC, the ageless wonder who is known for winning every major tournament in the sport. The bracket would only get deeper from there with the addition of Oscar Guzman, Luis Nunez, Team Dojo Elite-Power's Zain Pedraza, Jalen Lazenby, and Team Straight Up's Romani Alicea.
