Ring Announcer

I am an international ring announcer based in Europe, born and raised in Australia, hence my slogan: THE THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER.

Peter Linka

After announcing the superfights at the 2013 K-1 World Grand Prix, I became the resident ring announcer of the Final Fight Championship (FFC), hosting Kickboxing and MMA events across Europe and in the USA.

Peter Linka

To date, I've hosted close to 40 major combat sports events (including MMA, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Boxing) in 13 countries on 3 continents. I'm seeking further co-operation with fighting promotions that require an experienced announcer with an international presence.

Peter Linka

I have worked with the following combat sport promotions:

- Elite MMA Championship (EMC)
- XFN
- German MMA Championship (GMC)
- Cage Fighting
- Innferno Fighting Championship
- Prague Fight Nights
- A1 World Grand Prix
- Prestige Fight
- Glory (undercard)
- Final Fight Championship (FFC)
- K-1 World Grand Prix (superfights)

My catchphrase derives from the ferocity of Kickboxing and MMA bouts that fighters regularly refer to as 'war', as well as the nature of the main event itself; the bout that everyone awaits with the greatest anticipation: 

“LET'S SEE THE WAR

     WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!”  ®

 

The following showreels present samples of my announcing style:

Lyricist

I write lyrics in many different genres, from pop to theatre musicals, through to rock and progressive-metal. Apart from songs for the music industry, I also write lyrics for television commercials and film soundtracks.

The following albums feature my song lyrics:

Peter Linka

‘Shake It’ is a fun and vibrant album by an exceptionally talented young artist, Anna Patai. This was my second major collaboration with composer and music-producer Norbert Szucs who, together with Anna, truly nailed the music on this amazing album. Check out the videos of "Shake It" and "Colors" below, as well as several clips of Anna's TV appearances. And listen to the other tracks on DEEZER.

 

 

Peter Linka

‘Son of a Gun’ is an ‘80s style classic retro-rock album featuring the brilliant guitar work of Mr Zsolt, the incredible voice of Rudy Cardenas (American Idol finalist), and original hard-nosed rock music by versatile composer and music-producer Norbert Szucs. It features 5 classic rock covers and 7 original tracks. Check out the videos of the title track, “Son of a Gun”, and “Lemme Be Your Man”, below. And listen to the other tracks on DEEZER.

 

I'm always searching for new collaborations; so if you've got any new song ideas, CONTACT ME for lyrics! ;-)

Testimonials

“Peter Linka has worked with General Motors on several events. We first worked with Peter on an international gala dinner in Budapest. Already during our first project together, our collaboration with Peter was completely harmonious. We were so satisfied with his work that we later called on him to collaborate with us at Opel events as well. One of our most memorable undertakings with Peter was the Central and Eastern European launch of the Opel Astra Sedan in Turkey, where Peter hosted a series of five gala dinners held over an entire week. I can confidently recommend Peter Linka’s services to other companies.”
Ildiko Biro – Marketing Communications Specialist – Opel Hungary

 

We have been working with Peter Linka for over ten years on professional conferences, team building events, gala evenings, and other large scale functions. Peter is not merely an artist-for-hire at such events, but rather a creative partner: a stage personality upon whose presence we can confidently base the success of an entire evening. Furthermore, Peter also possesses one of the most important qualities of a leading professional: he is a humble artist who does not push himself into the forefront, but always aspires to best serve the requirements of the given program. Working with Peter is always an experience.”
Zsolt Mesko – Director, Producer – Mondavio

About Me

Peter Linka

Whatever I’m working on, I’m always striving to add that ‘little plus’, which makes that particular project just that little bit better.

This is true whether I’m hosting a fighting sports event, checking the text of a voice-over, preparing for a new film role, writing a song lyric, hosting a television program, or welcoming the guests of an international company at a gala dinner.

I was raised by Hungarian parents in Australia where I graduated from university with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronic Engineering. However, my passion was always for the performing arts and entertainment. In 1988, I received a scholarship to study at the Academy of Drama and Film in Budapest. So I left Australia to pursue my passions in Europe. This has lead to vast collaborations with wondrous people from all over the globe, resulting in the diverse and colourful professional life that I am blessed with today.

A friend once described me as a 'renaissance man'. True, I do many things. As to what I do when, that’s always changing. One thing is always certain: whatever I'm doing, I’m always doing it with passion. In everything I do, my ambition is to always leave a mark that makes people feel, "We got more than we expected, and it’d be great to work with this guy again."

Feel free to explore my Business and Creative activities. I trust you'll find something of interest.
