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

Over the past decade, I've hosted over 50 major combat sports events (including MMA, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Boxing) in 16 countries on 4 continents. I'm seeking further co-operation with fighting promotions that require an experienced announcer with an international presence.

Peter Linka

To date, I've worked with the following promotions:

- Dynamite Fighting Show (DFS)
BRAVE Combat Federation
Fight Clubbing
- Venator Fighting Championship
- 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!”  ®

Team Builder - Coach


Peter Linka

Coaching was a true revelation, far more rewarding than I’d ever imagined. I realised that people are gifted with potential that they simply don’t realise or don’t believe they have. I came to believe in people more than they believed in themselves, and that belief led me to bring out the absolute best in so many of them.

Peter Linka

I thrive in creating long-lasting change in people to help improve their lives. By giving them the tools and means to go from where they are to where they want to be in life, they too thrive. That’s the reward. That’s why I love to build teams of successful people, working individually and together to achieve their goals.

Peter Linka

True freedom means being able to do what you want, and not having to do what you don’t want. That’s what living life on your own terms is truly about. That’s what I’m about.

Feel free to CONTACT ME to discuss the details of how we can achieve this in your life too.

 

Testimonials

I have Peter to thank for turning my moments of delivering speeches from a neutral business practice into a highly desirable professional experience. He made me enjoy selecting the emotions I want to nurture in the audience, balancing the quantity of fun and information I want to pass on to them, enjoying the pleasure attained from being at the centre of everyone's attention, and simply delivering the contents and arguments that constitute the purpose of a speech. All this came in such a natural and easy manner with Peter's amazing style of understanding an individual's way of expressing their own personality.”
Raffaella Bossi Fornarini – MD, Passportonline

 

Peter conducted specialized training to improve the on-camera presentation and communication of our television hosts and personalities from several countries. Peter’s unique ability to pinpoint the shortcomings of specific individuals and implement personalized solutions to increase their proficiency in the technical aspects of their craft, while simultaneously liberating the true nature of their personalities, proved indispensible. The results of his work were immediately noticeable and reflected in the increased viewership of our programs. Not only were we highly satisfied with Peter’s training, several of our partner TV channels conveyed their recognition of the marked improvement in the style and communication of our presenters.”
Zoltan Morvai – CEO, TeleMedia Group

About Me

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 combat sports event, preparing for a new film role, writing a song lyric, training business people in public speaking, hosting a corporate video, 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.
