It’s an interesting mix of strikers coming from the first two seasons of Power Slap: Road To The Title and strikers who made their debut on live events in 2023.
Here are the strikers who have momentum and are must-see TV at Power Slap 6.
The Power Slap welterweight champ is a soft-spoken guy until he’s provoked or if he’s standing on the Power Slap stage. In those moments, Christapher Thomas turns into “KO Chris” – a powerful force who has knocked out every opponent he’s faced. “KO Chris” is 5-0 in his Power Slap career, and he brings the perfect combination of intensity and entertainment each time he competes.
“KO Chris” hasn’t had a match since Power Slap 1, so while things have changed a bit around him, he’s more than ready to comeback and build his legacy as the champion.
During his time as a coach on Road To The Title season two, he didn’t actually get along with his counterpart Emanuel Muniz. The two got into multiple physical altercations and traded trash talk all season. Those exchanges have “KO Chris” charged up and ready to defend his title in devastating fashion.
The co-main event is a fitting place for Sheena Bathory, as “The Hungarian Hurricane” is certainly one of the biggest stars in the sport.
Bathory is 2-0 in Power Slap, with each of her wins coming by knockout. Those knockouts went viral on social media and prompted Power Slap fans to identify Bathory as an unbeatable force. She’ll be put to the test against former USA national wrestler and professional MMA fighter Jackie Cataline at Power Slap 6.

Another knockout win could launch Bathory to the top of the sport and it could solidify her as a foundational piece of Power Slap as the sport continues to expand.
Danie van Heerden
On Road To The Title season two, Danie van Heerden was one of the most likeable guys on the cast. The South African super heavyweight is quick-witted, funny, high-energy and, most importantly, he has all the components of a great striker.
The “Pitbull” has an iron chin, he’s a clean striker, and he has power for days. He’s a perfect addition to the Power Slap super heavyweight division and his matchup with fellow rising contender Makini Manu is the perfect next test to see just how good he is.
