A FIGHTER who was set to take part in a Hardest Man tournament has pulled out of the competition.

Trevor Soko from Eastleigh pulled out for reasons he did not want to disclose to the Daily Echo.

The Muay Thai fighter was hotly tipped as one of the favourites in the competition. The organiser of the tournament Will Martin said that Trevor pulling out is a big loss. He said: “Trevor is very talented and capable fighter and it will be hard to find someone who can replace him.”

The Hardest Man tournament will see eight men pit their wits against each other at Fleming Park Leisure Centre in Eastleigh on August 10
