FROM FIGHT PROMOTION LEGEND FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP (WWW.LEGENDFC.COM):


Daniel Hooker is a representative of Strike Force, the academy which has produced some of the most elite competitors in the current generation of New Zealand fighters. A native of Auckland, Hooker was introduced to martial arts by a friend who was actively competing at the time. The young Kiwi soon discovered a natural talent for combat sports, and took his first professional fight shortly after his 19th birthday. Since then, Hooker has fought increasingly challenging opponents in both New Zealand and Australia, and is now regarded as one of New Zealand’s top lightweight prospects. With teammates like Sam Brown, Pat Crawley, Gareth Ealey, and Rod MacSwain having represented their team and their country in the Legend Ring, Hooker is now proud to follow in their footsteps.


Dan Hooker is also a pro kickboxer with a 9-1-3 record, winning the King In The Ring Middleweight Kickboxing Championship and WKBF X-Rules Welterweight Championship.
