The year 2021 saw two unprecedented and historic matchups in the sport of arm wrestling- the first and second edition of the grand “King of the Table” event, taking place in May and December respectively. Now, the coming year will be kickstarting with the third edition, “King of the Table 3” on 27th March, which will feature Wagner Bortolato and Ermes Gasparini, two arm wrestling powerhouses pulling each other on the table.

Aside from the Bortolato vs Gasparini matchup, KOTT 3 will also feature a highly competitive matchup between two of the greatest female arm wrestlers of all time, Sarah Backman and Gabi Vasconcelos. The undercard will also feature top arm wrestlers Rob Vigeant going up against Ryan Bowden.
