Top fights are usually with hightly trained and experienced Gladiators and strict rules and fair conditions.

Circus Ultimo is a copy of the Circus Maximus but larger and built with the tools and knowledge of a Starfaring civilization.
Death Fights are transmitted on Sports Channels and are hugley popular. Direct advertisement is prohibited but sponsoring Fighters is not.
Betting on the outcome of the fights is a billion credit business and official betting is Pan Saran controlled but there are plenty of private legal and illegal betting brokers.
