A Contender and Gladiator face-off against each other, but between them in the Sumo Ball, which is 2.2 metres in diameter and weighing approximately 75 kilograms. The Sumo Ball is suspended from the arena ceiling, 19 metres above. Both Gladiator and Contender are stood on a circular platform, 5.2 metres in diameter and 10 feet off the arena floor. The object of the event is for the Contender or Gladiator to push each other off the platform by using the Sumo Ball.

Both competitors must keep a firm hold of the Sumo Ball using the hand strap provided, letting go of this will result in forfeiting the event.

A standing position must be kept at all times, sitting on the platform is not allowed.
