FIGHTNIGHT LIVE HITS NORTH BROAD STREET ON SATURDAY, FEB. 23, FROM THE HISTORIC MET IN PHILADELPHIA

PhilBoxing.com


Fan-friendly, interactive platform averaging almost 311,000 views per show in Season II as FREE series completes doubleheader weekend in the Reigning Fight Capital.

NEW YORK (Feb. 22, 2019) - Returning to the City of Brotherly Love on Saturday to complete a doubleheader weekend of FREE fights on Facebook, FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Powered by Everlast heads to hallowed ground on North Broad Street and the newly-refurbished Met Philadelphia for an outstanding card with Hard Hitting Promotions and Live Nation. Beginning at 8 p.m. E.T. from the city earning its moniker as the "Reigning Fight Capital," the fan-friendly FNL platform will feature eight highly-anticipated bouts in the renovated venue.


"The Met in Philadelphia has undergone an incredible transformation, and we're honored to showcase that transformation and Saturday's red-hot card from that hallowed and historic venue," said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. "The main event has the makings of a thriller for fight fans in Philly and beyond, and the undercard features some of our favorite up-and-coming Philly prospects and the return of Charm City Champion Malik Hawkins, who has been a longtime friend of our entire crew."

The free, interactive series - which has entertained more than 4.5 million fight fans since its platform premiere in May of 2017 - heads to Philadelphia once again as part of a FIGHTNIGHT LIVE doubleheader weekend spanning Feb. 22-23. The three-show February is part of a 2019 first quarter that showcases an outstanding six-card lineup featuring six different promotions and spanning four cities, which began with 203,000-plus views for Raging Babe's Philly Special on Feb. 8 live from South Philly and includes tonight's Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing Rockin' Fights 34 from the Paramount in Huntington, N.Y.

A pair of Pennsylvania State Title bouts headline Saturday's show. The Keystone State lightweight championship and two undefeated records will be on the line as two Philadelphians battle for supremacy - Jeremy "King" Cuevas (11-0, 8 KOs) takes on Steven Ortiz (9-0, 3 KOs). In the co-feature of the evening Samuel Teah (15-1, 7 KOs) - fresh off of his impressive November 2018 victory on ShoBox - will face dangerous southpaw Tre'Sean "Trigger" Wiggins (10-4-1, 6 KOs). Several other prospects dot the card, including former top-rated amateur lightweight Brandon Pizarro (13-1, 6 KOs), Baltimore welterweight Malik Hawkins(13-0, 9 KOs), super featherweight Floridian Gadwin Rosa (9-0, 7 KOs), Puerto Rican lightweight Christian Tapia (7-0, 6 KOs), bantamweight Emmanuel "Salserito" Rodriguez (3-0), Benny "The Jewish Bulldog" Sinakin (2-0, 1 KO) and Tamar "Princess" Israeli (2-0, 2 KOs).

FIGHTNIGHT LIVE has showcased more than 460 fighters and 16 promotions during 27 live event broadcasts from 18 different cities since May 2017, and in doing so, the interactive platform has generated the loyal interest of fight fans from across the United States and around the globe, including significant audiences in Mexico, the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe, and even fans in South America, Asia and Australia.
