Final Show of the Gleason’s Once Month Series Is TONIGHT, Sat., Dec. 9


The year in boxing is ticking down to the end of the term, and soon the Gleason’s team will be turning the calendar and kicking into gear in the new year. But first, today, Saturday Dec. 9, Gleason’s will host their final amateur show, which usually plays host to 200 plus patrons and some rock-solid action.

This is a once a month series, with kids on the come up, Golden Glove hitters and masters boxers all mixing and matching. “Anybody with an up to date license can compete,” said Bruce Silverglade, the owner-proprietor, on Friday. “We always get 14 or 15 fights. It’s grassroots boxing. Some of these kids, you’re going to see them as Golden Gloves champions, you might even see them at the Olympics.”

Doors open at 5 PM, first fights is at 6 PM, and I recommend you make a night of it. Catch the show, then head out and hit one of the superb area restaurants in DUMBO, which is a ultra-cool neighborhood in Brooklyn, the buzziest of boroughs.
