Boxing on MSG, TONIGHT!

Beginning tonight at 9:00 p.m. boxing returns to MSG Network when MSG Fight Night kicks off five straight Fridays of boxing programming with Buddy McGirt vs. Pernell Whitaker from Madison Square Garden. The 1993 welterweight title fight featured what most believed were the two best pound for pound boxers in the world. Whitaker won the title by beating McGirt by unanimous decision to become the WBC Welterweight Champion.

MSG Fight Night will run every Friday from August 5th through September 2nd with other fights including Evander Holyfield vs. George Foreman, Mike McCallum vs. Jose Vallejo, Riddick Bowe vs. Michael Dokes, Hector Camacho vs. Rafael Williams, Iran Barkley vs. Darrin Van Horn and Tomasz Adamek vs. Steve Cunningham.

Editor/publisher Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the thought to be impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist Woods has covered the sport since then, for ESPN The Magazine, ESPN.com, ESPN New York, RING, and he was editor of TheSweetScience.com from 2007-2015. Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live since 2017. He now does work for PROBOX TV, the first truly global boxing network.
