Circle on Your Calendar, Fightnight Live Is Back on Saturday, Oct. 1

On Friday night, after I did color analysis for the Fightnight Live show at Wind Creek Casino in Bethlehem, PA, I took off my headset, and walked right over to the promoter of the event, Marshall Kauffman. “THAT was a great card,” I told him, excitedly shaking his hand, because I was amped at the fact that every bout had brought something to the table, and the main event delivered action galore.

The Jonathan Rodriquez v Oscar Vasquez main event on Sept. 23...can the Oct. 1 King's feature top it?

“Wait'll you see what we got next week,” Kauffman responded.

It so happens that I will, and you can, too, because Fightnight Live is back on Saturday, with more fights put together by Marshall and King's. Here is a release which informs you of the talent set to strut their stuff from Philly on Saturday:
