ANNAPOLIS, Md. (April 27, 2022) – On Friday in South Philly, FloSportsFIGHTNIGHT LIVE continues to deliver its spring schedule with an outstanding seven-bout card in collaboration with Pennsylvania-based boxing juggernaut Kings Promotions. The opening bell is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. at the vaunted 2300 Arena – and with popular Philly prospect Christian Carto headlining, the fireworks in the ring will commence shortly after.
“Friday’s lineup in South Philly features knockout power up and down the card – in fact, the featured fighters combine for a 76 percent KO ratio,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. “So many FIGHTNIGHT LIVE veteran boxers return to our air on FloSports – it’s an incredible ‘who’s who’ of Marshall Kauffman’s up-and-comers. Michael Woods and Mykal Fox will be in the booth to deliver all of the action to fight fans – expect a lot of replays of devastating stoppages.”
As part of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE’s blockbuster multi-event deal with FloSports, the 7:15 p.m. card will air in its entirety on FloCombat. FIGHTNIGHT LIVE plans to continue to deliver a regular slate of boxing and MMA cards via the subscription-based FloSports platform. Fight fans can witness every explosive knockout and drama-dripped decision from regional rising stars – as well as the 10,000-plus events streamed annually by FloSports via the web, the FloSports mobile app (iOS and Android), or connected TV platforms such as AppleTV, Roku, FireTV, Vizio and others – for as little as $12.50 per month.

This Friday, 25 year-old South Philadelphia bantamweight Christian Carto (18-1, 12 KOs) will headline a seven-bout card when he meets a veteran Argentine warrior and former national champion in Ernesto Sebastian Franzolini (14-12-2, 1 KO) in an eight-round contest. In his last bout, Carto returned to the ring after a two-and-a-half year hiatus with a first round stoppage over Yeison Vargas last Sept. 10, also at 2300 Arena. In an eight-round bout, undefeated welterweight and former USA Olympic Trials champion Paul Kroll (9-0-1, 6 KOs) of Philly returns to action leading a star-studded list of Kings Promotions’ undefeated rising stars also featured on Friday’s card, including junior welterweight Quadir Albright (5-0, 5 KOs), lightweight Julian Gonzalez (6-0, 6 KOs) of Reading, bantamweight Jeremy Adorno (6-0, 2 KO s) of Allentown and welterweight fight Thanjhae Teasley (1-0, 1 KO) of Bethlehem.
