Linacre Media and Mark Fratto..
..hatched the Fightnight Live concept in 2017, and the second season of the series kicked off in PA Sept. 14.
..the former welterweight champion who just announced his retirement, for the superlative main event.
The series has been buoyed with news that Everlast has come aboard, as title sponsor. The venerable outfit has been providing equipment and apparel for boxers and fight folks since 1910.
I recommend you not read my account, but instead watch the bouts and particularly the final scrap between two ultra gritty junior welterweights.
I won’t tell you who won…and I promise this will not be time wasted by you.
