FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS: KINGS BOXING TO AIR NINE BOUTS ON SEPT. 10 ON FLOCOMBAT, LIVE FROM 2300 ARENA IN SOUTH PHILLY

Pre-order now…. FloSports broadcast begins at 8 p.m. and subscription plans start at $12.50 per month

NEW YORK (Sept. 3, 2021) – Friday night fights are back on Sept. 10 in South Philly, as FloSports FIGHTNIGHT LIVE partners with Kings Promotions to air nine big bouts live from the famed 2300 Arena.

Popular Mid-Atlantic prospects will be featured beginning at 8 p.m. as familiar faces populate what’s sure to be an action-packed card to ring the closing bell on Summer 2021.

“We’re excited to be back at 2300 Arena with Marshall Kauffman and King’s Promotions next Friday night,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. “Not only will the spotlight shine brightly on prospects like Greg Outlaw and Elijah Morales – not only will we feature a comeback bout for fan favorite Christian Carto – but it’s back to school time and we’re officially in session with Mykal “The Professor” Fox joining the venerable Michael Woods for ringside commentary. Myke should be, by rights, a newly-minted world champion right now if not for WBA and Minnesota commission injustice last month, but we’re pleased that he will bring his knowledge and expertise as one of Kings Boxing’s own takes the mic.”

As part of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE’s blockbuster multi-event deal with FloSports, the 8 p.m. card featuring nine scheduled bouts will air exclusively on FloCombat. FIGHTNIGHT LIVE plans to deliver two shows per month – 24 boxing and MMA cards per year – 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.

Fight fans can subscribe with a monthly or annual membership today at https://www.flocombat.com/ to be ready for a full slate of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE events in 2021-22.

“The FIGHTNIGHT LIVE crew always does a professional job and features a production which tells the stories of these young warriors,” said promoter Marshall Kauffman. “We’re thrilled to be able to work with their team and provide a big-time platform for these prospects on FloSports.”

On Friday, Sept. 10, welterweight Outlaw (8-1, 3 KOs) of Bowie, Md., meets Edgar Torres (8-1-1, 4 KOs) of Woodbridge, Md., in an all “Old Line State” bout scheduled for six-rounds. The six-round co-feature will mark the much-anticipated return of popular 24 year-old South Philly bantamweight Carto (17-1, 11 KOs), who won his first 17 bouts before suffering his only loss on February 8, 2019, to Victor Ruiz at the 2300 Arena.

Unbeaten Elijah Morales (8-0, 4 KOs) of Trenton, N.J., Philly junior welterweight Quadir Albright (2-0, 2 KOs) and junior lightweight Julian Gonzalez (3-0, 3 KOs) test their perfect records.

Also, LeAnna Cruz of Allentown, Pa., makes her pro debut. That is LeAnna, below:

And more action– streaking welterweight Kashon Hutchinson (8-5, 2 KOs) looks to win his sixth-straight contest next Friday night.

Additional FIGHTNIGHT LIVE fall programming – such as event previews, some undercards and highlights – will be available through the FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Facebook channel, which boasts nearly 89,000 fans and almost 101,000 followers.
