Rain Would Not Impact Sunday Coney Island Boxing Show

No Weather Worries for Fans Attending the
Errol Spence, Jr. vs Leonard Bundu Boxing Show at Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk

This Sunday, August 21

BROOKLYN (August 19, 2016) – The often unpredictable summer weather forecast shouldn't scare away fans from the world title eliminator showdown between undefeated rising star Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. and once-beaten contender Leonard “The Lion” Bundu that headlines Premier Boxing Champions on NBC this Sunday, August 21 from Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn.
There will be no weather issues at Ford Amphitheater, which features a roof as part of the new outdoor, 5,000-seat open-air venue that serves as the cornerstone of Seaside Park and the Community Arts Center. The covered event space will provide fans with plenty of shelter from any pop-up showers or the late afternoon sun during the show.

Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by DiBella Entertainment and presented by BROOKLYN BOXING™, start at $35 and are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.ticketmaster.com and fordamphitheaterconeyisland.com. Doors open at 2:30pm with undercard bouts starting at 3 p.m., with the main event bout schedule to start at 5 p.m.
