FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Second Anniversary show details

Four undefeated Murphys Boxing fighters are set to showcase their skills on Friday, May 10, 2019, as FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Powered by Everlast celebrates two full years of action in the ring and heated debate in its comments section. Airing at 8 p.m. ET live from the new MGM Resort and Casino in Springfield, Mass., the interactive, free Facebook series showcases several up-and-comers looking to protect their perfect records and represent the boxing promotion founded from the Dropkick Murphys popular Celtic punk band.

“We are excited to be showcasing our talented roster of fighters for our third-straight event with FIGHTNIGHT LIVE. We have a great night of fights planned at a terrific new venue at MGM Springfield,” saidKen Casey, Dropkick Murphys Frontman and President and Founder, Murphys Boxing. “This card is stacked with undefeated fighters who all possess knockout power, this promises to be an exciting night.”

The FIGHTNIGHT LIVE lineup is headlined by unbeaten Ecuadorian Olympian Carlos Gongora (15-0, 12 KOs), who will put his unmarked record on the line against veteran Damien Ezequiel Bonelli (23-6, 20 KOs) in a matchup between two South American knockout artists. Murphys Boxing prospects Ray Jay Bermudez (6-0, 4 KOs) of Albany, N.Y., Anthony Velazquez (5-0, 5 KOs) of Springfield, Mass., and four-time Boston Golden Gloves Champion James Perella (2-0, 2 KOs) – who has fought each of his pro contests to date on FIGHTNIGHT LIVE – will look to preserve their perfect records on Friday, free on Facebook.

In addition to the action in the ring, former world title challenger turned commentator and trainer to world champions John “The Iceman” Scully will be honored with the latest installment of the Murphys Boxing “Warrior’s Code Award.” Scully becomes the third recipient of the honor, a tribute to the legendary “Irish” Micky Ward.

“We’re excited to be back with the Dropkick Murphys after amassing close to 500,000 views across two Murphys Boxing shows this Spring,” said Mark Fratto in a press release, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. “Carlos Gongora and the rest of the Murphys’ area prospects will deliver knockout performances for our free, interactive series, and we expect to elevate the profiles of those young warriors as we celebrate two full years of free boxing on Facebook via our platform.”
