Fox to headline upcoming FIGHTNIGHT LIVE card

Having recently just exceeded the six-million views mark and celebrating its second anniversary, FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Powered by Everlast next sets its sights on our nation’s capital, ready to deliver a big Washington, D.C., card on Saturday. Starting at 7:15 p.m. ET live from the new Entertainment and Sports Arena, the interactive, free Facebook channel will feature seven bouts from the nation’s capital, the 21st city which has played host to the series.

“Our tenth show of the calendar year takes us to our nation’s capital, and we’re really excited about featuring a world-class individual in Alantez Fox, decorated police officer Tiara Brown and a new group of warriors from the DMV on our Facebook platform,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media in a press release. “In addition to the venerable Michael Woods, we’ll have WBC World Champion Franchon Crews-Dezurn as part of our commentary team, and that on the heels of us surpassing six million views at our second anniversary. It’s been an exciting year so far for FIGHTNIGHT LIVE.”

Saturday’s FIGHTNIGHT LIVE card is headlined by contender Alantez “SlyAza” Fox (24-1-1, 11 KOs), who has stood out not only in the D.C. area but on the national level as well. Fox faces veteran Nick Brinson (19-4-2, 9 KOs) of upstate New York in a super middleweight contest over eight rounds. Recently named “Washington D.C. Police Officer of the Year,” undefeated pro Tiara Brown (7-0) meets four-time world title challenger Angel Gladney (10-14-1, 6 KOs) of South Carolina. Local standouts Patrick Harris (15-0, 8 KOs), Jordan White (7-1, 6 KOs), Sam Crossed (8-0, 5 KOs), Renaldo Gaines (9-2, 3 KOs) and George Harris (2-0, 2 KOs) all put their formidable records on the line, free on Facebook.

“Tricky Entertainment is committed to bringing world-class boxing back to D.C.,” said Erwin Pendergrast, President of Tricky Entertainment in a press release. “Our Tricky Entertainment Family had a great show last winter and the fact that we’ll have a global audience for Saturday’s show via Facebook FIGHTNIGHT LIVE is a testament to the direction we’re headed in and how much we’re growing.”
