RINGSIDE 14/11/2018

Headed to the Fighting City of Philadelphia once again on Friday, FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Powered by Everlast will deliver a full, explosive, seven-bout card presented by Hard Hitting Promotions and Victory Boxing.

Some of Philly’s finest prospects will be in action live on any device wherever Facebook is available beginning at 6:30 p.m. E.T. on Friday, Nov. 16, before ShoBox: The New Generation hits the airwaves at 9:35 p.m. E.T./P.T. with a tripleheader featuring undefeated welterweight Jaron “Boots” Ennis (21-0, 19 KOs) as he takes on Raymond “Tito” Serrano (24-5, 10 KOs) in a red-hot, all-Philly matchup.

“We’re excited as always to work with the Hard Hitting Team and showcase their stable of up-and-coming prospects, this time with some hardware at stake,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media.

“Working on a card alongside ShoBox is a great step for our platform, and one that we have discussed for a while now. It will be great to see every outstanding bout on the card make air during another epic night of action in Philadelphia.”

On Friday, live from 2300 Arena in the City of Brotherly Love, a pair of National Boxing Association (NBA) belts are on the line.

Outstanding area prospects Branden Pizarro (12-1, 6 KOs) and Gadwin Rosa (8-0, 7 KOs) could walk out wearing the first championship straps of their young, promising careers, while Christian Tapia (6-0, 5 KOs), Angel Pizarro (4-0, 3 KOs) and Benny Sinakin (1-0) will risk their impressive undefeated records in front of a raucous hometown crowd and a global audience on Facebook.

“Hard Hitting Promotions is excited to team with FIGHTNIGHT LIVE once again for Friday’s event,” said Manny Rivera of Team Hard Hitting. “FIGHTNIGHT LIVE is a great partner that gives Hard Hitting Promotions a platform to showcase our talent and NBA title fights around the world.

Combined with the power of SHOWTIME Boxing on Friday, Philly once again makes a case as the Boxing Capital of the East Coast – that’s Hard Hitting’s Mission!”
