The summer heat sizzles just outside of Philly this Saturday as FloSports FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Powered by Everlast partners with its 25th promoter – David Price and Price Promotions – to showcase bantamweight prospect and former seven-time national amateur champion Dylan “The Real Dyl” Price as he takes on his next challenge in an NBA title contest.
Show No. 61 for the fan-friendly streaming platform begins at 7 p.m. live from the Elevations Event Center in Chester, Pa.
“We’re excited to be able to watch budding superstar Dylan Price face his toughest test as he continues to ascend in the bantamweight ranks,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media.
“And it’s always a pleasure to partner with Everlast and Flo Sports to provide this platform for burgeoning prospects, many of whom will earn their first pro victories on Saturday. Siddique Farooqi and Michael Woods will deliver all of the action ringside, it’s going to be a Midsummer Scorcher.”
As part of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE’s blockbuster multi-event deal with FloSports, the 7 p.m. card will air in its entirety on FloCombat. FIGHTNIGHT LIVE plans to continue to deliver a regular slate of boxing and MMA cards 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.
Additional FIGHTNIGHT LIVE programming – such as event previews, some undercards and highlights – will be available through the FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Facebook channel, which boasts nearly 88,000 fans and almost 100,000 followers, and on the Everlast page which is followed by more than 441,000.
On Saturday night, the 10-round main event will be contested for the vacant NBA Bantamweight World Title featuring seven-time national amateur champion, Dylan “The Real Dyl” Price (14-0, 10 KOs). Price, already the NBA Intercontinental titleholder from Philadelphia by way of Sicklerville, N.J., takes on a native of Glassboro, N.J., Drew “Cruel Intentions” Correll (10-2, 8 KOs).
Meanwhile, Tarique “Showtime” Green (1-0, 1 KO) looks to keep his record unblemished and a host of local stars make professional debuts on the six-bout card, including former Pennsylvania amateur champions Frankie Lynn of Chester, Pa., and Jalique “Duck, No Action” Holden of Wilmington, Del.
“This card is super exciting because we have Dylan Price and Drew Correll fighting for the vacant NBA Bantamweight title and for our fresh-start fighters, not one of them possesses a loss,” said David Price, ThD, of Price Promotions. “Even though several fighters are debut fighters no one wants their 0 to go, so on Saturday, July 16, we should see some truly determined fighters putting it all on the line.”
