The bell will ring frequently during the month of September – and not just in the classroom – as FloSports FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Powered by Everlast goes “back to school” with three cards from three different cities and three different promoters to open its Fall 2022 slate. The Autumn action begins with an outstanding Joe Hand Promotions card this Thursday, Sept. 1, at 7 p.m. with a clash of heavyweights.
“We’re planning for five fights between now and Thanksgiving, and we’re pleased to deliver all of that action for a low subscription cost on FloCombat,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. “We start this Thursday – a great weeknight show featuring the return of one of our favorites, Joey ‘The Tank’ Dawejko, as he meets an entertaining heavyweight opponent in ‘Fly’ Mike Marshall. Was Joey responsible for a brutal sparring knockdown that caused Anthony Joshua to lose three of his last five fights and all of his belts? We’ll get a full report from Siddique Farooqi and Michael Woods – founder of NYFIGHTS.com – on Thursday.”
As part of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE’s blockbuster multi-event deal with FloSports, Thursday’s 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. Fight fans can subscribe with a monthly or annual membership today at https://www.flocombat.com/ to be ready for a full schedule of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE events in 2022.
