HBO Brings "Boxing After Dark" to Beale Street

When the weather gets hot, there's Nothing like Boxing in the Bluff City..

Another Big Fight card coming to Beale Street...and this one's at an affordable price.

Get ready for this summer's blockbuster...not in theatres but FedExForum.

Local boxing promoter Brian Young is teaming up with Lou DiBella and HBO Sports for the next big fight card here since Jermaine Taylor and Cory Spinks last May.

The "Black and Blues" card June 21st.

The 8 fight card features undefeated NABF Welterweight champ Andre Berto...against Miguel Rodriguez.

And a couple up and comers in the Heavyweight division between Chris "the nightmare" Arreola and Chazz Witherspoon.

Both are undefeated and vying to be that next great fighter the heavyweight ranks is starving for. 

Witherspoon is a unique fighter in that he actually has a college degree from St. Joes.

The Philadephia native carries a brief case.. seems nothing like the aspiring heavyweight champ he is.

But perhaps the most interesting aspect of this card is the price.

Ticket prices have been slashed way down.

$25 will get you in the lower bowl...$100 ringside.

Tickets prices 70-80 percent less with lower bowl seating only???

Now that's something to fight over!!!
