Friday night (Nov. 30) was a great night for boxing fans in Memphis!

The return of Friday Fights to the city came with a great card of boxing matches flush with all the requisite elements of big time boxing – beautiful ring girls (local models), a dynamic announcer (Leon Gray), a raucous crowd and celebrities (local and national). And all at a phenomenal under-appreciated venue!

Flowers Power Boxing and CDA Promotions (supported by the TSD) without question, showed the potential of having regular high-level professional boxing right here in Memphis.

The Eclipse Convention Center (on Getwell in the southeast area of Memphis near Shelby Drive), a 30,000 square foot facility with all the amenities of any boxing arena, including ample parking and security, made the perfect location for this reintroduction of the "sweet science" to Memphis' boxing fans.

Over 500 fans came out to fill their appetites for live professional boxing in their own backyard. The promoters and fighters did not disappoint and left the fans looking forward to the next "round" of Friday Fights!
