Philly Fight Night returns Sept 8
Junior lightweight Avery Sparrow, who insists on “meaningful fights” to boost his resume, finds himself in with another toughie when he boxes former four-time Canadian national amateur champion Joey Laviolette in the scheduled eight-round main event Friday evening, Sept. 8, at the 2300 Arena.
The Sparrow-Laviolette contest tops a nine-bout card which begins at 7.30 pm.
The C.P.B.C is sad to hear of the passing of one of the greatest boxing officials ever, Marlon Wright. Marlon worked numerous title fights for the C.P.B.C. we will miss him dearly. Condolences to all his friends and family.
