ESPN Friday Night Fights

On a perfect summer night with a diverse crowd described as “ecstatic” by the Chicago Tribune, the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority hosted ESPN’s Friday Night Fights. Throughout the festivities, the cultural mix of fans chanted for their favorite hometown boxers. The competitive fight card created non-stop action in the boxing ring, set up right behind home plate. This happened to be one of the biggest events in ISFA history and lived up to all the expectations.
