The FDNY Boxing Team will take on the Garda Siochana Boxing Club of the Irish National Police Service for the 2018 Transatlantic Championship. This event, a/k/a “War on the West Side” will take place at the highly acclaimed Terminal 5, located at 610 West 56th Street. This venue features multiple spacious bars, a large ground floor viewing area, balconies overlooking the ring on floors two and three, plus a rooftop cigar bar where all the action can be seen on their two big screens. General admission is only $30 and VIP Ringside cost $50. Tickets are on sale now at www.FDNYBOXING.com or www.AXS.com. Group sales of 10 or more are available for FDNY members at a 25% discount by calling Bobby McGuire, President FDNY Boxing at 917-282-8727 (firstname.lastname@example.org). It makes for a great company night out. They are also looking to feature a couple of “grudge” matches. So if you have a problem with another member and both parties agree to settle it in the ring, they would love to hear from you. Any boxers under 201 lbs would need to be within 10 lbs of each other. You would be scheduled to box three 1 minute rounds. Experience is not necessary but they highly recommend that you start training ASAP. If you don’t have a trainer or coach, theirs are available at no cost. As always, proceeds from this event will benefit Building Homes for Heroes. This organization builds mortgage free, handicap accessible homes for our veterans returning home with severe injuries. We look forward to seeing you at the fights.
