The Church Street Boxing Gym’s Friday Night Fights NYC Series brings the “Mega” back into “Mega Fights” on Friday May 14th, 2010 with 4 championship fights in addition to the Main event: Sean Hinds vs Chris “Mr. Classic” Romulo!
Whether or not you’re a fight fan the Friday Night Fights NYC Series is known throughout NYC as the event to be at. And on Friday May 14th, “The Big Show” will feature more than a dozen Muay Thai and Boxing matches. “Only the best of the best fighters ever to appear on our series will be competing at this event” said event promoter Justin Blair who also happens to own the Church Street Boxing Gym, “Further more, this time they are all fighting each other!”.
Both Sean Hinds and Chris Romulo have dominated the local fight scene and have competed internationally however, neither of these middle weights have ever faced one another. The question of who would win if they ever met has been a topic of debate for well over a decade.
The popularity of Muay Thai has grown in recent years, especially in New York, where MMA is still illegal whereas Muay Thai is perfectly legal. Many industry insiders expect that the May 14th Muay Thai event will be on scale so much larger than any other, that it could very well create an unprecedented awareness of the sport
The Friday Night Fights NYC are the perfect combination of the old school New York club fight shows of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s and the new genre of “hipsters and tastemakers”, those new enthusiasts to the sport – Urban professionals and trendsetters itching to get a taste of the old school club fights of yesteryear. Since the events began in 1997 the crowd just keeps on growing – what started as “under ground” fights for a couple of hundred people has grown into a real happening, consistently attracting sell out crowds!
