Colby Madison Part Of Kings Promotions "Tuesday Night Fights" Card On Fight Night Live!


Following a Season II opener viewed by almost 197,000 and the revelation of its new title sponsor, FIGHTNIGHT LIVE Powered by Everlast partners with King's Promotions once again, closing out the month of September with Tuesday Night Fights. Fans can catch all of the action in the center of the ring on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. live from the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA.

"Tuesday Night Fights! We love being able to present weeknight shows filled with up-and-coming fighters, giving fans the opportunity to relax in their living rooms and catch all the action on any device, including their big screens," said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. "We're looking forward to four or so hours of action, so catch us at home or on the go live, or anytime next week on demand through the miracle of Facebook."

"King's Promotions is ecstatic about almost 200,000 views for our Sept. 14 show, especially on short notice," said Marshall Kauffman of King's Boxing. "We continue to be one of the busiest promoters anywhere and we're excited to bring the best-quality boxing to fight fans on Facebook."

In the main event on Tuesday, Anthony Mercado (11-4, 9 KOs) of Philadelphia and Puerto Rico takes on Victor Vazquez (10-4, 3 KOs) in what figures to be an exciting super lightweight bout scheduled for eight-rounds for the World Boxing Foundation Silver International title. Also in action, undefeated featherweight prospect Stephen Fulton (13-0, 6 KOs) of Philly meets veteran Esteban Aquino (12-5, 7 KOs) of the Dominican Republic. Middleweight Money Powell (7-0, 4 KOs), rising featherweight prospect Raeese Aleem (11-0, 5 KOs), heavyweights Colby Madison (6-0-2, 4 KOs) and Michael Coffie (3-0, 2 KOs) and featherweight Martino Jules(4-0) will all risk their undefeated records.

Owings Mills, MD heavyweight Colby Madison will be in a six-round contest against Nicoy Clarke of Jersey City, NJ. Madison (6-0-2, four KO's) battled Guillermo Del Rio to a six-round draw on April 6th in Philadelphia, PA. Clarke (2-1) won a four-round majority decision over Jose Nunez on August 10th in Philadelphia.
