Friday Night Fights September 29th 2006

It’s official! The Friday Night Fights NYC Series has hit the big time!

With nearly 1,100 people attending and record sales on the internet, if the September 29th show was any indicator of the future…….the FNF NYC Series is poised to break out this Fall. Historically, our end of year shows are usually the most popular however it seems as though the word is out!

As mentioned above, a great crowd was on hand and there was definitely a great vibe throughout the crowd and the event.

As though they were almost coordinating, master of ceremonies Diamond Dave chose a more toned down black suit to match the understated beginning of the night. When the first bout started shortly after 8pm the crowd……while a good size, didn’t appear to be one of our larger groups. However, by 9pm the place was packed!

The Scion half time show featured Singer / Rapper “Nash” who pumped the crowd up before the main event, Chris “Mr. Classic” Romulo came on.

Of the 11 great matches there were three exceptional matches. Danny Terrell vs. Jonathan Cuba was a close and intense match with Cuba ahead in most people’s eyes and Terrell pulling out it with a left hook to stop the fight.

The fight of the night went to Naranjo vs. Fontanez. Fontanez, the 2004 Golden Gloves winner gave Naranjo a close match. While Gustavo took the first two rounds Fontanez came back in the third and it appeared that Naranjo was running out of steam. The 4th round was by far the most dramatic round of the night. Naranjo landed several shots early in the round and both boxers were toe to toe for the remainder of the match. Naranjo pulled out his 5th win in a row and also took home the best fight of the night trophy.

Another notable match was Spencer and Reno. Both boxers are regulars on the Friday Night Fights NYC Series so it was no surprise that these two would eventually meet up. Spencer had his moments in the fights but seemed unable to follow through. Reno, the consummate competitor managed to pull off the win, his 3rd in a row on the FNY NYC Series.

After this past event it certainly seems like things are picking up steam so make sure to mark October 27th down on your schedule and get your tickets now!
