Philadelphia Boxing Continues the Tradition

All that you’ve heard about Philadelphia boxing is true; the numerous gyms are churning out rough, tough fighters who always arrive in the ring prepared to give it their all.   Joey Eye Boxing debuted earlier this year with a “Fight Card of the Year” kind of night at the World Gym on Roosevelt Boulevard in northeast Philadelphia and they’re putting many of the same fighters back in the ring.

Joey, a former Philadelphia fighter, has again joined with NIT Management to put together the following bouts for an August 26th show.  The show starts at 7:30 with undefeated light heavyweight, Chucky Cavallo from Trenton, NJ, and will build in excitement before featuring former Olympian, Terrance Cauthen in the main event and a rematch of Rami Ibraham vs. Dasine Asberry (the fight of the night on the previous Joey Eye Boxing card).  Plenty of free parking is available and the venue is cozy.
