Fight Night Boxing event Saturday at the Jackson County Civic Center

Boxing is coming to Pascagoula. Saturday night at the Jackson County Civic Center, Black Royalty LLC and SAPromotions are putting on a Fight Night event.

Their goal is to give local prospects exposure and bring excitement about the sport to South Mississippi.

Along with giving young athletes exposure, they say building a boxing community also gives youth in our community something to do with their free time that brings some positive energy. Promoter Stevie Norwood said, “You know we are trying to get the best that we can and like I said, also looking forward to working with the youth. We are trying to give them something to do, give them a platform to try to help put positivity in their life and stuff like that. We hope this event brings a lot of people out, kind of like on short notice, it’s something that we are going to be trying to do quarterly, every 60 to 90 days we try to throw an event here in Mississippi.”

There will be seven bouts featured Saturday night and it is free to attend. It starts at 5 p.m.
