“Our 65th show continues our schedule of three fights in three weeks and this one features one of our favorites, Christian Carto, and a host of others who have proven KO power,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. “We had an outstanding time last week with Marshall Kauffman and the King’s Promotions stable upstate and we know 2300 Arena will be electric on Saturday. Siddique Farooqi and Michael Woods – founder of NYFIGHTS.com – will be on the call to make certain of it.”
