For the first time in the COVID-19 era, FloSports FIGHTNIGHT LIVE runs back-to-back shows as the popular series returns this Saturday, Aug. 7, to deliver a highly-anticipated Jeter Promotions card live from famed 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia. Ten contests featuring popular prospects begin with an opening bell at 7 p.m. as the spotlight once again shines brightly on rising stars from Philly, D.C., Maryland and beyond.
“It’s always great to be at 2300 Arena and to work with Tony and Christen Jeter while providing a platform for up-and-coming warriors in the sport,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. “But the timing is also compelling for all of us at Linacre Media, as we’re coming off a great show from last Saturday. Anyone who tuned in last weekend gets this show as part of their 30 day subscription, as well as all of the other content that FloSports provides. This is where running regular shows on a regular platform really starts to benefit the fight fan and all sports fans.”
As part of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE’s blockbuster multi-event deal with FloSports, the 7 p.m. card featuring 10 scheduled bouts will air exclusively on FloCombat. FIGHTNIGHT LIVE plans to deliver two shows per month – 24 boxing and MMA cards per year – via the subscription-based FloSports platform.

“Jeter Promotions returns to Philadelphia and FloCombat for another action-packed card!” said promoter Tony Jeter.
On Saturday, Aug. 7, the Jeter Promotions card begins at 7 p.m. and features a scheduled ten matchups – all four-rounders as young and up-and-coming prospects take center stage.

Philly’s Tyhler Williams (4-0, 3 KOs) and Jaqeem “2 Sharp” Hutcherson (1-0) put their undefeated records on the in separate bouts, while Evan “The Highland Hitman” Harker (0-1) of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada looks for redemption after being upset in his April 24 pro debut at 2300 Arena.
