Ali-Spinks in da Dome (Video)


On Friday (6.03), America and the boxing community lost a great. Muhammad Ali died at the age of 74 years-old according to a family spokesperson. Ali was a man who suffered several setbacks, but always pulled himself off the canvas and rose to higher heights—like the City of New Orleans. On September 15, 1978, Ali traveled to NOLA to defeat Leon Spinks and win the WBA Heavyweight belt for the third time.


Where to Watch Mayweather-Pacquiao in NOLA


Floyd Mayweather’s last run in with New Orleans involved a lawsuit against the Wine Bistro for claiming that the champ and his “Money Team” would be at a Super Bowl kickoff party. Litigation aside, New Orleans is geared up for the fight versus Manny Pacquiao tonight.


Fight Night in the Crescent City: Local Boxing Standouts Gear Up For 3-Bout Card on Erato


by Emma Boyce

Friday Night Fights may be a big show. But in terms of fighting prowess, Saturday's card is the main event. Professional boxing comes to the Big Easy December 1 as the Crescent City Boxing Gym (3101 Erato) gears up to host three big bouts in their facility at 8 pm. On Friday, NoDef stopped by the gym to get a handle on how the pre-fight hype was shaking out.


Freret Friday Night Fights Get 'Sexy'


Freret Street Boxing Gym likes their Uptown neighborhood so much, they decided to put a ring on it. The ever-popular Friday Night Fights returns for the first time since early May with the “Sexy Summer Edition,” set to take place this Friday, July 22, at 7 p.m.


Towel Thrown in Again


by Shay Sokol

Yet again, tonight's Friday Night Fights on Freret St. has again been postponed due to cold weather. But this time, it’s really put off… ‘til after Mardis Gras. The question is: will any of us have the stamina by then? The fight was going to be a “winter wonderland show,” complete with a Frosty the Snowman. Sorry Frosty, but we hope you’ll melt before Mardis Gras begins.


Fight Night Price Hike


By Shay Shokol

UPDATED: The Fights have been moved to Feb 11 on account of inclement weather (aka "the misery outside.")

It’s that time of month again. The undeniable good time known as Friday Night Fight, hosted by the Freret St. Boxing Gym, will be held tomorrow night at 4510 Freret St. But instead of paying $15 at the door to join the pit of people pumping beer kegs and begging for blood, this time you’ll have to cough up $20. You may still get a ticket for $15 in advance by going to the gym and talking to Mike, or calling the host Kevin Jambon at 504.512.4542.
