The Nelson Boxing Club will host national-level fighters from across B.C. and the United States at A Night of Fights 6 on Saturday.
Nelson’s Elias Martinez, a silver medalist at this year’s nationals, will face Santiago Franco of Portland, Ore., in the main event at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club. The 15-bout card will include fighters from Nelson, Surrey, Nanaimo, Revelstoke, Cranbrook and Portland.
This is a family friendly event, and a great time for all ages. There will be home-cooked Mexican food on offer, great music, and an in-between rounds fashion show by Streetclothes Named Desire.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and can be purchased at the Nelson Boxing Club’s gym at 685 Baker St., or for $25 at the door. Tickets are also good for a discount at Finley’s Bar and Grill for the night’s after party.
