Ring Afire

There’s no better way to end your workweek than watching a couple of highly trained professionals beat the living snot out of each other. Or is there? Nope, it’s the ultimate stress-reliever.

As part of the Friday Night Fights series at the Madison Event Center in downtown Phoenix, undefeated boxing champ Chase “Checkmate” Corbin will take on undefeated bantamweight Abel Ramos in the battle of the ages. Well, more like the battle of the month, but it could still be epic. The other main bout features the 6-0 Alexis “Beaver” Santiago, and you know how freakishly strong beavers can be. The undercard is cocked and loaded with match-ups to get your blood pumping and ready to pound one out yourself.
