Watch this website for a Round-by-Round account of the next big professional boxing show in Minnesota, the February 6th “Grand Friday Night Fights” event at Grand Casino Hinckley.
The evening will showcase two rising stars of the local boxing scene, middleweight Robert Brant (13-0) and light welterweight Rondale Hubbert (8-0-1) in steppingstone bouts against live bodies Ryan Davis (24-15-3) and Gilbert Venegas (12-16-4). Also appearing on the card will be heavyweight Aaron “Gorilla” Green (15-0) in a comeback fight following an injury-related layoff and a nice matchup of former amateur standouts Brad Patraw (10-7) and Philip Adyaka (4-4).
Though I’ll be reporting from ringside, you should still buy tickets, because there is nothing in the world like a prizefight seen live. I report here for the unfortunates who can’t attend, and for the diehards who want to recap what they saw in person.
