For the first time in three years, Friday Night Fights returned to Electhcester on May 20. The Sportsmen’s Club partnered with USA Boxing to transform the auditorium of the Electrical Industry Center into a boxing arena.
It was a packed house for a special night. Between the fights, Business Representative John Baker was awarded “Sportsman of the Year” and Jeff Mansmann was awarded “Rank & File Sportsman of the Year.” Business Manager Christopher Erikson and Congressman Tom Suozzi, Local 3’s endorsed candidate for Governor, also spoke to the audience in between bouts. The winners will go on to fight in the USA Boxing Metro tournament at Madison Square Garden.
Congratulations to the honorees, and thank you to everyone who volunteered before, during, and after to make this event possible once again. Click here to see a video that played during the event.
