In the co-feature, Chris “Hard Hittin’” Henry (24-2, 19 KOs) of Houston, TX survived an early shelling before going on to stop Shaun George (18-3-2, 19 KOs) of Brooklyn, NY in the sixth round of a scheduled ten round light heavyweight bout. The card was promoted by Shalyte Entertainment in association with CES Boxing, and was televised live on the ESPN2 Friday Night Fights series. (More)

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
