Fight supporters and media gathered Thursday afternoon at a press conference for the ESPN2 “Friday Night Fights” from the historic New Daisy Theatre on Beale Street. The bout on Friday, April 16 will mark the fourth consecutive year ESPN and Prize Fight Boxing have teamed up to bring nationally broadcasted boxing to Beale Street and Memphis. Memphis sport talk radio host, Dave Woloshin, opened the press conference saying “How fitting is it that we have boxing here. I can remember back twenty-five years ago fights on Beale every Tuesday night and we now reenact that great time.”Owner of the New Daisy Theatre, Mike Glenn, has some interesting history with ESPN network.
