Top NJ Amateur Fighters Invade The Paramus Elks Club

PARAMUS, NJ — A number of New Jersey’s finest amateur fighters will put their pugilistic talents on display during a one-night show on Saturday, June 15, at the Paramus Elks Club in Paramus, NJ.

Brought to the masses by Mike Rizzo of the Loyalty Boxing Club (LBC) Sports Management team, the event, nicknamed the “Summer Showdown,” will be a sanctioned amateur event featuring the best of the Garden State’s young talent.

Rizzo, a long-time trainer and veteran of the fight game, has spent months planning the event, and said that it’s important to remember that in the end, these shows are all about the kids who are stepping through the ropes. Many, he said, are using boxing in the same way so many have before them have: as a way out. As a result, it’s critical that the events get the support they need from the public.

 “Boxing gives these kids confidence, it gives them an outlet so they can stay on a positive path and develop future goals that are worth having,” he said. “These shows are the avenue for those goals. If people don’t support them, it gets difficult to keep it all going.”

The show will take place at the Paramus Elks Club, located at 201 Route 17 North in Paramus, NJ. Doors open at 6 p.m., fights start at 7. Food concessions and a cash bar available.

Tickets are $25 at the door for adults, $10 for kids 10 years-old and younger.

To purchase tickets, or for more information, call Mike Rizzo at 201-638-2613.
