Firstly, in case you missed ARES Fight Night 8 last Saturday (best local boxing card top to bottom I’ve ever seen in person), select fights and highlights are going to be aired on Time Warner Cable Channel 4 on Saturday with commentators WTEN sports anchor Dan Murphy and Ring Magazine columnist and Troy Record boxing analyst Mike Rivest. It airs from 8:00pm until 9:30pm. Tune in and watch people punch each other in the face before you go out, get drunk, and watch people punch each other in the face (with far less prowess).

I covered the event for the Knick Ledger:
Count ‘Em Up, Shawn: Troy brawler scores fourth knockout at ARES Fight Night 8 in Albany

I also posted full results and analysis over on the Mixed Marshall Arts blog:
Full results for @ARESpromotions Fight Night 8 at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center

For other takes, check out coverage from The Hudsonian (page 5) and Michael Rivest’s feature story for the Troy Record.
