Atlanta is known for many things. When it comes to entertainment, the city is always buzzing with to-do's. However, one question we haven't asked is where can we go to see a good fight.
Silverback Entertainment emerged to remedy the need to display a good ole fashioned butt whooping and its founder Frederico Jones, a former boxer chose to promote these fights when he noticed the sport was under served in Atlanta market.
So strap on your boxing gloves and brace for a fight. Fight night will host a both men and women bouts as the night builds up to the Bull-MENGOTTI main event smackdown. The home team fighters representing the red corner are hungry and ready to meet their opponents to take home a K.O. win of the night. Their motivation and rage for the opponent is likened to the eye of the tiger but the rage of a charging bull.
