Monday Night Boxing
Capping Barclays Center’s One Year Anniversary celebration, Brooklyn’s own undefeated welterweight and 2008 U.S. Olympian Sadam “World Kid” Ali makes his Golden Boy Promotions debut against “Smokin” Jay Krupp when he headlines the latest edition of Golden Boy Live! on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes (9PM ET/6PM PT) at Cushman & Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center on Monday, September 30.
Co-headlining the event is Newark, New Jersey’s Michael “The Artist” Perez, who looks to capture the currently vacant WBA Fedelatin Super Lightweight title when he battles Miguel Zuniga.
Rounding out the remaining undercard is a mixture of exciting local and up-and-coming fighters including 2012 U.S. Olympian Marcus Browne, Emmanuel Gonzalez, Claude Staten Jr. and D’Mitrius Ballard, all of whom are looking to further their reputations in the fight game.
But for those who can’t wait for Monday night, Brooklyn’s largest street fair, the Atlantic Antic (Atlantic Ave., bet. Hicks St. and 4th Ave., 12-6pm), will bring together six of New York’s most celebrated fighters on September 29 to sign autographs and meet fans. Scheduled to appear are:
- Sadam Ali
- Paulie Malignaggi
- Danny Jacobs
- Michael Perez
- Claude Staten, Jr.

Synonymous with classic boxing coverage, the New York Daily News will lend its muscle to Monday Night Boxing by presenting Brooklyn Boxing Fan Appreciation Night where those who missed the Atlantic Antic festivities can rub elbows with several more of boxing’s biggest stars. Making an appearance on the Barclays Center concourse will be:
- Danny Jacobs
