Woodland’s Friday Night Fights, and the Legacy Lives On
1 Min Read
It’s a warm late-June Friday night in Woodland, where a cozy community gym and a full card of pro boxers equals another success for a couple of longtime local promoters–Paco Presents and Don Chargin Productions.
The demise of boxing has been reportedly imminent for decades, but this part of the American sports scene, it’s safe to say, still thrives in small town venues like Woodland’s Community Center. Here, on June 23, ten boxers each with their own unique stories from California towns like Sacramento, Vacaville, Fairfield, and Vallejo, put on a show before an enthusiastic capacity crowd.
The story is best told through the images of the night, where Friday Night Fights in Woodland, a true piece of Americana, lives on.
