Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater hosted a sell-out crowd on Friday evening, April 20, 2018, for the first Annual Ring Masters Championships organized by U.S.A. Boxing Metro and Madison Square Garden. The evening of championship amateur boxing featured twenty-four bouts representing winning athletes who earned their place on the card through their performance in the Metropolitan Qualifiers conducted over the course of the prior two months throughout the New York metropolitan region by U.S.A. Boxing Metro. The forty-eight participants competing in the MSG Ring Masters Championships, representing twenty-five regional boxing clubs, were narrowed down from a field of 600 athletes drawn from fifty-four clubs. Also featured was a 3 round bout between law enforcement officers of the NYPD’s Finest Boxing Team and the NYCD’s Boldest Boxing Team.
MetroSports Magazine will be releasing a special issue within the next three weeks focusing in the MSG Ring Masters Championships and featuring photographs and commentary of every bout. MetroSports Magazine had previously included a feature on the Metropolitan Qualifiers in our recently released March/April 2018 issue now available, free and online, at www.MetroSportsMag.com.
