🏟 LIVE REVIEW--🏟 COMBAT ZONE 75 --3/17/2022

Combat Zone is back tonight with their 75th installment.  They have a total of 9 matches in which 5 of them are professional bouts.  The first fight is set to start around 7pm so keep refreshing this article to keep up with all the action.  Tickets should still be available at the Encore Boston Harbor venue.  If you want to watch from home here is the link.  Warchild and I made our way to the casino and went up the elevator.  If you have never been to this casino then you are missing out.  It is very elegant and simply breathtaking.  We found our way to our media seats and we have a perfect view so we should be able to not miss any of the action tonight.  Combat Zone has a brand new cage and it looks awesome.  It has a platform around the outside and the sound system in the Picasso Ballroom is top notch.  The room also has 2 large screens so there is no way anyone will miss the action.  The judges for the night are Dave Ginsberg,  Steve Rita and Alan Lau.  The refs are Bryan Minor and Kevin Macdonald.  The fights should be starting around 7pm so stay right here as I recap the night.
