Boxing Match At Coney's Beer Island

The amateur boxing match took place at Coney Beer Garden and was presented by the NYPD and The Boxing Federation who have rented out the space for a few more matches coming up. Each event is a walloping $20.oo to view from inside. And all of that goes to the NYPD. However, we shouldn't complain because the NYPD's heavy presence is what keeps our Coney Island much safer than most people assume.

Rubys Host says:

They do 3 rounds with several fights. At midnight they were still going on. It started about 8:15. I took a bunch of shots then went to see Smokey Robinson. While walking home at about 11:30, they were just starting another round of fights
