Newport Beach, CA: A new fight series is coming to San Bernardino in 2022 and its promoter has some great city memories. Orange County based fight promoter Roy Englebrecht announced today a four date fight series branded Fight Club IE will be coming to the Club Center Events venue with Opening Night set for Saturday, March 12th.
Englebrecht is no stranger to the city as he and Mark Harmon brought the San Bernardino Spirit and minor league baseball to Fiscalini Field in 1987 and shocked the baseball world by setting a Cal League attendance record in its first season.
Now Englebrecht is hoping for the same success with exciting Muay Thai action in the 1,000-seat venue located on Club Center Drive off the 10 Freeway at Waterman. Four 2022 shows, all on Saturday evenings, are set for March 12th, June 11th, August 24th, and December 10th.
“It feels great to be returning to San Bernardino, as the city holds a special place for me in my sports business,” said Englebrecht. “The community welcomed our new baseball team in 1987 with night after night of sellout crowds, and who can forget our second season when an 18 year old left handed center fielder named Ken Griffey Jr tore up Fiscalini Field and won the hearts of our fans.”
Fight Club IE shows will feature 10 bouts showcasing some of the best young amateur Muay Thai fighters, not only from the Inland Empire, but all of Southern California and all seats 2nd row and back will be reserved and sell for $50 with front row at $75 and MAT seats at $150.
Tickets to Opening Night March 12th are now available at www.socafights.com.
