Muay Thai Returns to The Theater at Madison Square Garden Tomorrow Night -- Weigh-In Tonight


Looking forward to another great night of Muay Thai at The Theater at MSG tomorrow night.  Official Weigh-in is tonight at the Theater Lobby at MSG.

The first event at MSG, promoted by TaKe On Productions, was awesome and filled up the Theater.  Look forward to seeing you there.  Tickets are still available and start at $35 and can be purchased at www.THEATERATMSG.com, all Ticketmaster locations, the Garden box office, and at Muay Thai and MMA gyms throughout NY, NJ, and PA. TaKe On VIP ticket packages will also be available via www.TakeOnProductions.com, along with the full fight card, fighter information, and other exciting content.


 Here is the press release with the full fight card:

“MUAY THAI AT THE MECCA 2”
OFFICIAL WEIGH-IN
TODAY – November 9 at 7:00 P.M. ET
The Theater Lobby at Madison Square Garden

All fighters participating in “Muay Thai at the Mecca 2” will step on the scale for their Official Weigh-In Tomorrow – November 9 in the Theater Lobby at Madison Square Garden. TaKe On Productions in association with MSG Sports present “Muay Thai at the Mecca 2”, a professional and amateur Muay Thai kickboxing event set for Saturday, November 10 from The Theater at Madison Square Garden.

Tickets start at just $35 and can be purchased at www.THEATERATMSG.com , all Ticketmaster locations, the Garden box office, and at Muay Thai and MMA gyms throughout NY, NJ, and PA. TaKe On VIP ticket packages will also be available via www.TakeOnProductions.com, along with the full fight card, fighter information, and other exciting content.

“Muay Thai at the Mecca 2”, will feature an explosive thirteen bout card including a main event featuring #1 ranked U.S. fighter and WBC Champion Chike Lindsay (15-4 [Bangkok Boxing, GA]) will face Cyrus “Black Dynamite” Washington (50 wins, 48 KO’s), arguably North America’s most exciting Muay Thai fighter. Washington, now fighting out of Long Island’s Militia Fight Academy, spent years as a professional fighter living and training in Thailand. He has defeated many international superstars, and is looking to build his fame on his native land. Lindsay looks to stay on the winning path after an impressive win over Thailand's Malaipet Sasiprapa, which elevated his ranking from #3 to #1.

In the Co-Main Event of the evening, Knockout Artist/Arab Boxing World Champion Eddie Martinez (27-4-1 [Sitan Gym CT]) will face internationally ranked Italian fighter Angelo Campoli (22-7 [Milan Italy]). Martinez recently won a world title at the Arab Boxing World Championship in Dubai with a seventh-round knockout of Russia's Illman Arskahanov, and he also holds the TaKe-On record for most Knockouts via head-kick. Campoli recently fought on the Yokkao Extreme event in Milan, Italy against Thai sensation Imwiset Pornnarai where he took a narrow decision loss.

The first-ever “K-1 Rules” fight in TaKe-On history will be a highly anticipated rematch between UFC Veteran Ryan "The Lion' Madigan (27-6-1 [Evolve MMA Ohio]) and Tarek "The Tiger" Rached (26-3{AFC Kickboxing]). Tarek scored a close victory the first time the two met, and Ryan is coming off an impressive TKO victory over Rigel Balsamico in the Main Event of the inaugural "Muay Thai at the Mecca".
