Police and firefighters will square off in the boxing ring on Friday, Feb. 28, as the Philadelphia Blue Flame hosts the 11th annual Blue Flame Bouts at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory, Roosevelt Boulevard and Southampton Road.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the 18-bout card starting at 7:15. Admission costs $25.
Among the scheduled fights will be more than a dozen Police vs. Firefighter showdowns, as well as women’s bouts. Fighters have been training since October, some much longer, to put on a good show.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the charities of the Philadelphia Police and Fire Football Club, including Police Survivor’s Fund, Fire Widow’s Fund, Susan G. Komen Foundation, Police Athletic League, youth sports organizations, autism awareness, scholarship funds and more. ••
