The Ticket's Fight Night in Action Shots

The thing that really stood out at the Ticket's Fight Night yesterday was that these were definitely amateurs in the ring. Bout after bout would start in a flurry of punches and a burst of energy, only to quickly turn into a lethargic affair of tired legs and weak punches.

This did not matter to the legions of Ticket P1s who overran the Village Country Club, and the thousands of loyal Ticket fans who liberally imbibed the Corona Light that was available and cheered on each fighter with a bloodlust usually saved for Cowboys games.

Below are the best of Mike Brooks' high-octane photos from the evening, with appropriate boxing commentary from Gavin Cleaver. You can also look at the rest of the photos, with bloodied noses and ring babes, in our huge slideshow from Fight Night.
