Wow, wow, wow!
That is all I can say about last night's Fight Night. It was a fantastic evening and judging from the way my head feels this morning - it is on a par with that Channel Awards next day feeling.
I have to admit I was a little worried about how the evening would pan out - but there was absolutely no need for me to have worried at all - the atmosphere in the room was electric and the fights were amazing to watch - it is clear that our 16 fighters had put their heart and soul into training for the event and I am now a boxing convert.
There were a few shiners doled out on the evening - but the fighters all wore them like a badge of pride and rightly so. They were all true warriors.
CRN is a very proud team indeed today. Keep your eye on the www.crnfightnight.com site - a video of the evening will be on there very soon to relive those bouts and catch what you missed.
Thanks again to Burf and his team at City Boxer for putting on such a superb event and for all their help and support - it is certainly going to be the talk of the channel for a while.
The evening itself finished about 1pm - but a band of hardened channel veterens and the CRN team headed on to the nearby Bedouin Bar to party until the early hours. Part of me is regretting that now - but only a small part!
Who needs more than four hours sleep anyway?
Thanks to everyone who came along last night and gave us their support - we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. See you there next year!
