at the Tank Unveils New Format for May 7 Bouts.
The best boxing in the Bay Area has a new name: 'American Metal &
Iron Fight Night at the Tank: The Next Chapter and returns on
Thursday, May 7 for its eighth season at HP Pavilion at San Jose.
"The Next Chapter" has been added to American Metal & Iron Fight
Night at the Tank to reflect the new team concept.
AM&I Fight Night at the Tank will now consist of seven four-round
bouts with at least one women's bout. All fighters will be included
in the 'You Be The Judge' contest; a way for fans to show their
support of their favorite fighter of the night. The crowd will judge
the bouts and choose their favorite boxer by round of applause. The
winning fighter will receive the AMI Cup with an extra $1,000 bonus.
The crowd will have a chance to win money of their own as $100 cash
will be given away between every bout.
Members of each team will have opportunities to add to their
pocketbooks with team bonuses. Both teams will be competing for
bonuses of $2,100 ($300 per fighter). The teams will be scored on a
point system with one point awarded per bout ending with the best of
seven. If there is a knockout, "The Quickest Knockout Award" will
garner that special fighter another $500.
