What do you get when you combine a boxing match, a burlesque show, and a musical sideshow performance on a New Orleans summer night? A sexy action-packed extravaganza called Friday Night Fights; and it’s returning to Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. on July 14 for the Sexy Summer Show.
What goes down at the show?
Crowds will gather around a boxing ring outside the Friday Night Fights gym on OCH Blvd to view a series of old-school boxing fights. The fights are split into multiple matches, separated by all varieties of entertainment, including DJs, dancers, hoopers, burlesque, crowd contests, and more. The Sexy Summer Show also features a crowd-judged swimsuit contest. Any attendee who arrives wearing only a bathing suit will be eligible to win. And don’t forget: this is New Orleans. So naturally, the fights are BYOB and the only rule is to have a good time.
Read more about the spectacle in Maxim’s account of New Orleans’ “strangest and most titillating entertainment.”
Tickets are available online for $15 or can be purchased at the door for $20.
