Part 3 of a Three-Part Series

Roy Jones Jr's Square Ring in conjunction with TNT Sports Promotions and the Rivers Casino are bringing boxing back to Pittsburgh this weekend. Friday night weigh-in's and autograph session and Saturday night the Rumble on the River under the stars of the outdoor amphitheater.

'TNT Sports Promotions' is a tri-state area sports promotions company headed up by husband and wife Troy and Tammy Ridgley.

Tammy and Troy have known boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. for over 14 years and this friendship has lead to a business relationship that promotes boxing, MMA and an upcoming clothing line.

We were able to catch up with Troy Ridgley for a phone interview. Talking points included teaming up with Roy Jones Jr., the local 154 Boilermakers, the local Pittsburgh fighters on the card/Bill Hutchinson, Troy's Football career that started at Ambridge High School, then Notre Dame and included 8 years in the NFL, the setup at the Rivers Casino Amphitheater, Friday Night Weigh-in's and Roy Jones Jr's "True Legacy Clothing" Line.
