World-Class Professional Boxing Returns to the Rivers Casino Amphitheater on Pittsburgh’s North Shore
PITTSBURGH—Former World Super Featherweight Champion, Monty Meza-Clay returns to Rivers Casino for a night of professional boxing by the river. “War on the Shore” presented by eight time world champion, Roy Jones Jr., will feature a full card of action-packed bouts with both local and national fighters on Saturday, Aug. 13 at 7 p.m. in Rivers Casino’s amphitheater.
ROOT Sports-Pittsburgh :30 Commercial Spot
The evening’s main event features Pittsburgh’s own Monty Meza-Clay. Meza-Clay (30-3-20 KOs) returns to Rivers’ amphitheatre ring after his blistering knockout over top contender Allen “The American Boy” Litzau at last year’s “Rumble on the River.” Most recently, Meza-Clay is coming off an eight-round victory over Colombia’s Oscar Cuero.
Also included on the fight card for War on the Shore is Andres “Taylor Made” Taylor, “The Boilermaker” Billy Hutchinson, Jaque “Lights Out” Lutz, and more.
“Last year’s exciting lineup for Rumble on the River brought a sold-out crowd, and we look forward to fans coming out again for War on the Shore,” said Matt Stewart, Director of Marketing at Rivers Casino. “With Meza-Clay and the other competitors on the card and given our outdoor venue, this is sure to be the boxing event to attend in Pittsburgh.”
A Rankin native, Meza-Clay helped fuel excitement for the upcoming fight in the ‘Burgh by throwing out the first pitch at Friday’s Pirates vs. Cubs game.
* Rivers will hold a FREE weigh-in party with all the boxers, hosted by Roy Jones Jr., on Friday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Wheelhouse Bar and Grill.
