Friday Night Throwdown is an underground boxing event in NYC. It happens twice a year during Fashion Week, where male models, punk kids, young bloods and what looks like friendly bears fight other NYC locals that wind up in and out of Rikers.
It’s a lot of fun.
That said, this was probably the sloppiest one to date. Shit was like a videogame with all the superman punches, it seemed as if it was going to solely be haymakers and prayers for a connection that night.
That is until the main event, when our SUPERCHIEF sponsored boxer “RAGE” got into the ring and “lo, did the cheap shots and cold cocks rain down upon the challenger”.
This is the 2nd event that we documented, the first film made its way to a film festival in Berlin. I’d provide a link, but why make things complicated, here you go:
We just filmed the 3rd one a few days ago, and it was FANTASTIC.
It’s like everyone showed up and knew how to fight all of a sudden.
(cant wait to show you.)
