Pro Boxing, Motorcycles on Ice Coming to Hirsch [VIDEO]
Shreveport Mudbugs Hockey General Manager Scott Muscutt talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about two major upcoming events. On Friday, January 31, Hirsch will play host to a nine-bout professional boxing card, with three of the fights televised live on Showtime.
Then on Saturday night, Hirsch will welcome "the fastest sport on ice," Xtreme International Ice Racing, motorcycles racing on the George's Pond ice at speeds up to 60 miles per hour.
Bishop Promotions, along with Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing have put together the Showtime deal. Bishop boss Amber Bishop is one of the country's few, but most successful, boxing and mixed martial arts promoters.
And X-treme International Ice Racing? It's described on their website as, "man and machine going from 0-60mph in under 3 seconds! There are over 2000 metal studs added to the tires and there are NO BRAKES! It is THE fastest sport on ice and one of the fastest sports in the world."
