“Back in the day, I used to drive to Philadelphia all the time to watch boxing at the Blue Horizon,” Said McWater. “The whole Philadelphia boxing scene was so special as you got to see boxing at its purest. On Friday night, I, along with everyone at the SugarHouse Casino will enjoy the fights and see two future world champions put on a display of boxing that has not been seen since the Blue Horizon days.”
