BROOKLYN (Aug. 24, 2015) – – Broadcast and digital television information is now available for the Tuesday, Aug. 25 Brooklyn Brawl, announced by boxing champion-turned promoter Dmitriy Salita. ESPN3 will carry the event live from 8-11 p.m. via its multiscreen network, available to 99 million households nationwide. Meanwhile, the highly-anticipated Boxing At The Beach event is also scheduled to be available to more than 10 million broadcast households, re-airing during the month of Sept. courtesy of MSG Networks.

MCU Park in Coney Island hosts the exciting event on Tuesday. Gates open at 6 p.m. with two preliminary bouts scheduled for 7 p.m., lasting four rounds apiece. ESPN3 will have live coverage at 8 p.m. as “Brooklyn Brawl: Boxing At The Beach” brings pro boxing to the Coney Island boardwalk for the first time in 14 years.

“Live coverage on ESPN3 will be tremendous exposure for boxing in New York City, and for the Brooklyn Brawl series,” said Salita. “I am grateful that the talented boxers under my banner will appear live before a national audience. I grew up watching boxing on ESPN and am very honored to be promoting a show on ESPN3.”
