Event to Be Rescheduled in 2022
STATEMENT FROM EVENTS DC
Events DC and the Beltway Battles team today announced that it is postponing this Saturday’s Beltway Battles: Round Three event at Entertainment & Sports Arena with plans to reschedule the professional boxing series on a 2022 date to be determined.
The decision was made after much consideration and out of respect for the Harrison and Hernandez families, as well as the DC boxing community and the general public.
Tickets from the October 1 event will be valid at the date of the rescheduled event.
There will be a time to get back to boxing, but this is the time for mourning and remembrance. We appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to working with Rising Star Promotions, DHH Promotions and Blue Cork Strategies to bring the public this world class boxing event.
