Local boxers to compete in Saratoga

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Local boxers will be competing at the Saratoga City Center Friday night.

The Saratoga City Center will host an eight-bout card Friday night featuring some of the top local boxers to come out of the Capital Region, including Troy native Shawn Miller. Miller will defend his North American Light Heavy title in the main event against Frankie “The Freight Train” Filippone.

Miller made his professional debut at the same venue in 2009.

“Being the main event is special,” miller said. “It means you’ve come a long way. You’ve worked hard. You put the hours in the gym, and you’ve done well, and that’s something that means a lot to me and I look forward to it.”

Doors open at 6 p.m. The first fight is at 7 p.m.
