Had a chance to take some photos of the third All-City Fight Night, “The Brawl at King’s Hall” event at Apex Art & Culture Center Saturday in Everett, Washington. It began with a weigh-in Friday night at Brooklyn Brothers Pizza on Hewitt.

Then Saturday at noon there was a youth exhibition where fighters ranging in age from pre-teen to teenagers got a chance to compete inside the cage in front of family, friends and paying spectators.

The bouts had rounds lasting from one to three minutes in length. It was pure exhibition with no winners declared and both fighters with hands raised after the fight. For some it was their first time in a ring and others a chance to fight against an opponent with equal experience.

After the youth exhibition, adult competitors returned Saturday night with bouts featuring adults in various levels of experience including two WKA sanctioned Northwest Title Matches. The Fire Performance Artist Lion Gypzi provided amazing entertainment during intermissions.

Here’s some photos of the day including a few behind the scenes, among the crowd & of the competitors. Click photo to enlarge. We hear the next All City Fight Night at Apex Art & Culture Center is scheduled for September.
