WLIW21 NEW YORK SPOTLIGHT

New York Fight Clubs

  • Aired: 06/23/2011
  • 23:10
  • Rating: NR
Jimmy Breslin and other New Yorkers reminisce about the city's once-popular fight clubs where members of rival ethnic groups and neighborhoods regularly clashed in the ring. Most of the sites where those fights were staged were torn down years ago. But the memories endure. A nostalgic look back at a slice of New York City life that has all but disappeared.
