THE HARDEST HITTING BOXING EVENT IN TEXAS IS BACK FOR ITS 59TH GO AROUND!!! GET READY!!! Delivering year after year since 1960, Fite Nite remains one of the longest standing traditions at Texas State University.
The Fite Nite team will be coordinating this year’s explosive experience on Friday, April 5th, 2019 in the ballroom at Embassy Suites in San Marcos, Texas. This year’s weigh-in will take place at the Marc on the Square on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019.
Fite Nite was originally held in the old Evans Auditorium on Texas State’s West Campus. The event began as elimination-style where contestants fought one another until only one winner was left standing. Due to popularity and increased attendance, the event eventually moved to the Hays County Civic Center. Over the years, the format has evolved into what is today, a fully sanctioned amateur boxing event. After an unfortunate - and now infamous - altercation amongst the crowd of over-zealous spectators, the event was forced to move away from San Marcos in 1987. Having been held in various locations ranging from Buda to Schertz over the last 30+ years, Fite Nite was proud to move to Downtown San Marcos in 2015. The past three years we have found a home at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in San Marcos, TX and we are pleased to be returning to the venue for our fourth consecutive year.
In addition to all the great action planned, Fite Nite has had the pleasure of donating to several local charities in and around the San Marcos area such as the Hays County Food Bank.
Thank you for your interest in the 59th Annual Fite Nite. We would like to thank all of our sponsors, the local community, and the fighters. We hope you have a great time this year and will return for many more to come.
