ESPN Visits Four Bears Casino and Lodge

Posted: Updated:

The events center at Four Bears Casino was filled with thousands of fans on Friday night - and it was seen by many thousands more.

Crews converged on the casino this week to set everything up for the fight, and to broadcast the fight card live on ESPN's Friday Night Fight series.

The television crew travels to cities all over the country and provides coverage like this almost every Friday.

ESPN producer Jim Zirolli says what's out of the ordinary this Friday, is the amount of crew they supplied.

(Jim Zirolli, ESPN Producer) "We actually get here on Thursday. We bring an 18 wheel semi out front. We have a truck that follows us with more of our equipment. And for this show we're traveling our entire crew. That's not what usually happens but with the location it's necessary this time. We end up with about forty to forty-five people here working on the show. And that's inside the truck and inside the building."

Zirolli also said one of the most reward parts of the job is getting to follow brave, young boxers and witness their success.
