Episode #163-Justin Blair-Founder Friday Night Fights/Church Street Boxing Gym

Justin Blair, he has a very unique and interesting background: 

  • Born and raised in Queens and Manhattan.
  • Worked on a fishing boat above the arctic circle after college.
  • Left college for a year to take a survival course in Kenya - stuck around Africa for a year with a book bag full of clothes - Zaire, Congo, Camaroon, etc.
  • Caught cerebral malaria while there but came down with it in  Egypt - evacuated to Israel for medical care by the US embassy. Crazy story.
  • Founded and operated the Church St Boxing Gym in NYC in 1997 running it until 2014. Worked with everyone - Felix Trinidad, Evander      Holyfield, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Brittney Spears - lots of celebrities.
  • Founded longest running fight series in North America - Friday Night Fights, from 1997 until lFeb 2020 (Covid).
  • Started broadcasting with the UFC in 2018 from the US. That same year did a test from Thailand and in 2019 did a big deal with them to broadcast a lot more.
  • Once established in Thailand - we picked up rights to lots of other stuff - often going places without any contacts at all and literally just showing up. Including bringing my son to many of these initial forays.
