Yesterday, the fighters for Atlanta’s Corporate Fight Night 13 were on hand at the Atlanta Buckhead Mariott for the event’s weigh-in.

The premise for CFN takes white-collar professionals, students and blue-collar workers alike through a full fight camp before competing in an amateur bout for the charity Open Hands Atlanta. The card will have 14 bouts taking place in over 3 two-minute rounds.

Founded in 1988, Open Hands Atlanta packs and delivers over 5,500 meals daily to the homebound elderly, HIV/AIDS patients and those suffering from critical illnesses.  All money raised from the event will go towards the non-profit.

The main event for CFN 13 will is intellectual and litigation attorney David Lilenfield taking on Eli Flint, VP of sales and corporate solutions for FlexJet. Both have put in at least 10 weeks of work for event. The co-main pits three-time CFN participator and CDC public works researher Lisa “Bad Company” Belcher against neurologist Sara “The Rock Doc” Shuler.

One constant I heard from the fighters was how transformative the boxing training was. Many dropped upwards of 30 pounds from training and eating right. And like many professional fighters, most were looking forward to a good meal after making weight.

Those in the Atlanta area purchase tickets at the door from the Southern Exchange Ballrooms, located at 200 Peachtree St. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the first bell at 7 p.m. This is a black-tie event.

Check back here shortly for streaming information.
