Watching Boxing and Honoring Baseball: It's All Possible in Jacksonville-Onslow

Apr 10, 2024

On April 16th Jacksonville-Onslow Sports Commission will host its now semi-annual Coastal Bank & Trust (CB&T) Jacksonville Onslow Sports Hall of Fame ceremony followed on the 20th by the annual Marine Chevy Freedom Fight boxing event.


The CB&T Sports Hall of Fame will be held at the Sturgeon City Environmental Center on Tuesday, April 16 with a cocktail and silent auction hour from 5:00-6:00pm and the event beginning at 6:00pm. We will be inducting the classes of 2023 and 2024 (a class is selected each year but the ceremony is held on even years).

The class of 2023 is Amanda Duffy, Stephanie Rose, and the 1978 & 1979 White Oak High School Baseball Teams. The class of 2024 is Jack Brown, Jr. and Tony Marshburn. Tickets for this event (a meal is included) are on sale now at Come out and support these great people. Ticket cutoff will be Friday, April 12. Along with CB&T, Marine Chevy and Golden Corral are great supporters of this event.


Then on Saturday, April 20 at the Commons Recreation Center, we will have two sessions of exciting USA Boxing sanctioned amateur boxing (from kids up through Masters divisions) at our Marine Chevy Freedom Fight VII. One ticket gets you into both sessions! The first session will be at 2:00pm and the second at 7:00pm.

We anticipate approximately 15 bouts per session. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or at the following link in advance:

This event is in conjunction with the All-Marine Boxing Alumni and they will also hold their dinner and reunion that weekend. Along with Marine Chevy, SIA Group and MainStay Suites help us make this event possible.


We hope you will support both of these events if at all possible, so don’t wait, get your tickets today.
