The City of Broken Arrow’s arts and entertainment district is once again poised to be the scene for an international broadcast of live boxing.

Rumble in the Rose District is back in the heart of downtown Broken Arrow on Friday, September 24, 2021, with live coverage on Showtime Sports’ broadcast of ShoBox: The New Generation. The first Rumble in the Rose District premiered with seven fights to a sold-out crowd in August 2019.

“I am incredibly excited that Rumble in the Rose District is returning to downtown Broken Arrow this year,” said Mayor Debra Wimpee. “Broken Arrowans already know how wonderful this area is, but now, with the live coverage of these outdoor boxing matches, we have an opportunity to showcase the Rose District and all that it offers to a worldwide audience.”

The 20’ by 20’ feet ring will be staged near the intersection of Main and Commercial, and surrounded by lighting ballasts, VIP and General Admission seating, cameras, announcers, fight statisticians and more.

Seating will begin at 5 p.m. and Showtime will begin live coverage of three bouts, including the Main Event, to a global audience at 9:35 p.m. The fight card will be announced on a later date.

Tickets are available through

In the event of inclement weather, Rumble in the Rose District will relocate to Central Park Community Center at 1500 South Main Street.

ShoBox: The New Generation is in its 20th year and is boxing’s premiere proving ground for top prospects determined to fight for a world title. More than 75 ShoBox fighters have become world champions.
