PHOENIX – Event organizers have scheduled two days of prehistoric entertainment with dinosaurs battling for the win in a Glendale boxing ring later this year.

The fourth Jurassic Fight Night will take place at Gila River Arena on Oct. 8 and 9 and will feature numerous dinosaurs in a boxing ring.

Hosted by Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs, this year’s event will be the first to include the debut of the new women’s division, Diva Dinos, organizers said.

There will be three fights, each including three two-minute rounds.

There are at last eight dinosaurs competing to determine who’s at the top of the dinosaur food-chain, including the “Blue Lighting” velociraptor, Steve “The Spine Crusher” Spinosaurus and Stiggy “The Skull Basher” Stygimoloch.

The arena debut will be the largest Jurassic Fight Night to take place since the event launched in 2018, event organizers said.

Tickets can be purchased online.
