Battle of the Badges Fighters Weigh-In

Shreveport Police will trade in their crisp blue suits for a pair of boxing trunks, and the Bossier City Firefighters will put away their helmuts to don a pair of boxing gloves. They'll fight each other in the third annual Battle of The Badges. Which are enough years to foster plenty of competitive bad blood between cops and firefighters. Last year the fire department won, so this year the cops are out for revenge. The "vegas style" event featured an official weigh-in today (Friday) at Sams Town Casino,  where the 22 fighters got to size each other up for tomorrow night's big battle. Bossier City Firefighter, Chad Presley says it was a pretty laid back event, and has no hard feelings towards his cop competitors, however he does predict another win over them. Police, of course are convinced otherwise, and even consider themselves as the more highly evolved first responders. The Battle will take place at Sams Town this Saturday night at 7pm. Tickets can be purchased at Harley Davidson Dealerships in Shreveport and Bossier.
