Fresh off a hard-fought win over the Chicago Storm last night, the Ironmen return to Prudential Center for a pair of pivotal midweek games this Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday, New Jersey will host the Detroit Ignition at 11:00 a.m. in a special business outing game before hosting the Chicago Storm in a Thursday night showdown at 7:30 p.m. Joining the Ironmen as honorary captain on Thursday will be former IBF Junior Welterweight Champion Paulie “The Magic Man” Malignaggi.
Should the Ironmen win both matches this week at home, not only would they would even their record to 6-6, but the battle for the league crown would become extremely heated. Heading into the slate of XSL matches next weekend, two wins would mean New Jersey would trail the Ignition by a single game and the Wave by 1.5 games. Both Milwaukee and Detroit play the Storm next weekend.
