As the weather heats up, the popular series LA FIGHT CLUB continues to prove month-after-month why it is the hottest place for boxing in Los Angeles as the sure-fire ‘Fight of The Year’ candidate between Jesus “Renuente” Soto Karass (28-10-3, 18 KOs) and Yoshihiro “El Maestrito” Kamegai (26-3-1, 23 KOs) featured on the April 15 edition of LA FIGHT CLUB is officially sold out. Live from the Belasco Theater and on Boxeo Estelaron Estrella TV, the series has consistently featured sold-out and near sell-out shows every month in 2016.
As a treat for all local fight fans, Golden Boy Promotions has announced today, the new summer dates for LA FIGHT CLUB. First, WBC Silver Featherweight Champion Ronny Rios (25-1, 10 KOs) of Santa Ana, Calif. will kick off the summer season on June 3. The fan friendly action continues all summer on July 1, August 5, August 19, September 2, and October 7. Tickets for all shows are on sale with special multi-fight and group ticket discounts available.
“Whether it’s aggressive veterans slugging it out for one last possible title shot or young and hungry prospect looking to move up the ladder, LA FIGHT CLUB delivers high-action fights each and every month,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “When Golden Boy launched this series in March of last year, we knew it would be popular, but as we sell out show after show, it’s clear that local fans are hungry for even more.”
Launched in March of 2015, LA FIGHT CLUB has been thrilling fans in the Southern California area for the past year, along with those tuning in worldwide on Estrella TV and the Ring TV live stream. The series has established a standard of delivering action-packed fights featuring some of the most talented fighters in the sport, which includes Joseph “Jojo” Diaz Jr., Diego De La Hoya, Manuel “Tino” Avila, Nick Arce, Christian “Chimpa” Gonzalez, Roy “Pitbull” Tapia, Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez, Abraham “Chamaco” Lopez, Hector “El Finito” Tanajara and Patrick Teixeira, just to name a few. Golden Boy plans on upping the ante this summer following a first quarter that saw the series sell out the Belasco Theater.
