Chino Maidana is back and will headline the Legacy Boxing Series in Dubai
On March 26th, Legacy Sports Management will launch its 2022 season with an open-air event under the warm Dubai sun.
The stellar Fight Night will take place at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium, located at the Irish Village with a total capacity of 6,000 spectators.
The highlight of the event is Legacy‘s sensation and model athlete, Cuban Mike Perez (26-3-1), who will defend his WBA Inter-Continental Cruiserweight Title. His opponent is Czech Republic #1 Cruiserweight and independent world ranked #45, Vasil Ducar (10-4-1).
Ducar has already had the privilege of boxing for a WBA Title at Wembley Arena in the UK, making him a serious opponent for Mike Perez. Perez, who is currently ranked #10 in the World Boxing Association, will be allowed to box for a world championship this year if he wins.
Another highlight of the evening is the return to the ring of former World Champion, Marcos “Chino“ Maidana (35-5-0). The boxing superstar, who fought Floyd Mayweather twice for the world championship, is celebrated in his homeland Argentina as the “Messi“ of boxing.
His opponent is a Uruguayan YouTube Star and show man with a fan base of more than 10 million followers across social media. Yao Cabrera rose to prominence by faking his own death and surfacing to life a few days after in the late 2019.
Stunt man Cabrera (24) has earned with this deed the title of the most despicable man in South America, which has allowed to him to gain more than 10 million followers on Instagram.
The two opponents will battle it out after a heated press conference in Buenos Aires that will now carry on in the ring over 6 rounds of nonstop action.
There will be a total of 9 exciting fights on the fight card, including a WBO Youth World Championship between Olympian, Brian Arreguis and the Indian, Kulbir Dhaka. Both are undefeated and both have 4-0-0 fight records.
The event is forecasted to reach over 150 million people world wide and promises to be one of the most anticipated combat events of the Americas. Ticket sales will launch on Monday February 21st for global purchases. 6,000 tickets from Ring side to silver tier ticketing will be available exclusively via platinumlist.net/ for this grand event.
