Together with co-promoter partner „Chino Maidana Promotion“ and the still young US boxing promotion „P4P Entertainment“, the organizers promise an exciting night of boxing with top-class international athletes.
The fact that youth does not necessarily mean inexperience has been impressively demonstrated by Legacy Boxing in recent months at various world championship boxing events in the major cities of the Arab Emirates and Europe. This also applies to co-promoter Chino Maidana Promotion, for whom this is also the first co-promotion event in the USA. The third promoter in Texas is the local US boxing promotion „P4P Entertainment“, which is also celebrating a premiere with its first live TV broadcast on the relevant channel ESPN Knockout and the PPV streaming platform FITE.
In sporting aspects, the aim is to continue where it began successfully with the IBF world championship victory and title defense of Fernando „Puma“ Martinez in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
