May 16, 2013 by James
A boxing bout is due to take place next month between Mikey Garcia and Juan Manuel ‘Juanma’ Lopez. The big fight will be held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas Texas, televised on HBO Boxing After Dark.
Garcia is the featherweight champion of the World Boxing Organization, while Lopez is formerly a two-division world champion. The event will be televised live for the first time by HBO from the American Airlines Center.
Between the boxers, they boast a record of 64- 2 (56 KOs ), with 97% of matches won and 87.5% due to a knock out. The tickets for the fight went on sale on Saturday May 11, priced from $25 to $200.
According to the president of Top Rank, Todd duBoef, Garcia will be facing one of the toughest boxers in the division during the fight. He added that Lopez is a two-time world champion and Garcia will have to work hard to prove he can retain his title. The senior vice president of HBO Sports believes that the boxing match is one that shouldnot be missed. He added that Dallas is an excellent destination for sports and HBO Sports was looking forward to visiting the American Airlines Center.
Although the event will no doubt be a sell-out, the promoters may require the banner printing services of a local print company, in preparation for the big night on June 15. Flyer printing and other printing services may also be needed to raise awareness of the event.
