I rarely use this blog to promote local events as many readers visit the site from various countries. I would like to mention an upcoming show however that will take place May 5th at the Mohegan Sun Casino. On that night, several local professional boxers will be featured on a six fight card. Among those fighting will be lightweight prospect Chip Perez. I train Chip and will be working his corner that night. If you live in the area, I encourage you to check out the show. I will be around all night so come on down and say hello.
Following the live fights, you will also be able to watch the Mayweather vs. Cotto and Canelo vs. Mosley pay-per-view fights on the big screen within the Mohegan Sun Arena. The PPV show will be free to everyone with a fight ticket. Tickets are available for $35 (less than the cost of PPV if you order from home).
As for the upcoming Mayweather vs. Cotto fight, a promotional video courtesy of Gorilla Productions can be seen below.
I hope to see some of you at the show!
