At the new Puerto Vallarta Convention Center, on July 18, there will be a championship boxing event sponsored by TV Azteca Box and Zanfer Promotions.
One of the best boxers in Mexico, Marco Antonio Barrera, recently attended a press conference presented by Zanfer Promociones representative Marcelo Jeffrey, who announced that Puerto Vallarta’s new convention center will host a world championship boxing event on Saturday, July 18, 2009.
The main event of this international boxing competition, called the Consejo Mundial del Boxeo will be a match between Mexico’s Tomas Rojas, who seeks to defeat the Panamian champion, Ricardo Nuñez.
The program also touts six additional fights, including a bout between native Vallartan, Marco Antonio Nazareth, a.k.a. “El Texano,” in his second fight against Omar Chávez, the son of the legendary Julio Cesar Chávez.
Another fight that promises to be very interesting features Rodrigo Guerrero, a boxer from Mexico City whom Marco Barrera believes people should keep an eye on due to the great promise that he’s shown in previous bouts, which has earned him a place in this international competition against veteran boxer Luis Maldonado.
According to Marcelo Jeffrey of Zanfer Promociones, the Consejo Mundial del Boxeo event in Puerto Vallarta will also feature live music by various musical artists before and after the boxing matches, making this an incomparable party that will entertain more than just fight fans.
To further promote Puerto Vallarta as one of Mexico’s premier vacation destinations, this international boxing match will be nationally televised on TV Azteca, as well as on Azteca America in the US.
General Tickets are 200 and 250 pesos and Ringside are 500 and 1000 pesos, available at local outlets.
