HBO World Championship Boxing will feature a stellar tripleheader boxing card on Saturday, Nov. 9 in Corpus Christi, Texas at the American Bank Arena. The featured tripleheader card includes, Roman "Rocky" Martinez vs. Mikey Garcia in a super featherweight championship bout, Nonito Donaire vs. Victor Darchinyan, and Vanes Martirosyan vs. Demetrius Andrade in a junior middleweight championship bout. The event is being presented by Top Rank, in association with Foreman Boys Promotions.
The undercard is still in the works, but boxing fans can rest assure they will witness some great boxing. It has been 8 years since the last HBO show in Corpus Christy, and the city is excited to host this epic event according to fan reaction.
When it comes to boxing in Texas, the man who makes it happen is Lester Bedford. He has been involved in every HBO and Showtime boxing event in Texas, and many of the fights televised on other networks. It was Bedford who was instrumental in bringing Pacquiao vs. Clotty and Pacquiao vs. Margarito to Cowboys Stadium.
Lester Bedford will be a guest on the Max Boxing Radio Network's, Punches "N" Bunches Edition, this Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 9:30 a.m. PST.
