Fort Worth, TX—The Bud Light Pro Fight 6 Christmas Boxing Bash will take place on December 20th at 7:30 PM at the Amon Carter Exhibit Hall at the landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, TX, promising to be the most action packed holiday event ever to “hit” Fort Worth.

The main event of Bud Light Pro Fight 6 will feature a Texas Super Welterweight Title fight that fans all over Texas are already calling a great fight due to the skill levels and records of both fighters. DFW’s own Texas title holder Hector “El Diamante” Vazquez (11-1) of Irving Texas will face the challenge of his life against contender Anthony Lenk (14-2) from the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas, Nevada. Lenk has victoriously fought some of the biggest boxing cards in the sport and has been trying to get a match with Vazquez for 2 years. Lenk’s only losses have been to top welterweight contender Jesse Vargas and USA Olympic team member Ricardo Williams. Similarly, Texas Title holder Vazquez’s record speaks for itself. A 2008 Olympic alternate for team Mexico, Vazquez has beaten some of the best including current world Welterweight Champion Adrien Broner.

“I can’t wait to come to Texas and take care of this thing that has been 2 years in the making. This is an early Christmas present to me,” said Lenz about the upcoming title fight.

“This is a big fight. It has been a long road here with the setbacks, but I am ready to seize the moment,” said Vazquez. “Beating Lenk will put my name on the map,” said Vazquez.
