Ghost Town Promotions is headed to their third sell out Saturday night in Longmont, Colorado with WARRIORS CONQUEST III

WARRIORS CONQUEST III is headlined by a sensational welterweight clash between Longmont fan favorite Raul “EL Chino” Carrillo and Colorado Springs native Terry Buterbaugh. The Longmont Athletic Club is located at 10 Mountain View Avenue in Longmont, Colorado. Doors will open on the night of the event at 6:00 p.m. with the first bell at 7:00 p.m.

“We’ve happy and proud that the Longmont area has become such a hot location for boxing. The venue seats almost 1,500 and this will be our third straight sellout,” said Raul Utajara of Ghost Town Promotions. “Fans come from all over Colorado in addition to Nebraska and Wyoming.”

“Colorado has been a bit of an overlooked site in the past but we have a great amateur program which has allowed us to build first rate professional events in Longmont.”

Among the former amateur standouts competing on Saturday night are super middleweight Victor Villarreal in addition to junior middleweights Jeremy Ramos and Giovanni Merceron who will compete in a scheduled six rounder along with pro debuting featherweight Hilario Medina.

“All of these fighters were nationally recognized and successful amateurs. With our WARRIORS CONQUEST series they can stay in Colorado and fight at home.”

Continued Utajara, “It’s not easy but we truly strive to give the fans and boxers what they want. Tough competitive, evenly matched bouts.”

“Saturday night will be a terrific, fan friendly event. The third of many more to come.“
