"We've got a very limited number of ringside seats left; most of the front rows are gone. But the real surprise has been the number of blue collar boxing fans bringing their families out for a night at the fights. We've sold an amazing number of $50, $30 and $15 seats for this fight."
Boxing maintains a high level of popularity in "The Pelican State" and now that national promoters have begun teaming with local promotional outfits and bringing in world-class fighters, Louisiana has suddenly become a very viable option for top-level professional boxing.
Add in that former light heavyweight champion and main event participant Reggie "Sweet" Johnson has moved his base of operations and become a local celebrity and the recipe is there for a hugely successful event.
"The last thing we want to see is some kid going to his first live boxing event get turned away at the door," concludes Daigle. "We're advising everyone to get their tickets in advance to be certain they'll get a seat."
