Houston, TX (October 31, 2015) Despite heavy rains and flooding in the Houston area on Friday night, local boxing fans are excited for tonight’s Premier Boxing Champions on NBCSN event at the NRG Arena.
“Friday night after the weigh-in it rained very hard causing some terrible flooding in the area,” said Mike Battah of Leija*Battah Promotions. “But we’ve had an excellent response right from the start of the promotion, boxing fans here are excited to see Houston’s Jermell Charlo in the main event against the battle tested, crafty veteran Joachim Alcine.”
“The press has also been very supportive to us at the media workouts and weigh-in this week, it’s great to see for Jermell who grew up here and was an amateur star. Plus we’ve got so many local kids on the card; Devonte Williams, Jonathan Morales, Jesse Gonzalez, Bahodir Mamadjonov, David Limerick, Tony Adeniran, Christon Edwards and two female bouts featuring Lucia Osegueda and Allison Edwards.”
Continued Battah, “I’ve promoted many huge shows in Houston over the last five years and know how passionate and loyal the local fight fans are. We look forward to an outstanding evening of fights. Doors open at 4:00 p.m. and our team is excited to see the loud and proud Houston fight fans stand up.”
