Said Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions, “We’re off to a great year,
the SHOBOX event kicked it off in great style, then this past Friday with the Escalante/Hernandez fight which was outstanding and the fans were thrilled to see Oscar. My apologies to fans who were unable to purchase tickets after we sold out Friday night.”
“We’re expecting another huge crowd for our upcoming event, I know that “Ranchero” is very popular here in Chicago and I’d encourage our fans to get tickets in advance. They’re getting a chance to see fantastic fights and our huge crowds are a testimonial to that.”
