Stellar Card Brings George Foreman to Corpus Christi

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - Two world championship fights and a long-simmering grudge match will highlight an HBO boxing card on November 9th at the American Bank Center.

Unbeaten Mikey Garcia will finally get a chance at Rocky Martinez' WBO junior lightweight title and Vic Darchinyan will get a long-awaited rematch with Nonito Donaire in the top two fights on the card.

Former heavyweight champion George Foreman joined legendary promoter Bob Arum and Top Rank to co-promote the card as part of Foreman's family-based in-state promotion company.

Tickets for the fight go on sale on Friday September 20th and will be priced from $200 to $25 for what may turn out to be the best-attended professional fight card in the city's history.
