Tickets are now on sale for Encore Boston Harborâ€™s second Murphys Boxing championship match on Friday, August 23, at the newly opened $2.6 billion resort. The second match is subsequent to a sold-out event on Friday, July 12, which saw more than 2,300 attendees.
â€œWe were thrilled to see such success with our inaugural Murphys Boxing match earlier this month,â€ says Robert DeSalvio, President of Encore Boston Harbor. â€œWe are so happy to bring these Las Vegas-style events to the Boston area, and weâ€™re glad to see the community responding so well. We plan to continue offering these canâ€™t-miss nights.â€
Headlining the stacked card will be Bostonâ€™s most popular fighter, Mark DeLuca (24-1, 13 KOs) who will take on undefeated Mexican knockout artist, Edgardo Velazquez (11-0, 11 KOs) in a 10-round battle for DeLucaâ€™s title. The co-main event will feature one of the hottest fighters in the super featherweight division, Murphys Boxingâ€™s own, Abraham Nova (15-0, 11 KOs) and Mexicoâ€™s Jesus Antonio Perez Campos (23-3, 18 KOs). The undercard will feature a whoâ€™s who of many other Boston-area based fighters.
â€œPeople are still buzzing about our last event at Encore Boston Harbor,â€ said Ken Casey, Murphys Boxing founder and promoter. â€œItâ€™s so exciting to be coming right back to Encore with the big guns like DeLuca, Nova and Gongora all on the same card while the excitement is still in the air.â€
