Ray Flores Reports – This Saturday, November 12th sees the Premier Boxing Champions back on SpikeTV, and Friday evening saw the weigh-ins go down.
The live fights are at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the live event features nine fights in total. The fights are also set to air in Mexico on Televisa and an International broadcast in English is also set to air featuring our own Ray Flores working the match play-by-play solo. Check local listings for start times.
The weigh-ins were attended by a slew of Philadelphia press as local hero and WBC World welterweight champion Danny Garcia (32-0) returns to his hometown to fight for the first time since October of 2010. Garcia will be facing the challenge of unsung but hungry Samuel Vargas (25-2-1).
Two additional 10-round bouts are scheduled for the PBC on SpikeTV Broadcast as Javier Fortuna (30-1-1) meets Omar Douglas (17-0) at a catchweight of 133 pounds and super welterweights Jarrett Hurd (18-0) and Ionut Dan Ion (35-3) collide.
