POPE PROMOTIONS is bringing Night of Champions, a sensational boxing card this March 28th in Galveston, Texas at the San Louis Resort.
The Night of Champions feature undercard action from undefeated 2011 Olympic Trials Qualifier, Regis Prograis and undefeated 2011 Salvadorian National Champion Pablo Cruz action. Also on the undercard will be the highly anticipated professional debut of decorated amateur Artrimus Sartor and new-comer Jesus Gonzales.
Night of Champions also features the return of super middle weight contender Marcus "Too Much" Johnson as he returns to the ring in hopes to put his name in the hat for title contention. Johnson, who last fight was a unanimous decision loss against a very game Thomas Oosthuizen in 2012, looks to put a notch in the win column.
Co-headlining the card will be regional fan favorites the hard hitting Eugene "Mean Gene" Hill (28-1 19KO) in heavyweight action. Closing out the show in the main event will be Galveston's own former NABF and USBA Cruiserweight champion Felix "Bad News" Cora Jr. Cora who was participated on the reality show The Contender in 2008, steps into action in a WBF cruiserweight title bout. This will be Felix's first bout in his home town.
Chauncey Pope, CEO/Owner of Pope Promotions looks to have the first boxing event on the island for 2014 to be a memorable one; "We wanted to compliment the headlining events with some exciting and action packed bouts for the undercard. This is for Galveston and the south east Texas boxing fans."
