Cloud-Erdei, Ramos-Rigodeaux Tickets On Sale 11/26

Fans looking to celebrate the New Year in perhaps the biggest, most significant fight card in the history of Orange County, Calif. - and the first at Anaheim Convention Center in nearly 32 years -- will have the opportunity to reserve their seats beginning this Saturday, Nov. 26, when tickets for a Dec. 31 World Championship Doubleheader go on sale.
 
Tickets for what will be an exciting and memorable event co-promoted by Don King Productions and Goossen Tutor Promotions are priced at $25, $50, $75, $125 (VIP) and $175 (Gold Circle) and will be available at all Ticketmaster locations, online at www.ticketmaster.com and the Anaheim Convention Box Office. The live card begins at 4 p.m. PT with the Ramos-Rigondeaux bout at 6 p.m. and the main event, Cloud-Erdei, immediately after.
 
The Gold Circle and VIP seating above will be available on the floor at ringside in the unique setting of round tablecloth tables that seat 10 people.  In addition to the event tickets, Don King Productions and Goossen Tutor are hosting a Private New Year's Eve Party at the Hilton Anaheim (next door to the arena) after the fights with dinner, music and dancing for an additional cost per ticket. 
 
Tickets for both the Championship Doubleheader event and the New Year's Eve party are $350 for Gold Circle table tickets and $250 for VIP table seating.   
 
The World Championship Doubleheader features four undefeated fighters with a combined record of 85-0 with 54 knockouts.
 
In the main event, International Boxing Federation (IBF) light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud(23-0, 19 KOs), of Tallahassee, Fla., will make his fourth title defense against former World Boxing Organization (WBO) 175-pound kingpin Zsolt Erdei (33-0, 18 KOs), of Budapest, Hungary.
 
World Boxing Association (WBA) super bantamweight champion Rico Ramos (20-0, 11 KOs), of Whittier, Calif., will risk his belt for the first time when he faces the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games Gold Medalist and current World Boxing Association (WBA) interim champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (8-0, 6 KOs), of Miami, Fla., by way of Cuba.
 
This will be the first major boxing event at Anaheim Convention Center since Carlos "Sugar" De Leon scored a first-round knockout over Waldemar Paulino in a WBC cruiserweight eliminator on April 25, 1980.  Former world champion Rafael "Bazooka'' Limon also appeared on the card.
 
Popular Southern California light heavyweight Jesse Burnett highlighted the last event at Anaheim Convention Center on Dec. 3, 1980. Burnett also headlined on July 15, 1980, at the historic venue. Southland heavyweight John "The All American Boy'' Ellis also appeared on the card.
 
There have been a total of 15 fight cards at Anaheim Convention Center. The first, on July 13, 1967, featured East Los Angeles featherweight Dwight Hawkins.
 
Those who have fought at least once at Anaheim Convention Center read like a boxing's Who's Who: Former world champions Bobby Chacon, Alfonso Zamora, Mike Weaver, Joey Olivo andRodolfo Gonzalez, and other popular fighters such as Art Hafey, Mike Quarry, Ray "Windmill'' White, Frankie Crawford, Armando Muniz, Ruben Navarro, Hedgemon Lewis and Jimmy Heair.
