We're also honored to partner with TGB Promotions and Premier Boxing Champions for this groundbreaking announcement.
"It's known how energetic the sport of boxing is, but to be able to host Errol Spence Jr. and have him represent our city will be an unforgettable experience for all. Carlos Ocampo is a quality opponent who is also unbeaten. I admire both of you men and I look forward to watching you on June 16."
