LOS ANGELES, CA, September 7, 2011 — Throughout the history of boxing, generations of family members have come together to watch the sweet science. Whether it was fathers and sons watching fights together or grandfathers buying tickets to take their grandsons to stadiums or arenas, the sport has always been a family affair. Now, with top pay-per-view events being televised live nationwide, it’s not uncommon for three generations (or more) to gather in the same room and share in the thrills of major prize fights.
This is certainly true with boxing’s massive Mexican and Mexican-American fan bases and it’s no accident that there’s a major fight card on the Saturday of Mexican Independence Day weekend every year. It’s an ideal night for bringing these families together and this year is no different with “STAR POWER: Mayweather vs. Ortiz” Saturday, Sept. 17 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as well as STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. This event will provide the kind of ultra high quality fight card from top to bottom that offers something for fans of every generation. (continue reading…)
