Without any further ado I’m going to let Oscar give everyone the rundown on this great card we have coming up September 18th.

Oscar de la Hoya      

Thank you very much, Monica.  We are truly excited to be once again presenting the great lineup of fights.  Obviously Saturday, September 18th is a very special day for boxing.  Obviously we’ve had many events on that weekend celebrating Mexico’s Independence Day.  We told that to watching the great Chavez and watching other great Mexican champions.  Also, myself, I fought there on many occasions on this holiday, which has always been very special to me.  (continue reading…)
