Erik Morales vs. Marcos Maidana, Winky Wright vs. Matthew Macklin, Robert  Guerrero vs. Michael  Katsidis from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and Televised Live on HBO Pay-Per-View ®

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 22) – To become a legend, you must beat a legend and on Saturday, April 9, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., six “Action Heroes” will be featured in one night of all-out action fights where every bout pits two fighters looking to prove something against each other.  The HBO Pay-Per-View televised event features Five-Time and Three-Division World Champion Erik “El Terrible” Morales taking on former WBA Interim Super Lightweight World Champion Marcos “El Chino” Maidana in the main event.  The telecast also features former Undisputed Junior Middleweight World Champion Winky Wright facing current European Middleweight Champion Matthew “Mack The Knife” Macklin as well as former World Champions Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero and Michael Katsidis “The Great” squaring off in what promises to be a slugfest.

“Given the styles, heart and determination of both fighters, Morales vs. Maidana has Fight of the Year written all over it,” said Oscar de la Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions.  “These two fighters only know one way to fight, and that’s moving forward.  Plus, we have a crossroads battle between a future Hall of Famer in Winky Wright, against a young slugger trying to make a name for himself in the U.S. in Matthew Macklin.  You can expect one of the greatest matchups of lightweights in the game today when Robert Guerrero and Michael Katsidis, two warriors who will leave everything in the ring, face each other.  I personally can’t wait to watching all three of these great fights on April 9.” (continue reading…)
