Promotional events are a great way to get customers through the door and butts in seats. Not only will you have something in your club to generate excitement, but the event itself will also give you something to promote on your social media sites in the weeks leading up to it. Boxing — specifically, major title fights with marquee names — remains one of the industry’s tried-and-true go-to’s to generate a packed house.
On August 21, one of the greatest boxers in history, Manny Pacquiao, will fight for the WBC and IBF Welterweight belts when he faces off against undefeated titleholder Errol Spence Jr. The fight is slated for T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and G&G Promotions is happy to make sure your club gets in on the action by showcasing the event live on fight night.
The 42-year-old Pacquiao, now a senator in his native Philippines, hasn’t stepped into the ring since his last victory over Keith Thurman in July 2019, a bout he won by split decision for his third consecutive victory.
At a recent news conference, Pacquiao noted that he’s taking a significant risk in returning against the undefeated Spence. Pacquiao said he could have picked “a much easier fight” for his comeback bout, but chose to take on the 147-pound champion “because I want to give a good fight to the fans. I want a real fight.”
The 31-year-old Spence will be in the ring for only the second time since October 2019, when he survived a single-car crash in which he was ejected from his Ferrari 488 Spider. He returned in December in his native Dallas area with a unanimous decision over Danny Garcia.
