Las Vegas (September 11, 2015) – Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) has announced that several top fighters will make personal appearances at its Box Fan Expo booth (Booth 21) on Saturday, September 12th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The meet-and-greet opportunities are part of PBC’s ongoing commitment to elevating the boxing fan experience – providing all fans access to the best fights and fighters in the sport through partnerships with network partners CBS, ESPN, FS1, NBC, NBCSN, Spike, BounceTV, FOX Deportes and ESPN Deportes.
Fighters appearing at the PBC Booth will include undefeated current featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz fresh off his extraordinary 12-round slugfest victory over Abner Mares, dubbed by many as a candidate for “Fight of the Year.” He’ll be joined by undefeated welterweight champion Keith Thurman, considered by many a possible “heir apparent” to Floyd Mayweather, and his fellow welterweight star and former champion Shawn Porter. Other top names appearing in the booth include undefeated welterweight Danny Garcia, undefeated lightweight title contender Rances Barthelemy, former light middleweight champion Austin Trout and former junior welterweight world champion Josesito Lopez. A special appearance will be made by retired two-time world welterweight champion Paul Williams. Other fighters may be added to the schedule for Saturday’s Expo.
