Premier Boxing Champions Hits Barclays Center

premier boxing championships tickets

Boxing fans have plenty to cheer about in the coming weeks, with a headline fight highlighting the slate. And if you act now, you can have a ringside seat for every punch on the Premier Boxing Schedule.

On Saturday, June 25 from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, current WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman will take to the ring with challenger Shawn Porter, a former IBF welterweight title-holder, to determine the WBA champion. The time for the much anticipated bout has yet to be announced, but you can claim tickets now for this can’t-miss fight. Tickets start at $51.

Thurman comes into the fight boasting a spotless 26-0 record. Among his wins are 22 by knockout. An April 2009 fight with Mexican Francisco Garcia was ruled No Contest due to an accidental clash of heads.

Thurman hasn’t fought since July 11 of last year when he retained his title by defeating American Luis Callazo in seven rounds. Renowned for his powerful punching abilities, Thurman is currently ranked second among welterweights and fifth among all weight classes of boxes.

Porter, meanwhile, is hardly a slouch. The Ohio-born fighter is 26-1-1, with 16 wins by KO. At 5 feet, 7 inches, he has a reach of 68 inches and moved to welterweight from light middleweight in 2010. Thurman last fought June 20, 2015, when he defeated Adrien Bonner in a 12-round unanimous decision contest. Porter’s only loss came Aug. 16, 2014, at the hands of United Kingdom’s Kell Brook in a 12-round bout.

The Thurman–Porter fight was originally scheduled for March 12, but it was postponed after Thurman was injured in a car accident.

Get a look at Premier Boxing Champions ticket prices and score yourself a seat to one of the biggest boxing matches of the year. Tickets are sure to go quickly, so order now and be a part of the nonstop action.

Races start as early as 10:00 AM with the Derby itself slated for a post time of 4:34 PM. After last year’s derby winner American Pharoah set the sport of horse racing on fire by getting the first Triple Crown victory in 37 years, the anticipation for this year’s Derby has race fans everywhere scrambling to get a ticket. As it stands now, Nyquist has an edge over the opponents in the current odds, coming in at 10-3 odds over the weekend before the race. Other favorites include Exaggerator and Moyhaymen, who were both at 8-1 odds the weekend before the race. Though Nyquist sits atop the board of favorites for now, Saturday’s race has been widely discussed as as wide open of a Kentucky Derby as there has been in recent memory, meaning just about any horse could conceivably make a run for the garland of roses.

The Kentucky Derby doesn’t just begin and end with horse racing. With races dating back to 1875, this is truly one of the most storied sporting traditions in American history. Between the garland of roses, the Twin Spires, and the call to post, few sporting events feature more iconic moments than the Run for the Roses. But amidst all the mint juleps, fashionable hats and southern hospitality, the Kentucky Derby has something for just about everyone.
