Westin Hotel, Los Angeles: Today at noon, IBF Flyweight Champion, Donnie Nietes formally met his challenger from Argentina, Juan Carlos Reveco at the final presscon held at this fancy hotel near the LA Airport.
Tom Loeffer’s 360 Promotions, HBO and their partners put together the final presscon, a tradition for big time boxing. Not be out done by other events like these that are put up by Top Rank and GBP Boxing, 360 Promotions served a fine luncheon to the delight of the many media people that attended the event. The only negative about the whole event was the fact that parking at the Westin cost an arm and a leg - $38.50 for three hours!
All the boxers on the televised portion of the fight card were introduced to the crowd as well as Brian Viloria and ArteM Dalakian who tangles for the WBA Flyweight belt. Their fight will only be seen lived streamed on Ring TV and not on HBO.
The event was the first occasion each fighter formally met his opponent. What was wholesome was the fact that all those who spoke were respectful and kind of low key giving the media the sense that the fighters will just do their stuff in the ring. There was none of the four-letter word that is famously spoken in other big events where boastful fighters are involved.
Below are select one-liners from people that matter:
Tom Loeffer (360 Promotions) – “All the undercards will be seen on RingTV to give everyone a chance to see the fighters not featured on HBO.”
Donnie Nietes: “I waited so long for this opportunity. Just watch the fight and see how the snake strikes.”
JC Reveco: “I am happy to be here with the rest of the best in my division.”
