CRISTOPHER LOPEZ BATTLES ALEJANDRO DIAZ FOR WBC SUPER BANTAMWEIGHT REGIONAL TITLE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 IN CANCUN ON PROBOX TV

CANCUN, September 21, 2022 -- The final press conference took place today in Cancun for ProBox TV, Marquez Promotions and Pepe Gomez’ Cancun Boxing for Friday’s boxing card at the Oasis Resort. Friday’s boxing will also take place at Oasis Resort and will be streamed live on ProBox TV and the ProBox App beginning at 9:00 pm ET / 6 pm PT.

In Friday’s main event Cristopher “Pollo” Lopez (15-0-1, 10 KOs), from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, will battle Alejandro “El Conejo” Diaz (11-4-2, 6 KOs), from Mexico City, Mexico for a WBC Regional Title. Of the ten fighters on the televised portion of the card, seven are Mexicans, as that is the plan and the plan moving forward – Mexican prospects on the Mexican shows.

The opener will be the professional debut of sixteen year old phenom Tony "Lightning Junior" Curtis, trained by Roy Jones Jr.

The second Marquez Promotions event will take place November 18 also at Oasis Resort. In 2023, there will be monthly events throughout Mexico (Mexico City, Monterrey, Culiacan, Acapulco, Guadalajara) all streamed live on ProBox TV.

The full streamed card is below.

Quotes from today:

Juan Manuel Marquez: “Right now, I am very excited to be bringing ProBox TV to Mexico and promoting this card. Mexico has the best fighters in the world and is is great to be here.”

Garry Jonas, ProBox TV CEO: “It’s a lot of fun to be in a place that loves boxing. It is the second most popular sport in Mexico; they are rabid fans and as a promoter and a TV network there is no better place to be when you know the community really loves the sport. That is the thing that is striking me most about the environment here. In the US boxing is maybe the ninth most popular sport, right? We are embracing the Mexican market. Obviously, our app shows here, and we see this as a phenomenal market for us . . .potentially more lucrative than the United States itself. We are excited about being here and they open their arms to ProBox TV and Juan Manuel and Roy and Paulie. It is obviously a good situation.”

Roy Jones Jr: “Mexico is very good, and I am highly excited for the card. Tony Curtis is sixteen years old and he is turning pro on Friday night! He is from the UK and he had only ten amateur fights and he is making his pro debut. He’s got such a pro style already he didn’t need to fight as amateur anymore – so go forward - and here we are.” Roy trains Tony “Lightning Junior” Curtis.

Paulie Malignaggi: “Friday’s card looks explosive and it’s great scenery. Where boxing is beloved. This is a great place to hold a fight and Mexican’s are a rabid fan base and they love boxing.”

Pollo Lopez: “I am really happy to be here, and it is very exciting that (former) world champions will be calling my fight. This is a big step in my career fighting ProBox TV and it’s going to be a great night of fights. I know it’s going to be a tough fight and I am very prepared. I am going to be very smart in my attack and I think my intelligence in the ring will win me the fight on Friday Night.”
