Bigger Than Life Entertainment and Mo Entertainment are excited to launch a dynamic partnership with six-time World Champion Miguel Cotto and Miguel Cotto Promotions during the Making A Champ Series – World Championship Boxing.
The first collaboration, being televised live on CBS Sports, will debut June 22 at 7 p.m. in Cleveland at CSU’s Wolstein Center and will include an international fight card featuring Froilan Saludar (30-3) of the Philippines and USA’s Dewayne Beamon (16-1) clashing for the 115-pound title. Canadian Super Welterweight Cody Crowley (17-0) will go toe-to-toe with Irishman Alfredo Meli (16-0) from England for the 154-pound title and Cotto Promotions’ own Jose Martinez (20-1) from Puerto Rico will be featured in a Super Flyweight bout.
“Working with the former champ and his promotions team is a great honor,” said E Jay Mathews, CEO of Bigger Than Life Entertainment. “We have aligned our team to present world-class boxing across the globe and partnering with Miguel allows us to better position ourselves with brands across diverse categories.”
Bringing more excitement to the evening and surrounded by the home crowd is Cleveland’s own undefeated Isaiah Steen (12-0) and Miguel Angel Gonzalez (24-4), who will both fight in their respective divisions.
Ray Leonard Jr., son of six-time world champion, Sugar Ray Leonard, along with actor and television host, Chris Spencer, will be commentating during the event while world renowned clothing designer, Karl Kani, in partnership with the MAC Series, will be providing outfits for the ring girls.
