July 15th, 2014 Chicago's Boxing community came out in great numbers to welcome and cheer on their Boxing Champions. Floyd Mayweather (46 and O, 26 KO's and Marcos Maidana (35-4,31 KO's) came to Chi-town to promote their upcoming September 13th 2014 PPV match from the MGM Grand.
Here's what the day held for me ...and the Chi-town boxing fans. For the Chicago fans that had to wait an extra hour or so for their Champions to show up at the Auditorium, be glad you weren't at the Washington DC Presser, they had to wait over four hours till past Midnight. No fault of the tour, Mayweather and Maidana were sitting on a tarmac waiting for a severe thunderstorm to pass over.
Next stop for the "tour" is tonight in San Antonio and then July 17th in Los Angeles...
Next week its the Weigh-In on Thursday July 24th in preparation for the UIC Pavilion matches on Friday July 25th ....If you need any information regarding those matches give me a text or call at 630-258 8930.
