About the Show
World Championship Boxing returns to the Theater at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, June 11th on the eve of the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade! In the main event, three-time world champion ROMAN “ROCKY” MARTINEZ (29-2-3, 17 KOs) and WBO featherweight world champion VASYL LOMACHENKO (5-1, 3 KOs) face-off for Martinez’s WBO junior lightweight world championship.
The 2008 and 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Lomachenko from Ukraine is widely considered to be one of the greatest amateur boxers of all time, and captured a world title in only his third professional bout.
