The Hawthorne Race Course is located at 35th and Laramie, just minutes from both the Stevenson and Eisenhower expressways. Doors for this internationally televised event open at 6pm, with the first bell at 7pm. Tickets, starting at $25 are available now by calling 312-226-5800. For this event, the very spacious second floor ballroom at the Hawthorne Race Course will be used to allow for the expected large audience.
Headlining the action packed card is a ten round welterweight bout between former WBC Lightweight Champion, Cesar Bazan, 43-6-1 (29KO's) of Mexico City, Mexico and rugged veteran Francisco Campos, 17-1-1 (9KO's) of Cartago, Costa Rica. Bazan returns to Chicago following his appearance in February of this year, a fight shortened by his opponent Roberto Ortega's continual low blows resulting in a second round disqualification win for Bazan in front of 3,500 fight fans at the sold out De Paul Athletic Center.
Said Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions, "the last time Cesar was here, we had some fans who were left out to due us reaching capacity at De Paul. I'd advise fans to contact me as early as possible for tickets to avoid being left out. We're moving this event to the upstairs ballroom at Hawthorne which should enable us to handle the huge crowds which are expected. This past Friday's event was terrific but we need more room for this show. About Bazan, Pesoli added, "he was disappointed the last Chicago fight was stopped early and he told me he's looking to put on a great show for his large Chicago following."
Speaking about the co-main event featuring Chicago favorite "Macho" Miguel Hernandez, 13-1 (8KO's) Dominic went on "its a great opportunity for Miguel and he's very excited about it. He looked great getting an early stoppage this past Friday, he's worked hard and been successful this whole year and is looking for a quick comeback, this gets him that plus a chance for the whole country to see him fight."
More information on this huge card will be announced shortly as 8 Count Productions continues to bring Chicagoland the finest in professional boxing.
