“I love this sport and boxing fans in the live audience is what really makes the atmosphere exciting. We’re not going to let the bad economy take away from what promises to be a great championship fight between Carl Froch and Jermain Taylor. With ringside seats available for just $200, the MGM Grand Theater is the place to be on April 25,” said DBE president Lou DiBella.
Starting at $50…to an unprecedented $200 for ringside tickets, fans can check out WBC 168 lbs. world champion Froch (24-0, 19 KOs), from Nottingham, England, take on # 1 rated challenger Taylor (28-2-1, 17 KOs), of Little Rock, Arkansas, in what experts are predicting will be an all-action slugfest.
“We’re very proud to be hosting one of boxing’s hottest fights for 2009 and we’re especially pleased to make it affordable to our customers as they enjoy an extraordinary evening of entertainment at the beautiful MGM Grand Theater as well as great dining and gaming on our wonderful property,” said Joseph Jimenez, Senior Vice President of Casino Marketing for MGM Grand at Foxwoods.
Froch, 31, will be making just his second appearance in the United States. In April 2005, Froch TKO’d Henry Porros in Hollywood, CA, but otherwise has fought exclusively in the UK. Nicknamed “The Cobra,” Froch claimed the vacant WBC world championship this past December via unanimous decision over Jean Pascal in the champion’s hometown of Nottingham.
The 30-year-old Taylor shocked the boxing world in July 2005 – dethroning long-reigning undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins, followed by four successful title defenses. Most recently, “Bad Intentions” Taylor secured his WBC mandatory challenger status with a one-sided beating of former IBF 168 lbs. world champion Jeff Lacy on November 15 in Nashville, TN.
Tickets for Froch vs. Taylor and priced at $200, $100, $75 and $50. Tickets are available at www.mgmatfoxwoods.com, your local Ticket Master and MGM Grand Box Office 866-646-0649.
