“GLENDALE GLORY” Tickets Now On Sale! History To Be Made in Glendale, California
Glendale, California (April 28, 2009) – A 62-year-old ban on professional boxing in the City of Glendale, California will become history on Friday, June 12th, 2009 when Art of Boxing Promotions, in association with Bash Boxing, presents GLENDALE GLORY at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. The 7 bout fight card will be highlighted by undefeated local fighters, Dean “Irish Lightning” Byrne (10-0, 4 KOs), Art “LionHeart” Hovhannesyan (7-0-1, 2KOs), “Mad” Max Skayzer (6-0-1, 1KO), Lateef “Power” Kayode (5-0, 4KOs) and Gabriel “The Ghost” Tolmajyan (5-1, 1KO). Featured in the co-main event will be 23-year-old Heavyweight prospect Andrey “The Russian Bear” Fedosov (19-1, 15KOs) as he attempts to capture the WBC Heavyweight I/C Youth Title.
During the fall of 1947, a group of Glendale citizens petitioned to prohibit the sport of boxing citing the sport as “unwholesome” entertainment. For over 62 years, Section 5.32 of the Glendale Municipal Code banned professional boxing matches within the entire City of Glendale. But that all changed on March 17, 2009 when the Glendale City Council voted to temporarily lift the 62-year-old ban and allow a trial period for a boxing event at the Glendale Civic Auditorium.
The historic decision to revisit and revise Glendale’s long-standing prohibition on boxing in Glendale was brought about by a determined and persistent Kahren Harutyunyan, a lifelong resident of Glendale and a former NABO Champion, along with local fighters, trainers, managers, promoters, and concerned citizens who repeatedly stood before the Glendale City Council and asked for change. For the first time in over 60 years, boxing fans of Glendale can see tomorrow’s stars today - right in their own backyard!
Tickets to GLENDALE GLORY start at $45 and can be purchased online by going to www.artofboxingpromotions.com or www.bashboxing.com. Tickets can also be purchased by calling Art of Boxing Promotions at (818) 521-2373 or Bash Boxing at (213) 700-7001. GLENDALE GLORY takes place on Friday, June 12, 2009 at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. Doors Open at 7pm, First Bout is at 8pm.
