Golden Boy Boxing Series presented by Anidjar & Levine
Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that the Golden Boy Boxing Series presented by Anidjar & Levine is back at the BB&T Center on Monday, Oct. 14 featuring unbeaten junior middleweight Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo against New York City southpaw Jose Angel “Silver Boy” Rodriguez, as well as a special appearance by former World Champion Roy Jones, Jr.
Tickets are on sale now and the event will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.
“We are thrilled to bring Golden Boy Boxing back to the BB&T Center for the third time in the last year,” said SSE President Michael R. Yormark (@PanthersYormark). “We’ve got a great event to look forward to with an incredible main event and an appearance from one of the best pound-for-pound fighters ever in Roy Jones, Jr.”
“Rodriguez is a tough veteran who has definitely fought quality opposition,” said Charlo. “It’s my job to make him look like an amateur and get him out of there. That’s what I plan on doing on October 14.”
“This is a great opportunity and I thank Golden Boy Promotions and FOX Sports 1 for making this happen,” said Rodriguez. “Now it’s up to me to get the job done and I’m more confident than ever that my hand will be raised.”
“We are very much looking forward to bringing the Golden Boy Live! series to the BB&T Center,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “One of the best parts of consistently hosting this Monday night fight series, is the opportunity to showcase up and coming fighters in different cities so that fight fans across the country have the chance to see great fights live.”
