Chris Henry gets title shot

WBA #4 light heavyweight Chris Henry (24-2, 19 KOs) hopes to parlay his explosive win by sixth-round technical knockout of Shaun George last July into a February 27 upset of former WBA light heavyweight champion and currently #3 rated Hugo Hernan Garay (32-4, 17 KOs) in a bout for the WBA interim belt at El Polyforim Benito Juarez in Cancun, Mexico. Garay and Henry previously fought each other as amateurs in the 1997 World Under-19 Tournament. “We were just amateurs but I saw the politics of boxing even back then,” Henry noted. “I thought I did more and should have won; we fought in his hometown. We were kids then and now we’ve grown into men.”
Garay-Henry is one of two world championship bouts on “The Double Assault” pay-per-view event, presented by KO Entertainment in Mexico and PR Best Boxing Promotions in Puerto Rico, in association with All Star Boxing and Sampson Boxing LLC. The unique broadcast is being distributed in the United States and Canada by Integrated Sports for live viewing at 9 PM/ET – 6 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, TVN, DISH Network, Viewer’s Choice and Shaw PPV for a suggested retail price of only $34.95.
