Golden Boy expecting sellout for Maidana-Lopez clash

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer announced that he expects The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., to be sold out for the card headlined by Marcos Maidana vs. Josesito Lopez this Saturday. “The venue has 8,279 seats and there are only about 800 seats left on sale so we definitely will have a sell-out,” Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions said. “That shows that cumulatively this card is the single best card we have had here in Carson. I was talking with my good friend Dan Beckerman, the President and CEO of AEG and he was telling me that there has only been one event in the history of boxing here in Carson that has been a sell-out and that was the Antonio Margarito fight in 2007 against Paul Williams. Whenever there’s a fight in Carson it always elevates the crowd and the fighters. It’s a hotbed for boxing, has been called the mecca of boxing in Southern California and I agree with that.”
