Left Hook Promotions, the company founded by former IBF/IBO super middleweight champion and St. Pete native Jeff Lacy is proud to present “Homecoming”, The Return of Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa on April 10. Lacy (24-2, 17 KO’s), returns to fight in the bay area for the first time in nearly three years since a capacity crowd witnessed his knockout of Robin Reid at the St. Pete Times Forum in August 2005. “I’ve always wanted to come back and fight in Tampa, but it just wasn’t possible under the circumstances,” said Lacy. “But now that I formed Left Hook Promotions, I have the freedom to fight wherever I choose, and I wanted my first fight back to be right here in Tampa.”
“Homecoming” is presented in association with One Punch Productions and Everlast, and will feature Lacy in the main event of the evening, plus a full undercard. Nine bouts in all are scheduled, including rising heavyweight star Lenroy “TNT” Thomas, undefeated St. Pete featherweight Kermit “Bazooka” Gonzalez, undefeated St. Pete middleweight Ahsandi Gibbs, rising Tampa female star Adawirky Lopez, and additional bouts to be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets are priced at $18.50, $40, $85, $135, and a limited number of $200 Gold Ringside seats are also available. “I know people are having tough times out there, and thankfully we were able to make this event affordable for everyone” said Lacy. Tickets for this event go on sale this Saturday at 10AM at all Ticketmaster locations, ticketmaster.com, and the USF Sun Dome Box Office.
