Lacy to Face Griffin!

Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy’s April 10 homecoming fight in Tampa, FL at the USF Sun Dome just got a bit more interesting. Original opponent Manuel Esparza (20-8) was scrapped, and is being replaced by “The Next Great Champ” winner Otis “Triple OG” Griffin (19-4) in the evening’s main event. “Griffin brings a bigger challenge to me than Esparza would have, so from that perspective I’m glad the switch was made. But it really don’t matter who I fight, I’m just looking to get them out of there” said a confident Lacy. “Homecoming” is presented by Left Hook Promotions and One Punch Productions, and features several Bay area notables on the undercard. Undefeated featherweight Kermit “Bazooka” Gonzalez (6-0-1) faces undefeated Derrick Wilson (4-0), and St. Pete heavyweight Lenroy “TNT” Thomas (11-1), Sarasota light heavyweight brawler Adam Jaco (4-2-1), and undefeated welterweight Said El Harrak (3-0) are also featured bouts. 9 bouts in all are scheduled, including a special attraction female bout featuring a rematch of an all-action war between Tampa featherweight Adawirky Lopez and Louisville, KY’s Caitlin Dance. Tickets are priced at $18.50, $40, $85, $135, and there are a limited number of $200 Platinum Ringside seats. Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster locations,, and the USF Sun Dome box office. VIP packages are available by calling 813-503-8109.
