King Sports Worldwide promised a fight card featuring some of boxing’s most exciting young professional fighters for Wednesday night’s debut event at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. They have largely delivered on that promise. “There will be no ‘undercard’ on Wednesday, April 16,” said Michael King, president of King Sports Worldwide. “We have five exciting fights scheduled featuring equally accomplished fighters. The records and past performances speak for themselves and we will fulfill our promise to bring Southern California boxing fans ultra-competitive fights.”
