Unbeaten middleweight Michael Oliveira (11-0, 9 KOs) ,returns to his roots November 20, headlining “A Gala Night of Boxing” pro-am event, at Espaco das Americas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The 20-year-old Oliveira (11-0, 9 KOs) was born in Sao Paulo but he moved two weeks after birth with his family to Miami. The card is presented by Rumble Star Promotions and will air live on SporTV and TV Globo International.
“We’re very excited to go home and have the opportunity for Michael to showcase his skills to Brazilian boxing fans there and watching on TV Globo International and SporTV,” said Michael’s father and Rumble Star CEO, Carlos Oliveira. “Michael has many family members, friends and a growing fan-base in Brazil, as well as the United States. TV Globo, the third-largest network in the world, has started a partnership with us to broadcast Michael’s fights during the next two years through SporTV and Globo TV International. We’re positioning Michael to fill the void in Brazilian boxing left by the great Acelino ‘Popo’ Freitas when he retired.”
