One Punch Expands to Charlotte

Longtime Florida promoter One Punch Productions has announced that negotiations are complete for it’s expansion into the Charlotte, NC market. “This is a great move for us, and I’m very happy to be going into Charlotte” said One Punch Productions President Terry Trekas. “I have been looking at additional markets for almost a year, and ultimately it came down to Charlotte and Savannah, GA. In the end, I chose Charlotte.”

He continued, “It’s a great sports city, with the Panthers in the NFL, the Bobcats in the NBA, and they even have a minor league hockey team, the Charlotte Checkers. I think our events will fit in quite well there, and we were fortunate to be able to make a deal with the luxurious Blake Hotel in downtown Charlotte to host our events. Our first Charlotte show will be Friday October 29, then we come back to Tampa on November 12, and then we are looking to wrap up the year on Friday December 3rd back in Charlotte. Ideally I would like to do 6 shows a year in Charlotte, and continue with our Tampa shows on alternate months. This will give our fighters exposure in an additional market, as well as adding 6 additional dates to keep our guys busy. So I’m very optimistic about this, and hopefully the Charlotte market welcomes our events. That’s the true litmus test in this business, and based on the preliminary feedback we are getting from up there this expansion should be very successful.”
