Yesterday, Team Tapia officially announced the rubber match between Tapia (57-5-2, 29 KOs) and former nemesis Frankie Archuleta (26-7-1, 14 KOs), at the newly-opened Team Tapia Gym in Northeast Albuquerque, N.M. In two of the state’s most significant fights of the decade, Tapia lost to Archuleta in Las Vegas, N.M., in 2003, then won the rematch two years later, in Albuquerque. The “Final Chapter,” as the card is billed, takes place June 12 at the Ohkay Casino in Espanola, N.M. Stay tuned for a full report and more photos from the presser later today.
