2008 News Archive - Holidays - Calzaghe confirmed for Benidorm fight night
05 08 2008
WBO and WBA super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe will be appearing at the forthcoming Spanish big fight night.
The Welsh boxer will be showing off his current belts at the Plaza de Toros as part of a night dedicated to the sport.
It had been hoped that US boxer Mike Tyson would also be topping the bill but his attendance has failed to be confirmed by coaches, reports the Costa Blanca Leader.
Tickets for the fight night start at just 30 euros each and will take place on August 12th. It is expected that those enjoying holidays in the resort will be forgoing the local bars and clubs to enjoy the eight bouts featuring a whole host of top European boxers.
The sporting event is the idea of former Commonwealth medallist Steve Williams who runs a gym in Spain and believes that the night could provide a real incentive for sporting fans to enjoy a holiday to the resort this summer.
