Israel Vazquez Returns Oct. 10th


LOS ANGELES, September 18 – Tickets are on sale now for the much anticipated return of Mexican superstar and former world champion Israel “Magnifico” Vazquez, who will take on Angel Priolo on Saturday, October 10 at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, California.

Tickets, priced at $200, $100, $75, $50 and $25 can be purchased by calling 800-745-3000 or online at ticketmaster.com. Tickets may also be purchased starting Monday, September 21 at 9am at the STAPLES Center Box Office.

Presented by Golden Boy Promotions, Espinoza Boxing Promotions and Sycuan Ringside Promotions, Vazquez vs. Priolo: “The Return” is a ten round featherweight fight that will headline an evening of world class boxing.

Two-time junior featherweight world champion Israel Vazquez (43-4, 31 KOs) of Huntington Park, California had been a well-kept secret for much of his career, but after stoppages of Oscar Larios, Ivan Hernandez and Jhonny Gonzalez in 2005-2006, the boxing world quickly embraced him. But it was the Mexico City native’s classic trilogy with Rafael Marquez in 2007-2008 that elevated “Magnifico” to superstardom in the fight game. Vazquez won two of the three bouts against Marquez leaving it all in the ring each time, proving he has the heart of a true warrior. Although he has been sidelined since March of 2008 due to surgery for a detached retina, the 31-year-old Mexico City native has been cleared for battle and he’s ready to take on more challenges in a new weight class – featherweight.

Perennial contender Angel Priolo (30-7, 20 KO’s) has traded punches with the best in the business over the course of his professional career, including Abner Mares, Brian Viloria, Vernie Torres and Jose Nieves. He’s looking to make another run at a world title and Barranquilla, Colombia’s Priolo knows that his road to the top will be shortened considerably should he upset Vazquez on October 10.
