Over the 2017 Cinco de Mayo long weekend which saw Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez dominating performance over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., the Box Fan Expo also took place, opening its doors to boxing fans from all over the world.
From the Las Vegas Convention Centre in the boxing mecca of the world, fans from all over were able to meet and greet some of their favourite fighters, both past and present. In addition to meeting their favourite fighters fans were also able to meet with the people behind such amazing organizations like Mayweather Promotions, Premier Boxing Champions, World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association, Supreme Boxing, The Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame, Feroz Fight Factory, Kronk Boxing, The American Boxing Association and many others.
We also want to give a special thank you to Floyd Mayweather Jr. for taking time out of his busy schedule to honour the Box Fan Expo with an impromptu appearance towards the end of the show to support the Mayweather Promotions Team.
To Brandon Rios doing face-offs with fans & Shawn Porter, Marcos Maidana, Tommy Hearns, Fernando Vargas, Badou Jack, Jorge Linares, Jessie Vargas, Joel Casamayor, Kevin Kelley, Ishe Smith, Kevin Newman, Sharif Bogere, Neno Rodriguez, Mia St.John , Christy Martin, Jelena Mrdjenovich, Jesus Cuellar, sticking around to take care of each and every one of their fans, the Box Fan Expo truly delivered for boxing fans.
In addition, we’d also like to thank the many, many boxers including current and former world champions that showed up to meet their fans as this event would not be possible without the many talented fighters that have helped to build this great sport. Our sincerest thanks go out to Marco Antonio Barrera, Abner Mares, Danny Jacobs, Rances Barthelemy, Hugo Centeno, Jeff Mayweather, J’Leon Love, Hasim Rahman, Bermane Stiverne, Chris Arreola, Maricela Cornejo, Ava Knight, Humberto ‘Chiquita’ Gonzalez, Alfredo Angulo, Richard Steele, Kenny Bayless and many many more…
We also want to take this opportunity to thank Hall of Fame Broadcaster Al Bernstein for doing an incredible job conducting interviews on the main stage with the boxing celebrities for fans to enjoy.
Special thanks to our house dj, DJ Todd, for keeping the music flowing, along with our Ring Card Girls — Rose, Rochelle, Starr, Karla, and Shayla — who entertained, interacted and took pictures with all the fans.
Last, but certainly not least, our sincerest thanks goes out to the fans. This whole event would not be possible without the fans, and the support we receive from the fans makes all this worthwhile. We are truly honored to have had so many fans show up to the event and we can’t wait to start working on the next Box Fan Expo.
