Louisville Professional Boxer Carlos Dixon Back in the Ring Eight-Bout Card to be held July 2 at Iroquois Amphitheater
Louisville professional boxer Carlos Dixon (age 24, 11-1-0, 8 KOs) and current WBC Junior World Super Featherweight Champion will return to the ring on Friday, July 2, 2021. The eight-round bout is presented by Top Knotch Boxing and Uprising Promotions and will be held under the stars at Iroquois Amphitheater. It will be the first sanctioned boxing event to take place at the venue.
This is Dixon's first fight since he defeated Jonathan Lecona Ramos in January 2020 at Louisville Memorial Auditorium. COVID-19 restrictions made it impossible for Dixon to return to the ring until now.
"I’m excited to finally be back in the ring after such a long delay," said Dixon. "I’ve spent the past 16 months training hard to get stronger and faster. I look forward to continuing my journey to bring another major world championship back to Louisville and honor the legacy of The Greatest - Muhammad Ali. "
Information regarding the boxers who will fill out the eight-card event will be announced in mid-June.
Doors open on July 2 at 5 p.m.; first bell is at 6:30 p.m. General admission ticket prices are $25.75 if purchased at the box office, or $32.50 if purchased online.
