Thompson Boxing Promotions announce their last ever show
After an illustrious and groundbreaking journey spanning over two decades, Thompson Boxing Promotions, founded by the late Ken Thompson, has made the difficult decision to conclude its operations. Thompson Boxing will be holding its final "Path to Glory" show on Friday, July 21, 2023, marking the end of an era that has left an indelible mark on the sport.
26-year-old Californian Louie Lopez (13-2-1, 4 KOs) will headline in a welterweight 8-round main event against an opponent TBA. Lopez was floored in the first round of his last fight with Angel Beltran Villa in March so will be desperate to get back to winning ways and put on a show for his fans in such an historic event.
George Acosta (15-1, 2 KOs) will fight an opponent TBA in an 8-round super featherweight co-feature. 26-year-old 'El Yuyu' is on a eight fight win streak having lost just once in his career to Ruben Torres in 2019.
