"MONTE CARLO MILLION" SHOW MOVING FORWARD
Press Release: With just more than a month until the "Monte-Carlo Million Dollar Super Four" boxing tournament in Monaco, the organizers have been busy preparing for the mega-event. "I've been in this business a long time and I've never known anything like it," said Rodney Berman, chief executive of Golden Gloves, which is promoting the tournament. All the major fighters, among them Gennady Golovkin, Nobuhiro Ishida and Edwin Rodriguez, are bringing out supporters while Zsolt Erdei has asked for a special block booking at the venue for his Hungarian supporters."
Golden Gloves, in partnership with the Monte-Carlo SBM Group, is planning week-long series of event leading up to the show, headlined by Golovkin defending his WBA middleweight belt against Ishida. The elimination event features Rodriguez (22-0, 15 KOs) against Ezequiel Osvaldo Maderna (19-0, 13 KOs) and Erdei (33-0, 18 KOs) versus Denis Grachev (12-1-1, 8 KOs) with the two winners advancing to the final at the second leg of the tournament on July 13th to square off for a 60/40 split of US$1 million.
The preceding Sunday (March 24th) will start with a meet-and-greet function at the Casino de Monte-Carlo featuring Golovkin, followed by a public media conference featuring all the boxers on Tuesday and public sparring on the Wednesday, from 3pm.
The weigh-in will take place on Friday (March 29th) at 6pm with the invitation-only post-fight conference set for March 30th. While the tournament will be held at the Chapiteau de Fontvieille, all the parallel events will take place at the elegant and historic Casino de Monte-Carlo.
The European junior-middleweight title bout featuring champion Sergei Rabchenko (Russia) and Adriano Nicchi (Italy) also features on this show.
