Camponovo Sports is set to electrify the sports entertainment arena with its latest venture, “New Blood.” This boxing series will hold its inaugural event on September 9, 2023, at Long Beach’s iconic Infinite Reality Studios, formerly Thunder Studios.
This premier event aims to spotlight the next generation of boxing superstars and will be broadcast live on FOX Deportes. Subsequent airings will be tape-delayed on Estrella TV and beIN SPORTS, ensuring a reach of 98-million homes across the U.S.
In the spotlight for the 8-round main event are featherweight contenders Rigoberto Hermosillo (13-4-1, 9 KOs) of Los Angeles and Alexis De Luna (10-1, 5 KOs) of Bakersfield.
