WBA Super Featherweight World Champion García To Face Top-Rated Lamont Roach in SHOWTIME PPV® Telecast Opener on Saturday, November 25 from Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas
On the lively Saturday of November 25, the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas will be buzzing (not the word you don’t like, but literally vibrating!) with excitement. It’s where WBA Super Featherweight World Champ Héctor García and the highly-ranked Lamont Roach will throw down in the first fight of a SHOWTIME PPV event, brought to you by Premier Boxing Champions.
García, prepping in Las Vegas, is feeling like a million bucks. He’s been sweating it out with the best, saying, “This training camp has been a blast! I’m in killer shape, my weight’s perfect, and I’m strong as an ox. I can’t wait to show off what I’ve been cooking up in the gym.”
He’s gearing up for a showdown that promises to be a real treat for fans. “Roach is a sharp guy in the ring, a real brainy boxer. But I’ve been grinding hard to handle his style. He’s itching to grab my title, but I’m not letting it go without a fight. I’m leaving it all in the ring, no holding back!”
García clinched his title with a dominant win over Roger Gutiérrez in August 2022. “Super featherweight is my playground,” he boasts. “I snatched the WBA belt by toppling the division’s best. Now, I’m all set to defend my crown against the WBA’s number one. Watch me prove I’m the king of the 130-pounders.”
2022 was a rollercoaster year for García, marking his first career defeat against Gervonta Davis in January, after previously dealing Chris Colbert his first pro loss and snatching the title from Gutiérrez. But he’s bouncing back with a vengeance.
Wrapping it up, García’s eyes are on the prize: “Winning on November 25 isn’t just about keeping my belt; it’s about stamping my name as one of boxing’s elite. Beating Roach? That’s my ticket to the big leagues, the chance to take on boxing’s heaviest hitters. This isn’t just a fight; it’s a stepping stone to greatness.”
