May 8th, 2011 By Pedro FernandezCHARGIN MAKES GOLDEN MATCH!
Cambria, CA- All I can say about Don Chargin is he is beyond amazing. Now 82, I expect the “Boy Promoter,” as he was billed in 1951 when he made his promotional debut in San Jose, CA to eventually be included in the Guinness Book of World Records seeing he has promoted boxing for 60+ years. That being said, it is Chargin who signed Strikeforce MMA welterweight (170 lbs) champion Nick Diaz and ex-IBF super middleweight (168) boxing champion Jeff Lacy.
NO CHOKES, THIS IS A BOXING MATCH!
The bout, a boxing match will occur in the fall according to Chargin, who is worn out from all the calls he’s gotten over this megamatch that will take place at 170 lbs. With no site yet, Chargin has said many major hotels in Las Vegas have expressed interest, and that’s he’s even willing to listen and see what Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones will be willing to offer to put the fight in Cowboy’s Stadium.
IT TOOK CHARGIN TO TRUMP DANA WHITE!
When I broke this story on “Ring Talk Worldwide” with Diaz’s manager Cesar Gracie a fortnight ago, there were those that thought it was a bluff! Diaz-Lacy will be a boxing match that will not only gain worldwide media attention, it will surely rankle UFC & Strikeforce chief Dana White. The czar of MMA, White has finally come up against somebody that beat him to the punch promotionally, that being the “Boy Promoter” Don Chargin.
