YouTube Theater in Inglewood, Calif. hosted an exclusive media roundtable with Santa Ana’s Alexis Rocha (21-1, 13 KOs) ahead of his NABO Welterweight title defense against Anthony “Juice” Young (24-2, 8 KOs), as Rochas is looking to make a statement towards a potential world title fight in 2023.
“I’m super excited to be the main event again. After this fight, I feel like I will have the power to start calling out the big guys and demanding for the big fights,” said Rocha, THE NABO welterweight champion. ““I feel privileged to headline the first-ever boxing event to be held at the YouTube Theater. It’s going to be a great night of boxing on DAZN and I hope that everyone can tune in."
The fight which will be a 12-round main event fight will be the first boxing event at YouTube Theater on January 28. Doors to the venue will open at 3:00 p.m. PST, and the worldwide broadcast on DAZN begins at 5:00 p.m. PST/ 8:00 p.m. EST.
Oscar De La Hoya, the CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, weighed in on
“2023 is a big year for Golden Boy and we have a huge slate of fights ready to go. YouTube Theater is such an intimate venue, and fans will feel the energy being so close to the ring,” said De La Hoya. “January 28 has an excellent slate of fights. From the opening fight to the main event, fans can expect fireworks.”
This came mere hours before De La Hoya’s viral photo that seemingly broke the internet in which a photo surfaced of himself and Ryan Garcia posing with a contracting implying that the Gervonta Davis fight is nearly a done-deal.
