Professional boxing is coming to downtown Victoria and we’re giving away tickets (CONTEST)


Get ready for a night of fights you’ll never forget, Victoria!

Premier boxing is returning to Vancouver Island this June, and you’re invited.

Champ Promotions’ ‘Round 3’ will take the stage at Victoria Conference Centre on June 3rd, featuring high-energy, high-level athletes, and sold-out crowds full of beautifully dressed people wanting a unique and classy night out.

And Champ wants you looking your best! They’re asking fans to don their finest attire for an elevated evening full of fun—live boxing, licensed alcohol sales, a party atmosphere, a live band, DJ, VIP lounge and ringside tables with dinner.

Tickets, including VIP packages are available now and can be purchased online.

Champ Promotions will be presenting twelve bouts including some of Canada’s top amateur boxers, along with their first-ever professionally sanctioned bouts.

This event will feature:

  • Ricardo “Big 12” Brown – Standing 6’7.5” tall and weighing 275 pounds, Brown is a massive heavyweight boxer that currently holds a 7-0 professional record, and is coming to Victoria to put on a show for Western Canada. Brown fights professionally out of Toronto and is the man to watch in the heavyweight division with all seven of his bouts in professional boxing ending in knockout victory, and all ending quickly. In seven professional bouts Brown has only seen 11 total rounds because his opponents, to date, just can’t stay standing in the face of his size, power, and skill. This is not a match that any boxing fan will want to miss as he faces off against an experienced Mexican fighter, Miguel Angel Flores Gomez.
  • Eric Basran – Four-time Canadian Lightweight Champion, Commonwealth Games Bronze Medalist and 3-0 professional record
  • Brayden Blazina – BC Super Heavyweight Champion (6 ‘5, 240)
  • Kyle Paposis – Saskatchewan Super/Heavyweight Champion(6’5. 275)
  • Brandon Colantonio – 1-0 as a pro and making his hometown professional debut

Many more boxers to be announced!

Doors for this event will open at 5 p.m., with the Ange Hehr Band playing live tunes starting at 6 p.m. Boxing kicks off at 7 p.m.!

These tables will have a premium vantage point for the fights and the live band.
