Omega Products hosts third boxing event of the year

Event is set for Friday, Aug. 21 at Omega's Corona, Calif. headquarters.

For the third time this year, Omega Products International, a leader in the manufacturing and marketing of stucco and related wall systems, hosts a night of professional boxing this Friday, Aug. 21, from its Corona, Calif. headquarters.

The six-fight card is presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions, and sponsored by Lucas Oil, in association with Omega Products International and LATV Networks.

"Every August we partner with Thompson Boxing to put on one of the best sporting events of the year in California's Inland Empire," said Todd Martin, vice president and general manager of Omega Products. "The demand for these tickets was exceptionally high, so much so, that only a few tickets remain."

For one day, Omega Products transforms a portion of its 100,000 square foot facility into dressing rooms for boxers, meeting area for California State Athletic Commission officers, security personnel, and other groups of individuals vital to the success of the event. The ring is positioned outside, just beyond the loading area.

"This is the twelfth year in a row where we've had professional boxing on our grounds, so we have the logistics and planning down to a science," Martin said.

In the 10-round main event, elite bantamweight Carlos Carlson (18-1, 12 KOs) faces Pedro Melo (13-8, 4 KOs) for the WBC Latino Championship. In the co-main event, heavyweight knockout artist LaRon Mitchell (8-0, 8 KOs) hopes to continue his knockout spree against Curtis Lee Tate (7-6, 6 KOs).

The Omega Products Outdoor Arena is located at 1681 California Ave., Corona, CA 92881, and can be reached at 951-737-7447. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. PT and the first fight starts at 7:45 p.m. PT.
