JAMES KIRKLAND VS. DENNIS SHARPE MOVES TO TONIGHT’S CO-FEATURE ON “SÓLO BOXEO TECATE” BROADCAST
LOS ANGELES, June 24 – As a result of tonight’s original scheduled TeleFutura “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” co-featured bout pitting Florida’s Joseph Elegele against Dallas’ Noel Rodriguez being canceled when Rodriguez arrived to weigh-in overweight, James Kirkland and Dennis Sharpe’s eight round middleweight bout will now be tonight’s co-featured bout on the broadcast which will emanate from the Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, Texas. The main event of the evening features Fort Worth’s Brian Vera in a battle against San Antonio’s Eloy Suarez.
This night of world-class professional boxing is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate, AT&T and DeWalt Tools. The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:30pm ET / PT (10:30pm CT).

Tecate, cerveza con carácter, is the largest beer brand to sponsor boxing matches in the U.S. Part of its commitment to make boxing accessible to consumers is the title sponsorship of “Sólo Boxeo Tecate,” which creates an opportunity for local fans to witness some of the most exhilarating fights by today’s up-and-coming prospects. Additionally, Tecate has been a primary supporter of Golden Boy Promotions’ marquee events since 2007, and has launched a variety of initiatives to ensure consumers are part of the boxing experience, including boxer autograph signing sessions, commemorative cans, PPV mail-in rebate offers, and most recently the launch of a mobile museum “Tecate Museo de Boxeo,” which showcases decades of the most memorable moments in the sport.
