BRINGING BOXING BACK TO ITS ROOTS
Published September 14, 1995
In New York, Wallace Matthews reports that MSG President Dave Checketts and MSG's John Cirillo are looking to "plunge in head first" to bring big-time boxing back to the Garden. Tentatively scheduled: Oscar De La Hoya vs. an unknown on December 15; Roy Jones Jr.-Buddy McGirt on January 12; and George Foreman-Michael Moorer in late February-early March. Checketts and Cirillo believe they sell blocks of Foreman tickets to corporations in exchange for Foreman making promotional appearances. Foreman's appearance fee is said to be $16M, with $6M guaranteed from the gate also a likely requirement (N.Y. POST, 9/14).
