This weekend saw the D.C. Armory host the Premier Boxing Champions as Adrien Broner fought Ashley Theophane in the main event of the PBC's Friday show on Spike TV..
The D.C. Armory also hosted the kick-off press conference for their April 30th Super Middleweight title double-header featuring Badou Jack and Lucian Bute for Jack's WBC title and James DeGale vs Rogelio Medina for the IBF belt.
The press conference was your normal press conference as Mayweather Promotions are putting the event on and Leonard Ellerbe himself did most of the talking.
Two noteworthy items coming out of the press conference. The promotion announced the intent to match the winners later in the year in a potential title unification bout at Super Middleweight.
The second piece of news was the appearance of Maweather Promotions chief Floyd Mayweather Jr at the press conference.
Mayweather Jr spoke briefly at the press conference and he seems to be taking the promotional business very seriously.
Our roving Boxing Channel cameras were live on the scene to capture the press conference. Check it out.
