The first edition of GBP on ESPN2 comes to us this Thursday, March 23rd as the main events from the seven fight boxing card at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California are set to air. For the inaugural main event, GBP is putting undefeated middleweight prospect Jason Quigley (12-0) to the test against the experienced Glen Tapia (23-3).
Quigley has been putting in the work for his first main event spot on television, making himself available to the media and generally promoting the forthcoming fight. As for Tapia, the talented 27 year old has gone 0-2 in his last two fights and he is looking to get his career back on track by putting a stop to Quigley’s upwards trajectory.
