Professional Boxing Returns To San Francisco

Professional boxing returns to San Francisco on Saturday, April 7th, as Hard Hitta Promotions announced a new pro boxing series in downtown San Francisco at the Fairmont Hotel.


A six-bout pro boxing card will be staged in the 1,250 seat Fairmont Grand Ballroom featuring long time contender and San Francisco native Karim Mayfield in the featured bout along with a host of other Bay area boxing prospects.


Presented by Mayfield’s Hard Hitta Promotions, in association with Humboldt Boxing Promotions, this event will be the first boxing show ever held at the historic five-star Fairmont, and to celebrate, fight fans will be treated to a six-fight card headlined by an eight-round welterweight showdown between Mayfield and Gaku Takahashi.


"I really wanted to bring boxing back to San Francisco in a classy manner," said Mayfield, "and you can’t get classier than the Fairmont."


And to ensure that this new boxing series will be the best to hit the Bay Area in years, Hard Hitta Promotions has retained long time fight promoter Roy Englebrecht as a show consultant. Englebrecht is best know for selling his company to Oscar De La Hoya in 2002 and forming Golden Boy Promotions where he served as COO the first three years. Englebrecht was also the promoter who launched the original Battle In The Ballroom shows at the Irvine Marriott starting in the 1990’s and running for 25 consecutive years.
