Stage Front back Berlanga for Quigley Battle
May 20 2023
Ticketing giants in Edgar’s corner for June 24 showdown in New York
Matchroom’s ticketing partners Stage Front are in Edgar Berlanga’s corner as he prepares to face Jason Quigley at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, New York on Saturday June 24, live worldwide on DAZN – with Stage Front offering tickets for what promises to be a thrilling night in the Big Apple.
Berlanga (20-0 16 KOs) fights for the first time under the Matchroom banner after penning a multi-fight deal with Eddie Hearn in February and does so against all-action Irishman Quigley (20-2 14 KOs).
Berlanga shot to fame when his blistering speed and devastating power led to an astonishing run of 16 first round KOs from his debut in June 2016 to December 2020, and he landed his first pro title in October 2021 picking up the vacant WBO NABO Super-Middleweight belt, decisioning Marcelo Coceres in Las Vegas.
The 26 year old Brooklyn star has been a huge hit in the Big Apple, packing the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden with his loyal hometown and Puerto Rican support in his most recent battles with Steve Rolls and Alexis Angulo. On those nights in March and June, Berlanga defended his WBO NABO title with unanimous decision wins over ten rounds to cement his lofty World rankings.
‘The Chosen One’ sits at #4 with the WBO and IBF and at #6 with the WBA and will return to the ring this summer as Berlanga, his trainer and father Edgar Sr., Hearn and manager Keith Connolly plot his route to World title glory and the fight he craves with undisputed Super-Middleweight ruler Canelo Alvarez – and the 168lb beast is urging fans to visit Stage Front VIP and get their tickets now for a special night in the Big Apple.
“I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Stage Front VIP for a huge night in New York,” said Berlanga. “This is massive night for my career, the biggest yet, and I promise the fans I am going to deliver a performance to remember – and you can get the best seats in the house to see it with Stage Front VIP!”
Christian Griffith, VP of Marketing at Stage Front VIP: “With so many knockout wins, we believe Edgar Berlanga is one of the most captivating fighters in the game. We are excited to design and offer the most entertaining and engaging VIP experience for Berlanga fans nationwide.”
Tulaib Faizy, VP of Partnerships at Stage Front VIP: “We like doing business with winners. Partnering with Berlanga is a no-brainer for Stage Front VIP, and we are excited to bring the fight fans up close and personal to this upcoming fight against Jason Quigley June 24th at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York.”
