Mexican boxing legend Marco Antonio Barrera in Newark date

Posted: February 9, 2012 in Live shows

Marco Antonio Barrera is coming to Newark on March 9.

Three-time world champion Marco Antonio Barrera will make an eagerly-anticipated return to the United Kingdom next month.

Boxing promoter and former world champion Carl Greaves is putting together an evening with the legendary Mexican star at the Newark Showground, Newark, Nottinghamshire, on Friday, March 9.

Barrera, a former two-time WBO super bantamweight, WBC, Lineal, The Ring & IBO Featherweight and WBC & IBF super featherweight champion, earned his legendary status following a trilogy of battles with fellow Mexican legend Erik Morales – as well as being the first to defeat Sheffield’s Prince Naseem Hamed.

In his last bout, on February 12 last year, Barrera beat Jose Arias, of the Dominican Republic by a second round TKO. Barrera was ranked 43rd greatest boxer of all time by ESPN.

Those attending will get to sit down at the dinner table with the man himself, and other star guests, for a two-course meal as well as further evening entertainment. Tickets, priced at £75, can be purchased at
