Little Creek Casino Resort Welcomes Showtime Boxing Event, June 26
(SHELTON, Wash.) — Showtime Boxing returns to Western Washington this summer as Little Creek Casino Resort (www.little-creek.com) hosts undefeated Dominic “Lights Out” Wade and former World Champion “King” Sam Soliman in a 10-round Main Event on Friday, June 26th.
Presented by TGB Promotions and commemorating the 15th anniversary of “ShoBox: The New Generation,” live coverage of “Little Creek Brawl VII” will be broadcast to a national audience from the resort’s Skookum Creek Event Center.
Tickets for the event start at $20 and are available at http://www.little-creek.com or by calling 1.800.667.7711. Doors open at 5 p.m., with the first fight tentatively set for 6 p.m. local time (PST).
“Our nationally-televised boxing matches are always one of the most popular resort events of the year, drawing fans from Seattle to Portland and many places in between,” said Little Creek Casino Resort CEO Michael Starr. “We’re thrilled to once again welcome guests and help them enhance this entertainment experience with overnight lodging, great food, lounges and many more amenities.”
One of the highest-rated amateurs in the country as a teenager, Wade (17-0, 12 KOs) sports an untarnished record as a middleweight pro. The 24-year-old Largo, Md. native won his last trip to Little Creek Casino Resort a second round technical knockout over Eddie Hunter in December.
Opposite the ring, Soliman (44-12, 18 KOs), a former IBF World Middleweight Champion from Australia, looks to rebound from a title fight loss to Jermain Taylor in October, 2014 that ended a 10-fight win streak.
The 10-round main event is preceded by two eight-round bouts featuring undefeated young boxers. Florida’s 19-year-old super welterweight prodigy Erikson “Hammer” Lubin (10-0, 7 KOs) faces an opponent to be announced. In the other featured fight, Jamel “Semper Fi” Herring (11-0, 7 KOs) looks to stay perfect against a foe to be determined.
“We’re very excited to work once again with the terrific Little Creek Casino Resort team on this exciting fight card,” said Tom Brown of TGB Promotions. “Wade vs. Soliman is an excellent crossroads bout. Additionally, Lubin and Herring are two of the best prospects in boxing.”
Previously hosting boxing events broadcast on Showtime and ESPN, the 22,500-square-foot Skookum Creek Event Center provides unrivaled sightlines and acoustics for a televised fight. Boxing fans staying the weekend at the resort’s well-appointed rooms and suites may also complete their experience with a round of golf at world-renowned Salish Cliffs Golf Club, a treatment at Seven Inlets Spa or Vegas-style gaming on the casino floor.
