Ramirez-Taylor title fight in Las Vegas to host about 800 fans
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas plans to host between 750 and 800 fans for the junior welterweight title fight between Jose Ramirez and Josh Taylor on May 22.
“We were very pleased to see that we were one of the top properties that they wanted to come to, and we were able to negotiate a deal that we thought made sense given the limited capacity that we have to adhere to,” said Gary Scott, chief operating officer of JC Hospitality, owner of the resort.
The fight, which will be held in The Theater, will mark the first time fans will be able to attend a live boxing event in Las Vegas since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Top Rank also will host three more fight cards in June at the theater.
