Callum Walsh enjoys guest role at UFC 292 ahead of return

The Fastest Rising Star in Boxing, ‘King’ Callum Walsh, traveled cross-country this past weekend to sit cage side at UFC 292 in the sold-out TD Garden in Boston, MA.

Walsh made the media rounds and visited with a wealth of his fans at the event while also meeting with UFC President, Dana White.

Last week, the UFC released the latest episode of ‘Dana White: Lookin for a Fight’ featuring behind the scenes footage of Callum’s fight week in Boston this past March alongside Callum’s promoter Tom Loeffler, President of 360 Promotions and Callum’s Hall of Fame Trainer Freddie Roach. Joining White throughout the new episode are co-hosts Matt Serra and Din Thomas.

Said the 22-year-old Callum Walsh, “It was great to be back in Boston for UFC 292 and see Dana and all the fans in the sold-out arena. I appreciated all the recognition and support from the fans and I look forward to going back to Boston for another fight in the future.”

“The trip to Boston was a tremendous promotional success for Callum,” said Tom Loeffler. “The fan reaction was incredible and everyone was asking when he would fight there again. Dana’s “Lookin For a Fight-Boston” which featured Callum’s fight in March took his popularity to a whole different level. Many fighters would never fly cross country to promote their fight coming up in a week, but Callum understands the value of promotion and putting on exciting fights in the ring.”

Headlining Hollywood Fight Nights on Saturday, August 26, Walsh, (7-0, 6 KOs), will make the first defense of his WBC US Silver Super Welterweight Title against battle-tested veteran ‘El Pitbull’ Juan Jose Velasco, (24-4, 15 KOs), of Buenos Aires, Argentina in a scheduled ten rounder at The Commerce Casino and broadcast globally on UFC FIGHT PASS.

Remaining tickets for the August 26 event, priced at $200, $150, $100, $80 and $60 can be purchased online at Commerce Casino, ‘The World’s Largest Card Room and Site of the LA Poker Classic’, is located at 6131 Telegraph Road, Commerce, CA 90040.
