The Million Dollar Super Four Boxing Final on 13 July 2013!

     
     

    Under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Million Dollar Super Four will come back to Monaco for an evening that will take your breath away!

     

    Monte-Carlo Million Dollar Super Four BoxeAlthough the Principality is traditionally known for gaming, culture and leisure, it is often forgotten that sports are also deeply entrenched in its history.

     

    Very early on, the Société des Bains de Mer included sports in the distractions it offered to its clients, with combat sports right alongside water sports, golfing and tennis. Monte-Carlo has hosted pigeon shooting since 1872, international fencing tournaments, and boxing since the early 1900s.

     

    In 1912, the Principality had the privilege of witnessing Georges Carpentier‘s win during the European Middleweight Championships; his victory over British contestant Jim Sullivan boosted Carpentier to national hero status. Everybody remembers the fights between Carlos Monzon and Nino Benvenuti, which really impressed people in the 1970s.

     

    In 2006, boxing made a comeback in Monaco. In 2013, the year of Monte-Carlo SBM’s 150th anniversary, the group had to organise an exceptional boxing tournament. That’s why Monte-Carlo SBM, in collaboration with Golden Gloves, decided to organise on 30 March the Monte-Carlo Million Dollar Super 4, a fantastic tournament with four of the best boxers in the world. The finalists Denis GRACHEV (Russia) and Edwin RODRIGUEZ (Dominican Republic) will fight in an extraordinary match on 13 July for a million-dollar prize.

     

    In view of the success of the first part of the Million Dollar Super Four, during which other matches were also held, a more ambitious tournament will be held on 13 July under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. Not only will there be the long-awaited final with the winners of the “Super 4″ qualifying rounds, but also a European Middleweight Championship and most importantly a WBA Super Lightweight World Championship as well as a WBC World Silver Light Heavyweight Title.

     

    Early in the evening, the up and coming young Monegasque boxer Hugo Micallef will step into the ring. Micallef has been selected for the next Olympic Games and won the fight on 30 March against Thomas Hiab of PCN, a club from Nice.
