Las Vegas, NV, January 10, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Televised boxing entertainment arrives at the Silver Saddle Saloon in Las Vegas with a nugget of a show on Saturday, January 21st at 3pm. Las Vegas professional heavyweight Alvaro Morales will be taking on five different heavyweights in a made for TV show. This exhibition is not a competitive boxing match but rather a sports entertainment show produced for TV4U.Com by the TVS Television Network.
Each of the five fighters will go two, two minute rounds each with Morales. The 28 year old Morales is currently the 11th ranked heavyweight in Mexico and is looking to become a Top 10 heavyweight from his homeland.
After starting his career undefeated in his first six fights, Morales was rushed up the ladder and suffered a dry spell while fighting competition above his experience level. His new management in Las Vegas has realized his potential and is now bringing him along in a more reasonable fashion.
The show is reminiscent of the fabled George Foreman vs. Five Guys ABC TV special in 1975. Forman had just lost his title to Muhammad Ali in the "Rope a Dope" fight in Zaire, and followed that up with the 5 vs. 1 exhibition in Toronto. It was great theater (Ali was in the audience, Howard Cosell at the microphone) and remains one of the most requested boxing videos of all time.
The Silver Saddle Saloon in Las Vegas is a historic casino in the Downtown district of Las Vegas. Long known for music and dancing, the Silver Saddle Saloon is now expanding into an aggressive sports program to complement the entertainment offerings.
The event will be seen on the Azteca America affiliate in Las Vegas, KHDF-TV on a delayed basis. It will also be seen on DirecTV, regional cable sports networks, TVS Boxing.Net and TVS Sports.Com.
"Boxing in Las Vegas is always exciting," said TV4U CEO Charry Kennedy. "Even though this is an entertainment event and not a competitive boxing match, it should be very entertaining and exciting for all boxing fans."
The Alvaro Morales vs. 5 Heavyweights event begins at 3pm on Saturday, January 21 at the Silver Saddle Saloon in Las Vegas, and will include a complete musical program as well as the boxing event.
TVS Television Network has been televising boxing for decades. The company was established in 1961 and is the fourth oldest commercial TV network in the USA. Veteran Las Vegas sports announcer Seat Williams will call the play by play in English while Jamie Estrada will handle play by play chores for the Spanish program.
TV4U and the TVS Television Network are both owned by Margate Entertainment LLC, a Henderson, Nevada based independent audio, video, and print content company.
