In addition, SVS&E and Goossen Tutor Promotions announced a new partnership to work together to

enhance the Miller Lite Fight Night at the Tank boxing series. As part of the deal, Goossen Tutor will now

oversee all aspects of matchmaking for the professional boxing series which will now be co-promotion

between SVS&E and Goossen Tutor Promotions. The Miller Lite Fight Night at the Tank series is currently in

its fourth season. The partnership between SVS&E and Goossen Tutor Promotions kicks off with the title

elimination bout between the two world contenders.

 

"We are excited to be working with Goossen Tutor Promotions, an organization synonymous with boxing

excellence," said Steve Kirsner, Director of Event Booking at HP Pavilion. "Fans and season ticket holders

of the Miller Lite Fight Night at the Tank series have come to expect and deserve a boxing series that

delivers exciting bouts with hard-hitting action. We look forward to utilizing the expertise of Goossen Tutor

This will not mark the first time Goossen Tutor Promotions and SVS&E have worked together. In August,

on the card was Bay Area resident and 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist Andre Ward and 2000 Olympic Gold

Medalist Audley Harrison.

 

"We've had our eyes on this series for quite some time and always believed that with the formation of this

partnership, that the fighters and the fans would be the beneficiaries," said Dan Goossen, President of

Goossen Tutor Promotions. "Come November 17, fans will be treated to a main event that has the future of

two fighters on the line - the winner fights for the IBF light heavyweight world championship. That's what

boxing is all about - big fights."
