LOS ANGELES AND MIAMI – Triller Fight Club today announced the ticket onsale for the Triller Fight Club June 19 event, dubbed “Fight Club-Greatest Showman,” which will mark the first time a world-class music festival line-up will perform a full concert prior to full boxing event. Representing Miami’s first “full open seating” event post-COVID, the first concert of the new Triller Live Concert Series presents Hip Hop superstar Meek Mill, Latin superstar Myke Towers, and Reggaeton sensation Lunay performing a full-set concert prior to the start of the June 19 Fight Club event at loanDepot park, boxing’s biggest event of the year. More acts will be announced shortly. Produced by “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator Nigel Lythgoe and featuring Miami’s hottest salsa dancers and a world-class pyrotechnics display, the Fight Club event is an unprecedented evening combining the world’s best boxers and entertainers in a not-to-be-missed, four-quadrant entertainment extravaganza.
“This line-up will be as good as the best of the best festivals,” said Triller Fight Club partner Snoop Dogg. “For the first time ever we’re offering fans two for one, come see an epic world-class concert followed by the year’s most important boxing event.”
Nigel Lythgoe commented, “This event will be the ultimate culmination of boxing purism melded with a show everyone will remember. Crafted around Little Havana in a theme embracing the Latin flair, we have everything from the best Latin dancing to performances that will be seen one time only and never again, and is sure to have the world talking about for years to come.”
Triller Chairman Bobby Sarnevesht said, “Triller has always been about bringing together the world’s artists and fans, which is why we are proud to bring not only the first-ever Triller Live concert, but the first post-quarantine, fully open ticketed show.”
The concert kicks off at 7:30pm EDT, with Meek Mill, Myke Towers and Lunay—and others to be announced, performing before the most exciting, thrill-packed fight of the year, which will also offer entertainment between fights once the fight card starts. There will also be a surprise performance of a never-before-seen, never-seen-again duet.
The evening will feature a historic men’s and women’s undisputed multi-title fight card featuring ‘Takeover’ Teófimo López vs. ‘Ferocious’ George Kambosos Jr., a bout that has four belts on the line, IBF, WBA, WBO, WBC, and the prestigious Ring belt, and which CBS Sports declared will be “one of the biggest fights in recent memory,” and a four-belt title bout between Franchon ‘The Heavy-Hitting Diva’ Crews-Dezurn and Elin Cederroos.
“Boxing fans will be treated to a card including two unforgettable, four-belt undisputed championship fights, in addition to a heavyweight world title eliminator,” said Peter Kahn, Chief Boxing Officer for Triller. “Boxing fans will not want to miss these fights.”
“Come for the concert, come for the Greatest Showman show, come for the dancing, come for the boxing, or come for it all,” said Ryan Kavanaugh, co-owner of Triller. “Unlike past events, the concert will be first, so if you only want the concert, you can do that. If it’s not your cup of tea, come for the boxing and the show, or come for all of it. We have something for everyone.”
