Boxing icon and current Welterweight World Champion Sugar Shane Mosley, junior welterweight contender "Vicious" Victor Ortiz and world-renowned boxing promoter Golden Boy Promotions will stage a boxing exhibition at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway pits on Saturday, October 31, the final day of qualifying at the Ninth Annual NHRA Las Vegas Nationals.
Mosley will be joined by fellow Golden Boy boxer Victor Ortiz and two-time NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series world champion Tony Pedregon for a meet-and-greet with fans from 2-3:30 p.m. that will coincide with a series of sparring sessions by up-and-coming Golden Boy Promotions boxers in a full-size boxing ring in the southeast corner of the pits, near the grandstand.
The boxers participating in the sparring session will be "Fight Night Club" series fighters Luis Ramos Jr., Charles Huerta, Ronny Rios and David Rodela.
After the meet-and-greet, Mosley and Ortiz will be escorted to the starting line to get an up-close-and-personal taste of NHRA's Nitromethane-powered, 7,000-horsepower Funny Cars and Top Fuel dragsters.
The event is brought to you by Golden Boy Promotions and Quaker State and is being hosted by NHRA and The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The NHRA Las Vegas Nationals is the 23rd event in the 24-race NHRA Full Throttle Series season and it is the fifth event in the six-race NHRA Playoffs, the Countdown to 1.
