As a nation, we honor the men and women of the Armed Services with the observance of Veteran's Day on Wednesday, November 11. The people who defend our freedom embody a fighter's spirit; they are full of courage, discipline, and passion.
In recognition of this fighting spirit and their great service to our country, tickets for Hopkins vs. Ornelas will now be offered at a discount of 20 percent off to those with a current or past military identification (limit of eight tickets per ID).
Philadelphia's Hopkins, fighting in his hometown for the first time since 2003, wants to ensure that these men and women are recognized and that they have an opportunity to see a great fight.
"I am excited to give veterans and service men and women a chance to see me fight at a discounted rate," Hopkins said. "It is important to honor their bravery and I look forward to doing so on December 2."
The discount offer will be valid between now and fight night.
