Professional Boxing Returns to Lubbock After Almost 20 Year Hiatus

On May 12th, professional boxing returns to Lubbock for the first time since 1987 with the West Texas Boxing standoff at 7pm at the Civic Center.

The last time pro boxing was held in Lubbock was December 12th, 1987 with Rockin Robin Blake from Levelland in the main event. The main event from this card is still being worked on, but you can expect to see several local Lubbock fighters on the card, including a few making their professional debuts.

This event is the first of hopefully many to come in Lubbock as the sport has consistent cards throughout Texas including Harlingen, Corpus Christi and Midland/Odessa.

Pro boxing is back in Lubbock on May 12th.
