Tonight is the grand opening for a new venue in Mesa launched by Julio Cesar Chavez. The 30,000 square foot facility is a boxing themed entertainment complex that includes a restaurant, bar, arcade area, a World Boxing Council Legends of Boxing Museum, and event center that will eventually host their own boxing cards. Chavez says it will be “The first of many” with hopes to open similar complexes in other cities.
We were honored that to be selected to print the posters for their museum as well as other wall installations in the building. Being involved in the design process, we know that that working on this project has been a real labor of love for everyone involved and they are very excited for the opening. We wish them the best of luck and success!
Opening ceremony is scheduled for 6 pm tonight. Julio Cesar Chavez Campeones is located on the southwest corner of Country Club Road and Southern Avenue in Mesa. For more information visit their website.
