Here is a preview of what Yankee Stadium will look like for the Stadium Slugfest (June 5th) and the Pinstripe Bowl (December 30th). If you have any interest in the boxing match this Saturday, I suggest you do some online betting before it’s too late.

For all those boxing fans the Yankee Stadium will be the stage for the Slugfest next Saturday and this will be a great opportunity to remember all the history and the great fights that were performed once in the old Yankee Stadium.

After what we saw in Cowboy Stadium, an event that attended more than 51,000 people, it was pretty obvious and fair for fans to make a fight in New York and that is why next Saturday Miguel Coto and Yuri Foreman will be part of the first boxing event at the majestic stadium the Yankees.

This return will be marked by a battle for the Super Welterweight Championship, but before these two champions climb into the ring two Hispanics have made history.

The Puerto Rican Christian Martinez and Dominican Jonathan Cuba will be the first two contenders to fight in the new Yankee Stadium.

On the other hand, the ring will be in the right-center field a position that guarantees a better view for the fans, considering that in the old stadium the ring was placed around the second base, which often marred the playing surface. However that will not be a problem in the new stadium because it has an advanced drainage system to place the ring in the outfield.

Undoubtedly this fight has everything it takes to be considered as a historic moment, especially taking into account that the last fight in the NYY stadium was 34 years ago.
