In a sense, tonight’s pro boxing card at Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino is a homecoming for Albuquerque’s Legacy Promotions.
In another sense, it’s something new.
Legacy was born in 2015 with a card at Camel Rock Casino north of Santa Fe, featuring Española’s Tony Valdez in the main event. Legacy went back to Camel Rock, again with Valdez in the main event, the following year.
Since then, Legacy has promoted exclusively in the Albuquerque area with Albuquerque fighters – Josh Torres, Fidel Maldonado Jr., Jason Sanchez, Willie Villanueva – in the main event.
