Chordale "The Gift" Booker vs Brian Chavez Mohegan Sun Arena

Chordale "The Gift" Booker (22-1, 10 KOs) is set to make his fifth appearance in six fights at the Mohegan Sun Arena on June 15, facing off against Argentina’s Brian Chavez (14-4, 5 KOs) in a compelling 10-round middleweight bout. This fight will serve as the main event for CES Boxing’s "Championship Jackpot 2024," a special Father’s Day weekend doubleheader.

The event promises a thrilling night with 11 professional bouts following the "Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Invitational," an amateur showcase spotlighting some of the most promising young talents in boxing. Booker's frequent appearances at Mohegan Sun Arena have helped him build a strong local fanbase, with enthusiastic supporters packing the venue to cheer on their hometown hero. This dedicated following has witnessed Booker secure three knockouts in his last five bouts at the arena, as the 33-year-old edges closer to a world title opportunity.

On June 15, Booker will step up to the middleweight division, a category he has competed in sporadically throughout his eight-year career. This decision follows his failure to make weight for his WBC USA Super Welterweight title defense against Greg Vendetti on February 3, a fight Booker dominated to win by unanimous decision. Recognizing the challenges of remaining at junior middleweight, Booker is now fully embracing the middleweight division.

In preparation for the upcoming fight, Booker has been training rigorously, frequently traveling to Philadelphia to spar with elite fighters like Jaron "Boots" Ennis. His opponent, Brian Chavez, is known for his agility and could present a different set of challenges compared to the rugged style of Vendetti.
