Tickets go on sale today for Opening Night of the 26th season of Battle In The Ballroom shows at the Irvine Marriott, so make plans now to be at the Marriott on Wednesday, February 10th for a great night of boxing with a little mixed martial arts thrown in. Besides the over 800 season seat holders who have renewed for 2010, and the three new sponsors who have come on board this season, join the tens of thousands of sports fans who know that in Orange County on six nights a year, the Battle In The Ballroom fights are the most unique and exciting place to entertain clients and friends!

The large crowd expected for the Wednesday, February 10th will not be disappointed. Undefeated heavyweight 10-0 Joe Hanks returns to continue his climb into the heavyweight rankings, meeting 16-4 Shannon Miller in his toughest test to date. After a Ballroom battle that saw over $200 tossed into the ring, Chika Nakamura returns to meet Jennifer Barber in a female fight that is as evenly matched as possible. Nakamura is 8-1 and Barber is 9-1, and fans should not miss this fight. Santa Ana’s Jimmy Garcia returns to the ring facing 2-0 Manuel Delcid. Plus, another heavyweight match up see’s Hollywood’s Chris Davis meeting Kourtney Boden out of Henderson, NV.

Promoter Roy Englebecht will again do what was so successful at the December 17th show, as he will add another combative sport to the card and put on two mixed martial arts bouts. The Ballroom crowd liked the action, so returning on the 10th will be 3-1 Chris Saunder vs 2-0 Andy Morales in what will be a 156 pound battle. And out of LA it will be undefeated Marcus Kowal facing Las Vegas’s Titus Holmes in another MMA war.
