The Midwest’s top MMA promoter, Joseph “Fight Boss” Donofrio of Donofrio Entertainment is proud to announce he is partnering with the promoter holding Michigan’s largest stable of fighters, Glen Quinn, & Joe Battaglia of TXC, for a series of three exciting shows in the upcoming months.

On May 21, the two organizations will align for BeatDOWn at the Dow Events Center in Saginaw, Michigan, then on June 4 they will reunite for another show at the Emerald Theater in Mt Clemens, Michigan, and then finally, on June 18, the series will culminate with a huge show at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan.

For Donofrio, long the driving force of boxing and MMA in Michigan, the choice to combine forces with Battaglia’s TXC was an easy one.

“This is for the fans,” he explained. “We do the biggest shows in the Midwest and Joe has the best stable of fighters. The shows that will result from this pairing are going to be among the finest ever done in the Midwest. Joe Battaglia has been grooming some of these guys since day one of their careers and a number of them have become amazingly skillful fighters. He’s really got his finger on the pulse of the MMA gyms in Michigan and the matches we make are going to show that. And he’s a very honorable guy to work with.”

For Battaglia, who is also a fighter, joining up with Donofrio Entertainment means bringing TXC into some of the Midwest’s most prestigious venues.

“It makes sense,” he said of the joint venture. “We have a great system for developing fighters and he’s got a solid background of putting on high-end shows in the biggest rooms. We’ve sold out all but one show in the last two years and are really starting to outgrow our venues. Together we’re a one/two punch for Midwest MMA. Mr. Donofrio is a class act at all times and TXC is looking forward to working together on these exciting events.”

TXC will start its own TV series on July 10 of this year that will be broadcast in the Detroit area every week on MYTV20. For more information on TXC, visit txclive.com.

Tickets for BeatDOWn at the Dow Event Center in Saginaw, Michigan, are priced starting at just $12 and are available at The Dow Center box office, all TicketMaster outlets, www.ticketmaster.com, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000 (Ticketmaster) or at 989-759-1320 (Dow). The action starts at 7:00 PM, with doors opening at 6:30 PM. The Dow Event Center is located at 303 Johnson Street in Saginaw. Tickets for the second and third events will be available soon.
