Rocky Juarez at H. A. W. Charity Basketball Game Houston’s Hottest Boxer Celebrates Father’s Day by Giving His Time

A.T.R. Boxing Press Release

M.O. Campbell Educational Center, Houston, TX, June 15, 2015 – Newly Crowned WBC Silver
Featherweight Champion Rocky Juarez participates in the Houston Appreciation Weekend (H.A.W.)
Celebrity Charity Basketball game on Father’s Day. The event was hosted by the rapper Drake who
was named the most streamed artist in the U.S. in 2013. Juarez arrived at the arena with his family,
new WBC Silver strap, and a big smile as he surveyed the teams. Rocky seemed to enjoy himself and
used the Father’s Day event to celebrate with his family, use his celebrity to help a charitable cause and
cross train for his next bout.

Juarez gained his new title by defeating Rene Alvarado of Nicaragua on Memorial Day, Monday, May
26, 2014 in Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas in front of thousands of military personnel and adoring fans. He
is eyeing at a shot at Jhonny Gonzalez who holds the WBC title.

“Right now I am relaxing with my family, my kids and weighing my options” answers Rocky when
asked what his next move is. “Of course I want Jhonny, he has the green belt. My advisor told me that
the WBC fully supports a fight between the two of us, Gonzalez and his promoter has gone on record
saying they want the fight and I am ready for it.”

When asked about a potential date for the Gonzalez clash Juarez adds, ”That’s not my decision. I am
ready and from what I hear Jhonny’s team wants it. The fans need to demand it, make the promoters
promote it and the networks broadcast it.”

Also on hand for the event were ATR Boxing’s prospects ‘Rougarou’ Regis Prograis an undefeated
Junior Welterweight from New Orleans, Louisiana and Welterweight ‘Cracking’ Craig Callaghan from
Liverpool, England.

“I had a ball today!” chimed power punching Prograis. “I have a six months old son named Ray so this
is my first Father’s Day, and it was one to remember!”

“I didn’t get in the game today but I had a great time” Callaghan quips. “Where I’m from we dribble
with our feet! I am an athlete and I can dunk, and I probably could kick the ball through the hoop.”

Regis, searching for his tenth victory, is scheduled to fight on June 27 in Houston, Texas while Craig is
due to return on July 12 in Fort Worth, Texas.

Rocky Juarez was in the game briefly and managed to grab a strong rebound even though he was the
most vertically challenged of all participants. Drake, the host, was tough to get to because of the throng
of media and his security team. Rocky, Regis and Craig played alongside of, and against celebrities
such as James Harden, MORADO, Christopher Reid, Bobby James, Dez Bryant, and Kirko Bangs. Houston entertainment royalty also in attendance included James Prince, Jas Prince, Kiotti, Wicked
Cricket and others.
