NEW YORK (Sept. 5, 2012) –Tecate, cerveza con carácter and longtime supporter of marquee Mexican Independence Day boxing events, announces the details of its promotional campaign in support of the sold-out Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Sergio Martinez card scheduled to take place on September 15 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. The middleweight championship battle will be broadcast live by HBO Pay-Per-View, allowing fans across the U.S. to cheer for their favorite boxer.
To make the fight as accessible as possible, Tecate is offering qualifying adults 21-and-older up to $50 back by mail with the purchase of the HBO PPV event and Tecate or Tecate Light product (where legal). The exact rebate amount and beer purchase necessary varies by state, but fans can visit the “Cupón Carácter” tab on www.Facebook.com/TecateBoxing to review details, eligibility requirements and download the necessary forms.
“Mexican Independence Day is an occasion to celebrate the character and determination of our consumers, as well as that of fighters like Chavez Jr., and Martinez who give it their all in the ring,” said Felix Palau, vice president of marketing for Tecate. “We invite adult fans over 21 across the U.S. to be part of this celebration through our special offers and events designed specifically around this fight.”
To build excitement leading up to the Top Rank card, Tecate has been hosting a series of events in key cities alongside renowned Liberman Broadcasting personality Don Cheto. At each activation, fans 21 and older can meet and get autographs signed by celebrity boxers like Shane Mosley, Fernando Vargas, Brandon Rios and Israel Vazquez.
