Lake Charles will have the opportunity to host the single largest sporting event in the history of SWLA in December!

Eric Zartler, Sales Director for the SWLA Convention & Visitors Bureau, and his team has landed a really amazing sporting event unlike anything Lake Charles has ever seen before. They worked with partners across the area to make this happen, including the City of Lake Charles as the event will be held at the Lake Charles Civic Center this December 6th - 15th.

This event is FREE to the public and will feature the best boxers in the USA competing for a chance to represent our country in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics!

This single event will be bringing in an estimated 6,500+ people including boxers, coaches and trainers, USA Boxing officials and staff, and their family members over a 2 week period and have an estimated $2 million economic impact on the Lake Area.
