Joey Lopes Memorial Main Event
When: Saturday, November 10, 2018
Are you hungry?? It is time again for the Joey Lopes Memorial Main Event.
Joey Lopes was a hometown West Sacramento boxer who fought in the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s. And he competed many times at the Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento across the river. In his early career he was selected for the 1948 U.S. Olympics boxing team. He went on to fight three times for the World Lightweight crown. He fought professionally 92 times, with 62 wins, 24 losses, and six draws. Joey died in 1997 from complications from Alzheimer's disease. Remembered as a fearless fighter and a West Sacramento community leader, Joey was honored in 2016 with a community park in West Sacramento. His sister, Jackie Lopes Gilmete said "Joey's last fight was by far his greatest. He wasn't able to beat Alzheimer's disease, but just like he did every time he stepped into the ring, he fought his heart out."
His family annually sponsors a benefit dinner to honor Joey and to assist the Alzheimer's Aid Society and the American River College Gerontology Scholarship Fund.
