SAN DIEGO SHOW FEATURES MEXICAN VS. AMERICAN MAIN EVENT
Press Release: Pro boxing returns to San Diego on Thursday, July 25th when promoter Bobby D Presents puts on a show at the Four Points by Sheraton in Kearny Mesa, a suburb of “America’s Finest City”. Featured in the main event is twenty-five year-old junior welterweight Emmanuel “Renegade” Robles (8-0-1, 3 KOs) who takes on Mario “Popeye” Hermosillo (12-10-3, 2 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico, in an eight-round clash. Tickets available by visiting SanDiegoFights.com.
The slick-boxing Robles is coming off his best win in his last fight when after struggling in the early going, he stopped hard-hitting Joshua Marks in four rounds. Robles caught Marks with an uppercut that forced Marks to take several steps back against the ropes. Robles took full advantage and after scoring series of power punches, referee David Mendoza stopped the contest.
The win marked his fourth straight since the only blemish on his record, a draw against fellow undefeated Adrian Vargas.
Hermosillo who despite his poor record, is known as a tough out for anybody including Brandon Bennett, Alejandro Luna and Pablo Cesar Cano. The Tijuana tough guy is coming off a six-round unanimous decision win over Ulises Duarte a short month ago.
Also featured on the show will be light welterweight Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker (9-0-1, 7KOs) of Dallas. The hard hitting Hooker has just recently made a move to southern California. In his last fight, it took him all six rounds to finally stop John Montes but only two to stop Adam Ealoms prior to that.
Returning to San Diego will be the southpaw lightweight Leon “3rd Generation” Spinks III (5-0-1, 3 KOs) in a four rounder. In his last outing, Spinks III had no trouble defeating Dominic Coca who Spinks III via unanimous decision.
San Diego's Prince “Tiger” Smalls (0-0-1) competes in a four round featherweight contest against Jose Garcia (0-3) of Santa Ana, CA. In his pro debut last month in Tijuana, Smalls bit off more than he could chew when he went life and death with Erick “Monkey” Aguirre and escaped with a majority draw. Smalls will look to correct the wrongs and wow his hometown crowd on July 25th. Two more will fights flesh out the card.
