Robles vs Landeros II as Semi-Main Event Friday, August 30th
As far as junior welterweight Emmanuel “Renegade” Robles is concerned, boxing saved his life.
With his street fights as experience to draw from, the “Renegade” learned the sport quickly despite starting late and a year later, he met the trainer who he credits for much of his success, Ernest Johnson.
The married father of three went pro in late 2010 with a unanimous decision over Luis Sanchez. The boxing stylist lined up three more wins including two by knock out. In early 2012, Robles faced fellow San Diegan Adrian Vargas in what he considers his toughest fight to date. The popular Vargas owned a win over Robles in the amateurs but for Emmanuel the four rounder in the pro ranks wasn’t to exact revenge, “I was having trouble getting on fight cards and we knew Vargas would be a tough fight in which we could showcase our skill. We wanted to show that we have the talent to be a world champion.”
Despite being in his hometown, Robles stepped into hostile territory as the pro-Vargas crowd chanted their favorite’s name through out the twelve minutes of action. In a classic match up of boxer vs. brawler, Robles controlled the majority of the action with quick footwork and even quicker hands as Vargas tried to use brute force to impose his will. In the end, the judges saw it a majority draw in a fast paced battle that many saw Robles easily take it.
On the strength of that performance, Bobby D Presents extended a promotional contract to Robles.
Since then, Robles has kept winning with meaningful victories over experienced veterans Jaime Orrantia and Adolfo Landeros as well as being called by current welterweight champion Timothy Bradley and Mexican 2012 olympian Oscar Molina for sparring in preparation for important bouts.
Robles is now ready to step up the competition to look for a regional title on his way to a world championship.
The San Diego fighter faced off with Landeros in his first fight of the year going six toe to toe rounds with the fifty-six fight veteran. At the end, Robles walked away amidst the crowds applause with a hard fought decision in a bout that many want to see again.
