Orange, CA (March 8) – Tomorrow evening the IBF junior lightweight championship rematch between Mexico’s World Champion Juan Carlos Salgado (26-1-1, 16 KOs) and #1 world contender and mandatory challenger Argenis Mendez (20-2, 10 KOs) of the Dominican Republic is set to take place at the Orange County Hangar. The much anticipated match up will be preceded by an exciting 8-round welterweight war between 2008 U.S. Olympian who hails from Chihuahua, Mexico Javier “El intocable” Molina (12-1, 5 KOs) versus Florida’s heavy hitting Joseph Elegele (13-1, 10 KOs).

HBO Latino®, Home Box Office’s dedicated Spanish-language premium channel, will telecast the Salgado-Mendez bout, reaching today’s many multigenerational and bilingual Hispanic households in the U.S., appealing to the wildly popular boxing and sports fan base.

The two originally battled for the vacant IBF super featherweight title in a September 2011 bout in which Salgado persisted and survived through a rough twelfth round in which Mendez had him down, but not out, to claim his first IBF World Championship by unanimous decision.

Tickets for this event are priced at $100, $75, and $50 are on sale now and may be purchased online at www.fightcluboc.com and irma@goossentutor.com or by calling 818-817-8001.
