Also in action on the August 27th VERSUS broadcast and webcast will be a matchup between flyweights Sergio Espinoza (16-5-1, 5 KO's) of San Diego, California and David Gaspar (10-2-1, 7 KO's) of Torrance, California, who will compete in a four or six round bout. 22-year-old Ricky Lopez (5-0, 2 KO's) of Oxnard, California is off to a fast start in his professional career and he's already built a following at Club Nokia, where he defeated Rufino Serrano and Eder Peralta respectively in his last two bouts. He'll be attempting to make it three in a row when he takes on Ecuador native John Wampash (1-1-1, 1 KO) in a four round featherweight bout to open the televised show.
Former National Amateur Champion Carlos Molina (8-0, 4 KO's) has already achieved a lot in the fight game at the young age of 20, but the Commerce, California native has only scratched the surface on his amazing talent in the ring. Unbeaten in eight professional fights, Molina is coming off a fourth round TKO of Ever Luis Perez in his last bout at Club Nokia on July 30th. However, looking to spoil his perfect record is Kansas City's Antony Nelson (7-10-1, 7 KO's), a hard-hitting battler who is coming off a second round stoppage of Cody Bell on July 3rd. Molina and Nelson will meet in a four/six round junior welterweight televised swing bout.
Opening the night of boxing will be debuting junior welterweight Juan Heraldez of Las Vegas, who will face Los Angeles' Luis Tapia (1-2) in a four rounder.
"Fight Night Club," is Golden Boy Promotions' and AEG's critically acclaimed new live monthly boxing series, that presents boxing in a night club atmosphere, with a DJ, music, great food and a VIP room, as well as a unique setup where the ring is on Club Nokia's stage with standing room for fans in front of the ring, as well as reserved seating in the balcony. After the boxing action ends, fans are invited to stay to hear great music played by LA's hottest DJ's, dance and mingle with the fighters as the venue converts back into a night club.
