INDIO, Calif., October 19 – Four-Time Heavyweight Champion of the World Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield will make a special appearance to meet fans and sign autographs inside the Fantasy Springs Special Event Center during the Friday, November 4 edition of “Sólo Boxeo Tecate.”
The appearance of the future Hall of Famer will make what promises to be a memorable night of boxing, which features a middleweight matchup between former World Champion Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora and longtime contender Jose Alfredo “Shibata” Flores in the TeleFutura “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” main event, even more memorable.
Mora vs. Flores, a 10 round middleweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate and AT&T. Doors open at 6:00pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:30pm PT. The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:30pm ET / PT (10:30pm CT).

During his illustrious career Evander Holyfield has been recognized as the both the undisputed cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion, earning him the nickname “The Real Deal.” After winning the bronze medal in the Light Heavyweight division at the 1984 Summer Olympics, he debuted as a professional at the age of 21. Holyfield moved to the cruiserweight division in 1985 and won his first title the following year when he defeated Dwight Muhammad Qawi for the WBA World Cruiserweight belt. He would later add the IBF and WBC titles, becoming the undisputed cruiserweight champion. Holyfield moved up to Heavyweight in 1988, defeating Buster Douglas for the WBA, WBC and IBF titles in 1990, becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. He holds notable victories over fighters such as George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Riddick Bowe, Ray Mercer, Mike Tyson (twice), Michael Moorer, John Ruiz, Michael Dokes and Hasim Rahman and captured the heavyweight championship of the world an astounding four times.
Former World Champion Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora (22-2-2, 6 KO’s) has had a wild 11-year professional career thus far, but the 30-year-old from East Los Angeles is far from finished when it comes to thrilling fans around the globe. Winner of the first season of NBC’s “The Contender” in 2005, Mora captivated viewers with his personality and story. Yet it wasn’t until he beat the late Vernon Forrest in 2008 for the WBC Super Welterweight World Title that he earned the respect of the diehard boxing crowd. Mora lost the belt back to Forrest in his first defense, but bounced back to stop Calvin Green in seven rounds in April of 2010 and fought to a 12-round draw with future Hall of Famer Sugar Shane Mosley in September of 2010. Following a controversial split decision loss to Brian Vera in February, Mora returns on November 4 to face “Shibata” Flores with the aim of recapturing a world title in the near future.
A respected contender at 154 pounds for years, Jose Alfredo “Shibata” Flores (45-11, 26 KO’s) never met a challenge he wasn’t willing to take head on. Turning professional in 1990, he fought his way through the tough Mexico and California fight circuits, earning respect and a world ranking along the way. The owner of several regional titles, Flores squared off against Fernando Vargas, Raul Marquez, Paul Vaden, Vince Phillips and Vernon Phillips before leaving the sport in late 2002 to pursue a singing career. In 2010, the southpaw returned to the ring and after winning two of his three comeback bouts, he is looking forward to testing himself against Mora.
ELOY PEREZ RETURNS TO SALINAS TO FACE IRA TERRY IN THE "SÓLO BOXEO TECATE" MAIN EVENT FRIDAY OCTOBER 28
LOS ANGELES, October 20 - Following an impressive September knockout over Daniel Jimenez, NABO Junior Lightweight Champion Eloy "The Prince" Perez will return to his hometown of Salinas, California on Friday, October 28 to square off against veteran Ira Terry in the 10 round main event of TeleFutura's "Sólo Boxeo Tecate" at the Sherwood Hall.
Perez vs. Terry headlines a night of world-class professional boxing presented by Don Chargin Productions, Golden Boy Promotions and Paco Presents, and sponsored by Cerveza Tecate. Doors open at 6:00pm, the first bell rings at 7:00pm and the TeleFutura broadcast begins at 10:30pm ET / PT.
Tickets, priced at $125, $75 and $50, are on sale now and can be purchased by calling (831) 261-0532 or (831) 905-7354, at the 2stepsahead Gym (832 South Main Street, Salinas, California) and at the Sherwood Hall on fight night.
Currently ranked third at 130 pounds by the WBO, 24-year-old Eloy "Prince" Perez (22-0-2, 6 KO's) is closing in on his long awaited shot at a world championship, but he's not sitting idle. Instead, he's opting to stay busy against tough competition until he's cleared out all opposition in his path. In 2011, Perez has shutout longtime contender Roger "Speedy" Gonzalez, and successfully defended his NABO title against Alejandro Rodriguez and Daniel Jimenez, setting the stage for his October 28 battle with Terry.
Tennessee native Ira Terry (24-6, 14 KO's) began his professional career with a hot streak, winning 24 of his first 26 fights, and the hard-hitting 24-year-old is not a boxer who gets discouraged easily. He is doubling his efforts in the gym and is refocused knowing that if he can issue Perez his first professional loss later this month, he will have resurrected his career in the 130-pound weight class.
Fans at home can also be part of the action by participating in Cinturón Tecate and voting for the fighter in the main event who displayed the most character in the ring by sending a text message to 55333. Voting will be open through the end of the weekend.
