"We are looking to provide a stage for the young fighters in the city which there is many," "Pelucho" Morales stated. "These fighters are the ones that we have to maintain active since that is the way you learn the sport. There is only so much you can do in the gym, inside the ring is where the real lessons are learned."
In the main event, the vastly popular Tijuana light welterweight Jesus "Bombardero" Valadez (5-1, 2KOs) will look to shine against the tough Edgar Vazquez (4-2-1, 2KOs), also of Tijuana, in a six round face off. The eighteen year old Valadez, who lost his first pro fight but then rattled five consecutive wins, is known for an exciting style of non-stop pressure which has led to impressive wins over the more experienced Jorge Sillas and Julio Paz. In his last fight, Valadez earned a unanimous decision over Gerardo Chavez.
In the co-main event, Juan "Bufalo" Dominguez (1-0) will look to remain undefeated against Rodrigo Ramirez (0-1) in a rare Tijuana heavyweight four round showdown. "Bufalo" made his pro debut just last month with a unanimous decision over Carlos Cuevas.
Also set for the fight card is lightweight Ciro"Gallo" Arrellano (1-0) of Tijuana by way of Oaxaca looking to ruin the pro debut of Martin Gomez, also of Tijuana. Ramon Vidales (1-2, 1KO) goes against undefeated Gerardo Mendoza (3-0), both of Tijuana, in a four rounder set in the lightweight division. 2011 Tijuana's super bantamweight amateur champion Erick "Tepeyac" Cebreros is also slated for the night versus the always dangerous TBA. Cebreros, who is trained by two-time world champion Raul "Jibaro" Perez, will look to earn his third pro win.
"We have seen that there is a lot of activity in Tijuana and that is due to the other promoters as well as efforts of the Tijuana Boxing Commission led by Juan Carlos Pelayo and Alejandro Garcia," Morales said. We have been successful in the past with this kind of event and we want to help Tijuana return to its hey day of being one of the prominent boxing city's of the world."
Between '08-'09, PM Promotions was responsible for an impressive rate of activity, putting on nearly twenty shows which included some of the biggest club level names in the city at the time such as Javier "Cobra" Mendoza, Jorge "Pantera" Silva and Juan Luis "Perla Negra" Hernandez among others.
Tickets priced at modestly at $10 and $20 dlls are available at the Perro Salado Billiards Hall, the offices of Box Latino and Hollywood Beauty Supply. All ages welcome
