Leija Battah Promotions: “River City Rumble” Official Weigh In Photos

Joseph Rios vs Juan LeijaPhotos by Adrian Hernandez – On Thursday, December 20th, all fighters scheduled to compete on Leija Battah Promotions’ “River City Rumble” fight card at La Villita participated in the customary pre-fight weigh-in media event.

While the opposing fighters were ostensibly anxious to contend in the December 21st battle, the qualifying pugilists displayed professionalism and sportsmanship while facing off for the attending media.

The only unfortunate surprise during the traditional weigh-in ceremony came from Junior Middleweight Corey Randall of Leija’s ChampionFit Gym.

The powerful fighter was slated to make his long awaited professional debut on the stacked fight card but was scratched by the Texas Department of Regulations after weighing in five pounds over the restrictive Junior Middleweight limit.

Eight exciting match-ups will still be showcased at La Villita Assembly Hall. Doors open at 6PM with an actual start time of 6:30PM.
