Local Turf Wars Added To “Hollywood Fight Night” Undercard March 14th

Known for their innate ability to match styles and fighters that delight both boxing purists and the casual fight fan, Art of Boxing Promotions and Bash Boxing have continued the trend by adding two Super Bantamweight tilts featuring four fighters local fighters to this Thursday’s HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT at the FLORENTINE GARDENS.

In a potential 6 round thriller, hard-hitting Hollywood resident and former NABO Bantamweight Champion, Khabir “The Crazy Russian” Suleymanov (13-3, 6KOs) will face off against Carson’s Raymond “Bad Boy” Chacon (4-5). Chacon, a former local prep standout in baseball, basketball, and football training out of The Rock in Carson, has never been stopped in 9 professional fights where even his losses against undefeated prospects Erik Ruiz (7-0) and Manual Avila (11-0) have been tight affairs with decisions that could have gone either way. Suleymanov, who has been in the ring with world class opponents such as Chris Avalos (21-2) and World Title Challenger Alberto Guevara (16-1), will look to end a two-fight losing streak with new trainer, Phil Paulina from New York City Boxing Club in Woodland Hills.

The young pride of Robert Garcia Boxing Academy, Erik Ruiz (7-0, 3KOs) will make his fourth appearance at HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT with his toughest challenge to date in Maywood “Bad Boyz” Boxing Club’s Oscar Venegas (3-1, 2KOs). Venegas, the proud son of two Mexican parents from Sonora and Zacatecas, hopes to fulfill his early promise as a standout amateur and hand Ruiz his first loss as a professional. Ruiz, who hails from a boxing family that includes fellow undefeated Top Rank welterweight boxing prospect Andrew Ruiz (6-0, 4KOs), looks to continue to climb the ranks of the Super Bantamweight division with his first six rounder.
