News: Dominic Breazeale; Mariana Juarez; Amanda Serrano
Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale’s (2-0, 2 KO’s) return to the ring will be a little longer than anticipated. The 2012 U.S. Olympic super heavyweight was scheduled to fight on the undercard of the Leo Santa Cruz vs. Alberto Guevara world title bout at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena which would have been broadcasted live on CBS. Breazeale handled himself how every young prospect should and prepared himself for the fight on a week’s notice. He stayed busy immediately following his last outing and showed up to the weigh-in in great shape.
Unfortunately, his opponent didn’t arrive until four hours after report time and the California State Athletic Commission decided to cancel the bout. Breazeale is disappointed about the decision but clearly understands that the commission had no other alternative.
“It’s unfortunate that my bout was cancelled, however, I accept the commission’s decision and will continue to prepare myself for my next bout. It is an emotional roller coaster as it’s just one of those thing’s where I’m training and preparing mentally for the fight and it’s suddenly cancelled. My trainer John Bray and I will go back to the drawing board and continue to prepare myself for the next opportunity”, Breazeale said.
“I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
MARIANA JUAREZ RETURNS AGAINST TENKAI TSUNAMI ON DECEMBER 15 IN THE FOX DEPORTES MAIN EVENT
RISING STAR BRUNO SANDOVAL TO FACE ALBERTO MARTINEZ IN CO-FEATURE FROM GUADALAJARA, JALISCO, MEXICO
LOS ANGELES, December 14 – Two of female boxing’s best, Mexican star Mariana “Barbie” Juarez and Japan’s Tenkai Tsunami, will take center stage at the Arena Coliseo in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico on Saturday, December 15 for a clash of former world champions to be featured on FOX Deportes in the United States.
Plus, highly-regarded middleweight prospect Bruno “Tiburon” Sandoval faces a tough task in his 12 round WBC USNBC title defense against Alberto “La Mosca” Martinez.
Juarez vs. Tsunami, a 10 round super flyweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and is sponsored by Corona. The FOX Deportes broadcast will air on Sunday, December 16 at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT.
A boxing beauty who knocks opponents out in the ring with her fists and everyone else outside of it with her looks, Mariana Juarez (35-6-3, 16 KO’s) is considered by many to be the greatest female fighter ever produced by Mexico. She is a former WBC world champion who held her crown for over three years and made 14 defenses before losing the belt to Ava Knight in October. The 32-year-old Juarez, who has also appeared in the Mexican edition of Playboy magazine, will begin her comeback on December 15 and is determined to wear championship gold again.
Tokyo’s Tenkai Tsunami (18-5, 7 KO’s) is no stranger to fighting elite competition, as she held the WBA world championship at super flyweight from 2009 to 2012, defending the title four times. In 2012, the seven-year veteran and Japanese female boxing pioneer fell short of victory in bouts against Naoko Yamaguchi and Janeth Perez, but she can end the year on a high note with a win over Juarez.
Unbeaten in 10 professional fights, Bruno “Tiburon” Sandoval (10-0, 9 KO’s) is a hard-hitting and exciting up-and-comer who has become a specialist in the art of the knockout. A pro since 2011, Sandoval has ripped through his opposition, going the distance just once, against 4-0 Eduardo Tercero in 2011. On November 3, Sandoval met Tercero a second time and in the rematch, he knocked his foe out in the fifth round to win the vacant WBC USNBC title that he will defend this weekend.
23-year-old Alberto “La Mosca” Martinez (20-7, 12 KO’s) has kept a busy schedule since his debut in 2009 and in 2012 alone he has already stepped into the ring eight times. Currently riding a three-fight winning streak that includes an October technical knockout win over Alberto Gutierrez, the native of Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, Mexico is prepared for a tough battle on Saturday against Sandoval.
