Antonio "Tony the Tiger" Espinosa, 8-0, 1 KO will be looking to add his 4 th win since signing a promotional deal with KEA Boxing. Espinosa is a slick boxing southpaw who is a hot prospect. He will be locking horns with a tough opponent in Edward Valdez, 3-4-2, 2 KO's who sports a deceiving record.
