RISING STAR JOSESITO LOPEZ TO HEADLINE AGAINST ANTHONY MORA
LOS ANGELES, August 31 – It’s the last big card of the summer of 2009, and Thompson Boxing Promotions is bringing out the big guns on Friday, September 11th, as hot prospects Josesito Lopez, Patrick Lopez, Daniel Hernandez, Aaron Garcia, and Jesus Hernandez all return to action at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California, and they’re going to be “Locked and Loaded” for another night of exciting world-class boxing.
Tickets for “Locked and Loaded”, a six bout card of professional boxing presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions, are priced at $75, $45 and $30, and may be purchased by calling 714-935-0900.
In the eight round main event, hot junior welterweight prospect Josesito Lopez (25-3, 14 KOs) will return to action against always tough Anthony Mora (15-3, 10 KOs). Riverside’s Lopez has won three in a row since his controversial loss to Edgar Santana in 2008, and he is ready for another assault on the 140-pound elite. A Colorado native known as “The Matrix”, Mora has been in the ring with former world champion Randall Bailey, and he is eager to have the opportunity to start at new winning streak against Lopez.
In other action, junior welterweights Patrick “El Elegante” Lopez (15-2, 10 KOs) of Venezuela and Nelson Lara (15-2-2, 8 KOs) of Costa Rica will clash in an eight round battle, and with a combined 14 wins in their last 16 bouts, this one has the potential to steal the show this September.
That’s also the case in the eight round featherweight rematch between San Diego’s Aaron Garcia (9-1-1, 2 KOs) and Huntington Park’s Jesus “Pollo” Hernandez (8-0-1, 2 KOs). On June 12th, the two California standouts battled to a six round draw, and on September 11th they get the opportunity to settle their score.
South Gate lightweight Daniel “El Travieso” Hernandez (7-0, 4 KOs) steps back between the ropes as well on this talent-rich night, putting his undefeated record on the line against hard-nosed veteran Jose Alfredo Lugo (10-10-1, 5 KOs) of Los Mochis, Mexico.
Opening the “Locked and Loaded” event is a six round junior welterweight contest between Costa Mesa’s Raul Franco (22-6, 15 KOs) and Los Angeles’ Sergio Macias (14-17, 6 KOs).
