LOS ANGELES, October 1 - A world-class talent who is making his mark in the welterweight division, unbeaten Danny "Swift" Garcia has passed each of his fistic tests with flying colors. On Friday, October 8, at The Arena (formerly The New Alhambra) in Philadelphia, the hometown hero will step up to the next level of his career when he takes on former world title challenger "Mighty" Mike Arnaoutis in the ten round main event of TeleFutura's "Sólo Boxeo Tecate"..

A proud native of Philadelphia, 22-year-old Danny Garcia (18-0, 12 KO's) came into the professional fight game in 2007 with high expectations and he has so far lived up to all the hype thanks to his prodigious talent and perfect record. In 2010, Garcia has upped the ante, defeating Ashley Theophane, Christopher Fernandez and Jorge Romero in successive bouts, setting the stage for his biggest fight to date against Arnaoutis

Athens, Greece native Mike Arnaoutis (22-6-1, 10 KO's) first made his mark on the junior welterweight division in 2004 when he battled to an entertaining draw with future World Champion Juan Urango. He's kept fans cheering ever since then, having battled with the cream of the 140-pound crop, including Kendall Holt, Ricardo Torres, Victor Ortiz, Jesse Feliciano and Delvin Rodriguez. Eager to get back into the title hunt, Arnaoutis will put everything on the line to come out victorious on October 8 in what can surely be described as a crossroads fight for him.

Tecate, cerveza con carácter, is the largest beer brand to sponsor boxing matches in the U.S. Part of its commitment to make boxing accessible to consumers is the title sponsorship of "Sólo Boxeo Tecate," which creates an opportunity for local fans to witness some of the most exhilarating fights by today's up-and-coming prospects. Additionally, Tecate has been a primary supporter of Golden Boy Promotions' marquee events since 2007, and has launched a variety of initiatives to ensure consumers are part of the boxing experience, including boxer autograph signing sessions, commemorative cans, PPV mail-in rebate offers, and most recently the launch of a mobile museum "Tecate Museo de Boxeo", which showcases decades of the most memorable moments in the sport.
