(San Diego) – With 2014 winding down, San Diego’s only California Boxing hall of fame promoter Bobby D. Presents is only gearing getting ready to present at least two more fight cards before the end of the year. The first is set for Friday, October 24th, at the new home for San Diego professional boxing, the Crowne Plaza Hanalei Hotel in Mission Valley. After capturing the interim WBC Latino junior welterweight title last February, undefeated local fan favorite Emmanuel “Renegade” Robles (11-0-1, 3KOs) returns home against the tough Carlos Valenzuela (6-1, 3KO) of Ciudad Obregon, Mexico, in the eight round main event.
Robles took hold of the aforementioned title with a come from behind split decision win over the much more experienced Olympian Yordenis Ugas. Robles was able to outwork the more technical Ugas and even managed to send him to the canvas in the fifth round. At the end there was no denying Robles in his hometown as he was awarded the win with scores of 97-92 and 95-94 while the third judge saw it for Ugas with a score of 96-93. Five months later Robles traveled to San Francisco, CA, to take on hometown fighter Jonathan Chicas. The underdog Robles proceeded to outbox Chicas and was able to punctuate with a win with a hard uppercut in the seventh that put Chicas on his back.
The Crowne Plaza Hotel is located at 2270 Hotel Circle North, San Diego. “San Diego Fights” is presented by Bobby D. Presents with Mossy Automotive Group, Pepsi, Everlast, Filippi’s Pizza Grotto, DGS Construction and Car Czar. Doors open at 6:30pm with the first punch thrown at 7:30pm.
