Under Dawgs Boxing LLC is proud to present Dawg Fights II: Return of the Hebrew Hammer on Saturday, September 3rd at the Glitter Dome located at 3600 Wynkoop in Downtown Denver.
The show is clearly coming into focus as the fight approaches. The main event will feature newly signed Under Dawgs boxer, undefeated southpaw, “Dynamite” Donald Cobb taking on his toughest opponent to date in grizzled Colorado veteran, Joey “Beast” Montoya in an 8 round Colorado Super Fight which will have both the RMB Regiona as well as the RMB Colorado Champion belts on the line!
Cobb is 7-0 with 6 clips, but, let’s face it, he is yet to be truly tested. When most companies sign an undefeated prospect, they give him some ‘ducks’ to warm up. Under Dawgs wants to see exactly what they have in Cobb, so they have put him in the toughest fight of his young career.
The challenge comes in the form of one Joey “Beast” Montoya from Colorado Springs. Montoya, 9-4-3, 3KOs, has been around the proverbial ‘block’ in boxing. His 4 losses each came to an undefeated prospect type of fighter. His last two fights have been against 7-0 and 5-0 and now he steps to 7-0 once again. He is NOT afraid of a challenge and even fought on the now defunct ‘BKB Boxing’ shows.
Cobb is managed by Alan White and trained by former heavyweight pro, Chris Green. The backstory to this fight includes the fact that Joey Montoya beat Chris Green in a heavyweight bout back in 2012. I’m sure his young charge has revenge for coach on his mind.
Montoya is trained and managed by his father Mike Montoya Sr. who is very well respected in Colorado and know for bringing his fighters in tip top shape. This will be Montoya’s first fight at the light heavyweight limit of 175 pounds, so we KNOW Joey will be 100%.
The co main event is also a title fight. It is a six rounder for the RMB Colorado’s Champion belt at the lightweight limit of 135 pounds. This fight pits hot on the market prospect and power puncher Gregorio ‘Bebe’ Perez fighting Colorado Springs, Ruben Jacoby.
Perez is 3-1 with 1 knockout. His only loss coming to undefeated prospect Trevon Coleman whom he fought in Coleman’s backyard Nebraska. Perez disputes the loss, but, has moved on. In Perez’ last fight he was heard telling his opponent, whom he had busted up, “Don’t you quit on me. Finish the FIGHT! Perez is self managed and trained by Thomas Chmeielewski and is infamous for never putting on a shirt! Hey Ladies!
Jacoby is 5-4 with 2 knockouts and is coming in on the heels of his biggest win to date, a decision over once promising Tommy Atencio. As a matter of fact he is riding a 4 fight winning streak, meaning his record once stood at 1-4. He’s a warrior with no quit in him. He is trained and managed by his father Robert Jacoby.
The special attraction bout for this show is the heavyweight showdown between “The Hebrew Hammer” Andy Klein as he faces off with “El Pastor” Juan Romero. Klein is a highly successful real estate developer who simply has a love for boxing. He wants to get one last fight in so his children and see him and of course, get his mug on some posters and such. He had some amateur experience having gone tooth and nail with Terence Perro in the Golden Glove, even putting Perro on his pockets. He is 1-1, 1KO as a professional.
Juan “El Pastor” Romero is a family man and farmer aka Caballero who is as rugged as they come. Romero, who was recently married, is trained by former world title contender Donald Camarena at the TLC gym in Denver. Romero is 1-0, 1KO and there is no doubt Camarena will have him ‘in the pink’ for his fight.
Undercard action should be interesting as well with evenly matched fights including a heavyweight tilt between Bubba “Kansas Savage” Grant and Rudy “Phatsoe” Zapata. Grant is 1-1 with 1KO and he trains out of the Grudge Training center with Jake ‘Ja-Kobe’ Ramos who is proven. Zapata trains out of TLC with the aforementioned Camarena. We have ‘the rematch’ scheduled between Steve “Sugar Bear” Victor and Chris “Brave Heart” Arguello. The first fight ended in a majority draw and they will look to settle the score. Shawn Cooper, who trains with Rolando Lopez will be fighting pro debuter Chad Ingmire who hails from Wyoming and is trained by bare knuckle and Irish Martial Arts legend Corey ‘Whiz Kid’ Williams. When Williams vs Cooper was not approved by the Colorado Boxing Commission, Williams found a suitable opponent to take his place, keeping Cooper on the card.
Under Dawgs Boxing is trying hard to help Tommy Rogue make his pro debut, but finding opponents willing to face him has been an uphill battle. According to Rogue’s trainer, Charles Leverette, who also trains the “Who can Mexican” Sammy Vasquez, Rogue is well seasoned from his amateur career which included “Former All Marine Boxer, World Military Championship medalist, and had 100+ amateur bouts.” I was told by some that it wasn’t smart listing Rogue’s accomplishments while trying to find him a fight. We will not bullshit anyone to make fights. Last thing we want is someone telling us after their fight “You lied to me”. Not happening on an Under Dawgs show, period. New Breed Boxing starts here.
The biggest disappointment thus far has come from trying to match Deane Williams, who has begged for a fight. We matched him with Isaac Atencio, Atencio pulls out. We match Williams with Reyes Diaz and Williams pulls out. We were unable to find an opponent by the 2pm deadline given to us, so we are unable to put Diaz on, unfortunately.
Under Dawgs has also met with Roman Perez from Champions Boxing LLC and we will be helping him move his fighters into the professional ranks beginning with Antonio Flores who just won the Ringside World Tournament.
We will also feature award winning Belly Dancer extraordinaire Taka Carnes in our halftime show! Se more here: Taka Carnes Wins in Florida. In addition the beneficiary of our Raffle will be Gabriel Montoya, a young boxer from Wyoming recently diagnosed with Leukemia. A portion of the VIP table revenue will go to Montoya to help with his expenses. And we can’t forget our ‘Belt Presenter’ Leah’s Fight. Leah has beaten cancer and she puts the belts on the boxers when they win.
Dawg Fights II: Return of the Hebrew Hammer is set for Saturday September 3rd at the Glitter Dome located at 3600 Wynkoop in Downtown Denver. Door open at 6pm with the first bell at 7:30 sharp. Limited tickets are still available by calling 720-231-7724.
