Opening the 2017 edition of the popular LA FIGHT CLUB series on Feb. 3, San Antonio, TX’s Joshua “The Professor” Franco (8-0, 4 KOs) will take a critical step in his career in an eight-round super-flyweight main event battle against Ensenada, Mexico’s Victor “Dragon” Pasillas (8-6-2, 5 KOs) live from the Belasco Theater downtown Los Angeles and on Estrella TV Boxeo Estelar.
Also representing San Antonio, LA FIGHT CLUB favorite Hector “El Finito” Tanajara, Jr. (7-0, 4 KOs) will fight as the co-main event on Estrella TV against Coahuila, Mexico’s Baltazar Ramirez (3-2, 3 KOs) in a scheduled six-round lightweight bout. “El Finito” is coming off a unanimous decision victory after defeating Roy Garcia last September on the Canelo vs. Smith undercard at AT&T Stadium.
Opening up the televised portion, recently signed Golden Boy top prospect Ryan “Kingry” Garcia (7-0, 6 KOs) will look to continue his knock-out artistry when he steps into the ring for a scheduled six-round lightweight bout against a soon-to-be announced opponent. This will be “Kingry’s” second time under the Golden Boy banner and with three consecutive knoc outs under his belt, Garcia will give LA fight fans a show to remember.
As part of the Ring TV live stream, Edgar “Kid Neza” Valerio (9-0, 5 KOs) will return to his home stage at the Belasco after a six-round knockout of Guadalupe “Lupillo” De Leon in December 2016. Valerio is scheduled for a six-round featherweight contest against a soon-to-be named opponent.
Knock-out star and super lightweight David “June Bug” Mijares (4-0, 3 KOs) will go toe-to-toe in a six-round fight with Thomas “Animal” Herrera (8-16-1, 5 KOs).
