An already jam packed card just got bigger for Fight Night @ Sportsmen’s Lodge this Saturday, September 19, 2015 in Studio City, California.
As part of Top Rank’s Solo Boxeo Tecate on Unimas televised portion, undefeated Super Featherweight prospect Pedro “Lil Pete” Duran (11-0, 8Kos) will face off against Mexico’s Erick Orozco (5-2-2, 3KOs) in the TV opener.
The Duran vs. Orozco 6 round bout will support the televised Main Event between former WBA Super Featherweight World Title challenger Jose Felix Jr. (30-1-1, 24KOs) and the Dominican Republic’s Marcos “El Tigre” Jimenez (20-4, 13KOs).
Also added to the FIGHT NIGHT @ SPORTSMEN’S LODGE card will be rising Wildcard Boxing Club Light Middleweight Urmat Ryskeldiev (10-3-1, 6KOs) taking on tough Cuban import Yusmani Abreu (4-11-2). The two additions bring this Saturday’s stacked card to a total of ten professional boxing bouts featuring some of Top Rank’s finest World Class prospects as well as Southern California’s fast-rising newcomers.
A special 6:30pm First Bout time has been implemented to ensure fans will see all 10 bouts yet still have time to experience the post show after party at River Rock Lounge, the upscale-casual lounge with old-fashioned Hollywood flair inside the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel and Event Center.
In other featured bouts, a trio of eight rounders will kick off the card. Former IBF Lightweight World Title challenger Lenny Zappavigna (33-2, 23KOs) and new Freddie Roach trainee will try to impress in his debut bout since signing with Top Rank as he takes on Mexico’s Roman “Nino de Oro” Ayala (23-4-1, 11KOs). Olympic Bronze Medalist Oleksandr Gvozdyk (6-0, 5KOs) faces off against Mexican knockout artist Francisco “Panchito” Sierra (27-8-1, 24KOs). And Light Heavyweight Trevor McCumby (19-0, 15KOs) will try to make it a perfect 20 wins in 20 professional bouts as he takes on Brian Holstein (10-2, 7KOs).
Rounding out the card will be a group of popular local boxers as fan favorite Arnold Barbosa (8-0, 2KOs), Wildcard Boxing Club’s Brian Flores (1-0, 1KO), and Sheer Sports’ Edwin Sandoval (4-0, 3KOs) look to build on their undefeated records. In addition, Fight Night @ Sportsmen’s Lodge will mark the professional debuts of San Pedro’s Garrity McOsker. McOsker, a recent graduate of the University of Notre Dame, was a member of the Fighting Irish Rugby team and Captain of the boxing team.
