The City of Fallon, NV and Let’s Get It On Promotions are pleased to announce the sixth installment of “Fallon Fights – Rural Rumble” Saturday August 24th at the Churchill County Fairgrounds. Rural Rumble 2013 will feature world class professional boxing.
Undefeated Heavyweight prospect Ytalo Perea (4-0, 3 KOs) is scheduled to fight his first six-rounder on this year’s Rural Rumble. Hailing from Ecuador, Perea is was a 2012 Olympian for his native nation. He is now considered to be one of the top heavyweight prospects in the world. Perea is coming off of an exciting one-punch, first-round knockout over John Orr in New York City. This year in Fallon he will be tested against the tough and talented Avery Gibson (2-2-2, 1 KO) from Southern California. Although Perea is quickly becoming known for his early knockouts, Gibson has never been stopped, or knocked down in his career. Perea vs. Gibson is a heavyweight battle not to be missed.
Reno’s rising jr. flyweight star, Oscar Vasquez (4-1), returns to Fallon for the third straight year. Vasquez is coming off of a dominating performance over Don Jose in Sacramento in April. Oscar will be facing the tough Alejandro Solorio (4-7, 3 KOs) of Los Angeles. Despite his record, Solorio is one of the most feared flyweights in boxing. He has knockout power, and has never been stopped in his seven losses – many of which were very controversial split decisions. Vasquez vs. Solorio is scheduled for six rounds.
Carson City amateur boxer, Justin Benitez, will be making his professional debut at this year’s Rural Rumble. He will be facing James Jones (0-1) from Las Vegas. Jones is a professional MMA fighter turned boxer. Justin vs. Jones is scheduled for four rounds in the Jr. welterweight division.
Other bouts are currently being finalized.
Fallon Fights 2012 will once again be held outdoors at the Churchill County Fairgrounds – 325 Sheckler Rd. Gate opens at 6pm, first bell at 7.
More details to be announced soon.
