Thompson Boxing Promotions

closes the year with “New Blood”



Orange, CA (October 21, 2011) – The new installment of the popular boxing series “New Blood” could easily be named “The Unbeaten” as five undefeated prizefighters will enter the boxing ring at put their perfect records on the line at the Doubletree Hotel Ontario on Friday Nov. 4.


Leading the cast of impressive boxers is Efrain Esquivias (14-0, 9 KOs) of Carson, CA, who is one of the fastest rising super bantamweights in the world. Mentored by world-class trainer Freddie Roach, the slick counter-puncher who trains out of the Wild Card Boxing gym and has beaten back every opponent so far in his young career will lock horns with Mexico’s Leopoldo Gonzales.


The rough and tough Leopoldo “Feroz” Gonzales (11-3, 7 KOs) of Ensenada, Mexico will go toe-to-toe with Esquivias who has proven adept at changing fight plans midway through each fight if necessary.


Tickets for “New Blood” are priced at $75, $45, and $30. They are available now and may be purchased by calling 714-935-0900.


Ontario’s Jonathan “Lil Thund’r” Arellano (10-0-1, 2 KOs) returns to the ring after a very brief time and finds hard-nosed youngster Jonathan Alcantara (4-5-2) of Novato, CA, ready to rumble in an eight round super bantamweight bout.


Arellano recently captured the vacant interim WBC Youth title with a riveting win over Michael Ruiz, Jr. this past September. He’s ready to go again. Just weeks ago Arellano was recognized by the city of Ontario where he resides.


Alcantara is a solid boxer who has fought some very gifted rising stars such as Efrain Esquivias and Michael Ruiz Jr. Having engaged in combat against opponents such as Esquivias and Ruiz, Jr. are the tell tale signs that show he can compete and be a dangerous foe.


Miguel Diaz (6-0, 3 KOs) returns once again from Allentown, PA to show off his skills in another six round super flyweight clash. This time it’s Felipe Castañeda (6-2-1, 3 KOs) of El Paso, TX that takes a shot at the young titan from back East.  


Castañeda hails from the Texas border town of El Paso and is coming off a big win over formerly undefeated Calvin Shepard of Dallas. Castañeda hopes a win over another undefeated boxer can catapult him to another level.


Female junior flyweight Sindy Amador (5-0) has blazed her way to five consecutive victories and looks for a sixth against Blanca Raymundo (0-4). It’s the second time they meet and though Raymundo has come up short in her past fights, all of her losses have been by narrow margins. Riverside’s Amador is looking to repeat her win against San Bernardino’s Raymundo but it won’t be easy in this four round competition.


In other bouts Sergio Nunez (3-0-1) battles veteran Robert “Scrappy” Ortiz (7-3-1) in a four round lightweight match; Middleweights Brandon Adams (3-0, 1KO) of Los Angeles and Jose Alvarez (1-0) of Fresno take to the canvas in a four round match up and Riverside’s Joshua Conley makes his pro debut against L.A. boxer Javier Albonica (1-1) in a four round welterweight showdown.


Bouts subject to change. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the first bell rings at 7:45 pm.  The Doubletree Hotel is located at 222 North Vineyard Avenue in Ontario. The hotel phone number is 909-937-0900.
