23-year-old Andrew Cancio (11-1-2, 11 KO’s) has yet to go the distance in any of his professional victories and he’s not about to start now. Winner of three in a row since his lone professional loss in 2008 to Carlos Vinan, Cancio needed just four rounds to knock out Lowell Brownfield at Fantasy Springs in August. He battles Ciudad Obregon’s Fernando Carcamo (9-2, 6 KO’s) who is sporting a winning streak of his own, having put together five straight victories, and plans to keep his streak intact on Friday night.
Coachella’s popular Angel Osuna (6-3-1, 5 KO’s) is back and will be looking for a knockout once again when he takes on Riverside’s John Worthy (1-1) in a four round junior middleweight contest.
Unbeaten junior welterweights will take to the ring as well, when Palm Springs’ own Kenny Williams (2-0, 1 KO) battles Los Angeles’ Joaquin Chavez (1-0, 1 KO) in what promises to be an intriguing four round fight.
A four round junior lightweight battle pitting Pasadena’s Osman Rivera (0-1) against Santa Ana’s Jose Garcia (0-1) will also be featured , as will Reno flyweight Oscar Vasquez (1-0) meeting Vicente Medellin (0-1) of Riverside in a four round contest.
