RICARDO “DINAMITA” ALVAREZ HEADLINES SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5 CARD IN MEXICO AGAINST HUMBERTO “METRALLETA” MARTINEZ

FOX DEPORTES AND TELEVISA TO AIR TRIPLEHEADER

LOS ANGELES, October 3 – Unbeaten in 12 of his last 13 bouts, Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez will represent his fighting family once again this Saturday, October 5, when he defends his WBA Continental Americas Super Lightweight Title against Colombia’s Humberto “Metralleta” Martinez in the 12-round main event of a Televisa and FOX Deportes-televised tripleheader entitled “DINAMITA PURA EN EL RING.”

In the co-featured bouts of the evening at Centro De Usos Múltiples Del Malecón in Ocotlan, Jalisco, Mexico, La Paz southpaw Ramon “Principe” Garcia takes on Venezuela’s Juan “Pequita” Lopez in a 10-round junior flyweight bout and undefeated Guadalajara prospect Jorge “Pilon” Lara meets Distrito Federal’s Oscar “Ceviche” Ibarra in a 10-round super bantamweight matchup.

This event is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and sponsored by Corona. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. CT and the first fight begins at 6:00 p.m. CT. The FOX Deportes broadcast will air live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT and the Televisa broadcast will air on Canal 5 beginning at 10:30 p.m. CT.

The brother of former world champions Canelo and Rigoberto Alvarez, 31-year-old Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez (21-2-3, 13 KO’s) is making his own way to the top, hoping to soon add another world title belt to the family trophy case. Winner of three straight, Alvarez most recently defended his WBC Continental Americas title in July with a 12-round decision win over Reyes Sanchez, and he will look to extend that string of excellence when he battles Martinez.

Monteria’s Humberto “Metralleta” Martinez (27-7-1, 21 KO’s) is a hard-hitting competitor who emerged from the ultra-tough Colombian fight circuit as one of the most dangerous 140-pound fighters in the world. Winner of seven of his last eight, Martinez has won 12 overall fights in three rounds or less, so you can expect him to be bringing the dynamite to “Dinamita” Alvarez this Saturday.

Former WBO Junior Flyweight World Champion Ramon “Principe” Garcia (18-4-1, 11 KO’s) has won two straight over Jose Martinez and Juan Hernandez since his loss to Roman Gonzalez in their 2012 title fight, making it clear that he’s in the midst of yet another run at the championship. But to get back into the title picture, the 31-year-old southpaw from La Paz must first turn back the challenge of Valle de Pascua, Venezuela’s Juan “Pequita” Lopez (10-2, 8 KO’s) a knockout puncher looking to add a big name to his promising resume.

Unbeaten in 24 professional fights, Guadalajara’s Jorge “Pilon” Lara (23-0-1, 16 KO’s) is the latest Mexican standout to hit the 122-pound weight class, and with four consecutive knockouts to his name, he’s attempting to make a statement with each victory. His opponent on Saturday, 27-year-old Oscar “Ceviche” Ibarra (27-9, 18 KO’s), has won several regional titles over the years, most recently a WBC Silver Championship that he successfully defended three times. Now he begins the road back to the top against Lara.
