The action doesn’t stop there, as a six-round lightweight match up will see Coachella’s Jose Vargas (6-1-2) battle Pacoima’s Oscar Chinchilla (2-1-1), East Los Angeles’ Andres Reyes (3-1-2) takes on unbeaten San Diegan Emmanuel Robles (3-0, 1 KO) in a four round junior welterweight fight, promising middleweight Ray Rivera (1-0, 1 KO) faces Cleven Ishe (3-2, 1 KO) in a four round battle of Los Angeles natives and Alex Vlas (0-1) of Laguna Hills faces Nicholas Balestra (0-1) of Sacramento in a four round junior middleweight bout.

 

Fans in attendance will have a chance to meet heavyweight legend Evander Holyfield as he hosts a special meet-and-greet from 7:30pm – 8:30pm PT inside the arena.

 

Mora vs. Flores, a 10 round middleweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate and AT&T.  Doors open at 6:00pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:30pm PT.  The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 12:30am ET/PT (11:30pm CT).

One of the most decorated amateurs to emerge from California in recent years, 20-year-old Hugo “The Boss” Centeno (9-0, 6 KO’s) collected 90 wins and earned championships in the National Silver Gloves, the National PAL tournament and in the Junior Olympics before turning professional in 2009. After blasting through his first six foes in less than a round each, Centeno has shown off his boxing skills in decisioning his next three opponents, but he plans on getting back to his knockout ways when he meets Hopkins, Minnesota’s Hector Orozco (4-8) on Friday.

 

Tecate, cerveza con carácter, is the largest beer brand to sponsor boxing matches in the U.S. Part of its commitment to make boxing accessible to consumers is the title sponsorship of “Sólo Boxeo Tecate,” which creates an opportunity for local fans to witness some of the most exhilarating fights by today’s up-and-coming prospects.  Additionally, Tecate has been a primary supporter of Golden Boy Promotions’ marquee events since 2007, and has launched a variety of initiatives to ensure consumers are part of the boxing experience, including boxer autograph signing sessions, commemorative cans, PPV mail-in rebate offers, and most recently the launch of a mobile museum “Tecate Museo de Boxeo,” which showcases decades of the most memorable moments in the sport.
