“Night of Prospects” This Thursday

For over 30 years promoter Bobby DePhilippis of “Bobby D Presents” has been bringing the best in boxing to San Diego and the June 4th card put together by legendary matchmaker Jorge Marron is no exception. This Thursday local jr welterweight knockout artist Antonio Orozco (2-0, 2 KOs) takes on Antonio Soria (2-4, 2 KOs) in the main event of the “Night of Prospects” at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in San Diego. In a special feature attraction, Amaris “La Reina” Quintana (1-0) battles once beaten Melissa McMorrow (3-1) in flyweight contest. Quintana, who was a 2008 Women’s National Championship semifinalist, was showered with dollar bills in the ring after her sensational pro debut win over Gloria Salas in April. McMorrow is the 2007 Northern California Golden Gloves champion and a former Brazilian soccer player who promises to go toe-to-toe with Quintana. Three other bouts showcasing top local prospects including super featherweight Pablo “El Bronco” Armenta, welterweight Jesse “El Caballo” Isais and jr middleweight Erin “Dead End” Beach round out the card. Tickets are available at the Four Points Sheraton gift store (858-277-8888) or call 619-420-8866. Happy hour is from 5 to 7pm. Doors open at 6pm and the first bout is at 7:30pm.
