Bobby D. Presents in association with Jorge Marron Productions offer their second fight night of the year with “Turf War: San Diego vs. Calexico” on Thursday, April 8th , at the Four Points by Sheraton in Kearny Mesa, a suburb of San Diego, CA. In the main event, undefeated Christopher “SD Kid” Martin (16-0, 5KO) will defend his California State Bantamweight title against hard hitting Ruben “Finito” Lopez (15-11-2, 13KO) of Calexico, CA, in an eight round bout.
Martin is coming a very impressive stoppage of the previously undefeated Eduardo Arcos of Tijuana, MX, in his last showing in November of last year while Lopez has not fought since 2008 when he defeated Sergio Ruiz via first round KO in Mexicali, MX.
In the semi main event, La Mesa, CA’s Amaris “La Reyna” Quintana (2-0-1) will face off against Melissa McMorrow (3-1-2) in their much anticipated rematch of their war which they waged in June of last year. After four all action rounds, both women walked away with a draw. This time the Quintana-McMorrow light flyweight bout will be fought up to six rounds.
In a rare showing of heavyweights in southern California, Charles Tucker of San Diego, CA, will be making his professional debut against the cagey Anthony Moonie (2-1), also of San Diego in a four rounder while super featherweight Artur Bernetsyan (1-0) will go after his second win against the always dangerous TBA.
One more bout fleshes out the five fight night.
