Boxing back in Studio City on August 11

On August 11, Goossen Tutor Promotions returns to the San Fernando Valley’s legendary Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City, CA, with a main event featuring 2008 U.S. Olympian Shawn Estrada (14-0, 12 KOs) squaring off with undefeated Felix Piedra (8-0-1, 5 KOs) in a scheduled 8-round light heavyweight contest. In other action, Leon Spinks, III (2-0, 1 KO) – grandson and great nephew of former Olympic champions and world heavyweight kings Leon and Michael Spinks, debuting Armenian heavyweight Sergo Pogosyan and jr featherweight KO artist Jessie Villanueva (3-0, 3 KOs) will face opponents to be named.

“We’re expecting another exciting night of boxing at ‘The Lodge’ on August 11,” promoter Dan Goossen said. “Shawn Estrada is a big puncher and once the bell rings he’s looking to land one bomb after another. Mention the name Leon Spinks, III, and it makes you want to see if he inherited the Spinks champion bloodlines. Heavyweights also have a way of getting fans excited, and it’s the same for me, with the debut of Pogosyan, along with Jessie Villanueva taking another step in his development.”
