Boxing returns to Santa Ana

By Gerardo Martinez

Looks like boxing is back at Santa Ana Star Casino in Bernalillo, N.M. Today, at a press conference held there, Golden Girl Promotions and Eagle Boxing unveiled a dynamite card to take place there on Aug. 14. In the main event, undefeated Four Corners fighter Thaddine Swift-Eagle Johnson (5-0, 5 KOs) will take on Mexico’s Karina Hernandez (6-3-1, 4 KOs) for a handful of featherweight titles, the WIBA and GBU belts being the most prominent. In the co-main, Albuquerque’s Victoria Cisneros (5-9-2, 1 KO) will get another chance at prominence when she takes on almost-former-Holly-Holm-opponent, Melissa Hernandez (12-2-2, 4 KOs), of Bronx, New York. They will fight for a minor belt.

The undercard is stacked with local talent. Duke City lightweight Fidel “The Atrisco Kid” Maldonado (3-0, 3 KOs), seen by many as the top prospect in N.M., will take on Colorado’s Travis Gurule (0-1) in a four-rounder, or less; Welterweight Josh “Pitbull” Torres (4-1-1, 3 KOs), also of Albuquerque, will go four with Albuquerque hard luck kid, Michael Coca-Gallegos (0-6); Staging yet another comeback, Santa Fe’s Bryan Garcia (7-18, 2 KOs) will move way up to lightweight to fight former Taos boxer Marcos Herrera (5-1-1, 1 KO), now fighting out of Arvada, Colo.; Albuquerque light-heavyweight Timmy Means (0-1) takes on Michael Montoya Jr. (3-2-1, 2 KOs), of Colorado Springs; and, in the opener, Albuquerque bantam Jazzma Hogue (0-0-1) fights Michele Montalbano (0-1), of Colorado.
