On Saturday at the Doubletree Hotel in Orange County, Thompson Boxing Promotions’ third annual “Night of Champions” event will be highlighted by a celebration of the career of former world junior lightweight champion Genaro “Chicanito” Hernandez as well as four live bouts. In the main event, Salinas’ Alejandro Perez (12-1-1, 7 KOs) takes on Victor “Tommy Gun” Martinez (14-4, 10 KOs) of Matamoros, Mexico in an eight round super bantamweight bout.
The co-feature will see unbeaten power hitter Danny Hernandez (3-0, 3 KOs) of Carson battling Reno’s Jaime Rodriguez (4-3-2, 2 KOs) in a four round lightweight scrap.
Boxing’s big men will also be in action, as somebody’s “0” must go when Riverside’s Hildo Silva (4-0-1, 1 KOs) collides with San Diego’s Marcus Dickerson (3-0, 2 KOs) in a four rounder, and opening up this special night of boxing will be a junior middleweight four rounder between Riverside’s Alberto Herrera and Pascagoula, Mississippi’s Brandon Harper, both of whom are making their pro debuts.
This night will also see Thompson Boxing Promotions giving back to a warrior who gave so much to the sport as they make a donation to Hernandez to aid in his brave fight against cancer.
Tickets and tables for “Night of Champions” are sold out. The Doubletree Hotel – Orange is located on 100 The City Drive South in Orange, California.
