Thompson Boxing Promotions returns to the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California on February 22 with newly signed super bantamweight Christopher “Marvelous” Martin (25-2-3, 8 KOs) facing Mexican veteran Jose Angel Beranza (35-25-2, 27 KOs) in a fight set for eight rounds for the vacant WBC US title. For Martin it’s an opportunity for revenge as Beranza handed him his first career loss. “When Beranza and I last fought he surprised me with his timing. I expected him to come at me but I ended up having to chase him. He out boxed me and would hit and hold. I got frustrated. This time it’s going to be different. I have been working on sitting down on my punches. I got stoppages in my last two fights and feel confident in my ability to walk away with the win. We’re going to go hard for 8 rounds.”

In the co-main event the lanky welterweight Artemio “King” Reyes Jr. (18-2, 14 KOs) tangles with Rodolfo “Bam Bam” Armenta (12-9-1, 9 KOs) in a welterweight clash set for eight rounds.

Also, Colombian middleweight standout Alex “El Principe” Theran (10-0, 6 KOs) has an even match up against Hawaii’s Michael Balasi (10-1, 7 KOs) in a six round bout, super bantamweight Juan Reyes (8-1-1, 1 KO) faces TBA. Others include Giovanni Santillan (6-0, 4 KOs) vs. Michael Lucero (12-17-2, 4 KOs); Joshua Conley (4-0, 4 KOs) vs. Juan Carlos Rojas (4-4, 4 KOs); and Xavier Montelongo (2-0-1) vs. Pedro Toledo (1-0-1).

Tickets are priced at $75, $45, and $30. They are available now and may be purchased by calling 714-935-0900. Bouts subject to change. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the first bell rings at 7:30 pm.

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
