Arguably the hardest working promoter in Tijuana, Guillermo Mayen and his company Mayen Promotions, having been consistent for nearly twenty-four months putting on monthly shows on his own or with help from the biggest Latin American promoter, Zanfer Promotions. Wednesday night, June 19th, Mayen will present a fight card at the home of local boxing, Las Pulgas nightclub, on his own but he has an ace up his sleeve when featured in the main event is his most popular fighter, talented flyweight Kenia Enriquez (6-0, KOs) when she faces the experienced Gloria “Bombita Sexy” Salas (3-7-1, 1KO) of California, in a six rounder.
The nineteen year old Kenia, a stellar amateur that represented her state twice at the Mexican national tournament, is coming off completely destroying her toughest opponent on paper, Rosa “Vaquerita” Diaz, who at the time of their bout was undefeated in four fights. Enriquez dispatched her in less than a minute.
Now Mayen has opted to match her against an experienced fighter, the twenty-eight year old Salas, who has five more professional bouts than Enriquez. Sales will be going up to visit the flyweight weight limit and is coming off losing her last three although against tough opposition such as Sindy Amador, Amaris Quintana and the world champion Ava Knight who stopped her in one.
Also featured on the card will be popular Tijuana fighters Heriberto “Tremendo” Delgado (6-0, 3KOs), Erick “Estrella” Martinez (4-0-1, 2KOs) and Julio Robles (1-0).
Two more fights flesh out the card.
Tickets are still available at the ticket box office of Las Pulgas nightclub located on the historic Avenida Revolucion in downtown Tijuana. Doors open at 7pm with the first punch thrown at 8pm.
