First televised card of the year in LA

Big time boxing is back in the Los Angeles area Saturday as LA’s first big televised show on the year will be presented by Top Rank and televised on UniMas (formerly Telefutura) on their very popular “SOLO BOXEO” Tecate series at the C. Robert Lee Center in Hawaiian Gardens, CA. With super bantamweight bangers Chris Avalos (20-2, 15 KOs) and Jessie Magdaleno (13-0, 9 KOs) as headliners in separate bouts, fireworks are a certainty. Their respective opponents are Jose Luis Araiza (29-7-1, 22 KOs) and Leivi Brea (19-10-3, 10 KOs).

The 21-year-old Magdaleno, hailing from Las Vegas, and younger brother of world ranked Super Featherweight Diego Magdaleno is a southpaw with huge power in both fists will face off against Leivi Brea, and will be more than happy to test his opponent’s whiskers, as he looks to add another KO win to his ledger.

Avalos, hailing from Lancaster California, is looking to make an statement, as the sharp-shooter is coming off a unanimous decision over Yenifel Vicente last August. Avalos could easily be undefeated, as both of his losses came via tight-split decisions. An impressive outing would elevate the 23-year old fighter into possible title contention.

The rest of the card:

Michael Finney 9-0 (7KOs) Vs. Jesus Vallejo 5-8-1 (5KOs) in a 6 Round Welterweight bout.

Erik DeLeon 1-0 (1KO) takes on David Castillo 3-5 in a four round Lightweight fight.

Also featured will be KO artist, Light Heavyweight Trevor McCumby 9-0 (8KOs) along with Featherweight Toka-Kahn Clary 3-0-0-1 (2KOs), Featherweight Edgar Valero 2-0 (2KOs) and a pair of pro-debut fighters in Featherweight Pedro Duran and also Hawaiian Gardens own Super Lightweight Danny Ramirez.

The festivities begin at 6:30PM, doors open at 6:00PM

Tickets are priced at $30 and $50 dollars.

The C. Robert Lee Activities Center is located at: 21815 Pioneer Blvd, Hawaiian Gardens, CA 90716
