Garcia-Odom II on May 6

In an intriguing rematch, Roberto “La Amenaza” Garcia (29-3, 21 KOs) of Texas will take on Calvin Odom (15-8, 11 KOs) of Southern California on May 6th at the Quiet Canyon in Montebello, California in an eight round junior middleweight main event. Ed Holmes’ AllStar Boxing will promote the event. Odom handed the now 31-year-old Garcia his first loss of his career 8 years ago in Garcia’s native Texas. Garcia will now seek to get his revenge in Odom’s backyard. A major advantage for Garcia this time around will be activity in the ring. Garcia has remained fairly active of late where Odom hasn’t fought in five years with some of his inactivity attributed to an incarceration. That being said the still young 29-year-old Odom has nothing to lose per promoter Ed Holmes. “I give a lot of credit to Garcia for taking this fight because all the pressure is on him. A loss will set him way back but I have the contracts signed by both fighters now and we have a fight. Tickets are already available,” said Holmes. For ticket information call 323 816 6200.
