Heavyweight Gary “Pit Bull” Gomez (19-10-1) faces Tacoma’s Jonte Willis (8-1) on August 12th at the Silver Reef Casino & Spa in Ferndale, Washington. The bout will be for the Washington state heavyweight title. Gomez is coming off two impressive performances against Mike Mollo and Val Tinajero while Willis suffered the first loss of his pro career in June. Looks like an interesting boxer/puncher stylistic matchup with the bobbing and weaving inside attack of Gomez trying to get inside the speed and boxing ability of Willis.
Also slated for action are local favorites Mike Gravonski, Rob Diezel, and Sylvester “Doc” Bartron in separate bouts.
Promoter and president of Ringside Ticket, Patrick Ortiz is putting together a first rate card to welcome boxing back to the Silver Reef after a year’s hiatus.
The fights kick off at 7:00 PM and Tickets start at $39.50 and can be purchased at the casino box office.
