Welterweight Jorge “Maromerito” Paez (35-4-1, 21 KOs) will take on Rodolfo “Rudy” Quintanilla (13-2-3, 10 KOs) in the ten round main event on Saturday night in the Arena Tecate located in the parking of the Agua Caliente Racetrack in Tijuana.

“I had a great preparation,” Quintanilla at Thursday’s press conference. “We are ready to face a great fighter like Paez in an important place like Tijuana where there are people who know boxing and like fights with a lot of action like we’re going to give them. I’ve seem Paez many times and we’re going to surprise him and win this fight.”

Quintanilla had the press all to himself as Paez wasn’t in attendance.

In other featured bouts, bantamweight Alejandro “Cobrita” Gonzalez (19-0-2, 13 KOs) faces “Tiger” Cayetano (15-1-0, 7 KOs) in a ten rounder and super lightweight Darío “Sargento” Garibay (7-0-1, 6 KOs) meets Abner Lopez (13-3-0, 12 KOs) in an eight rounder.
