Reyes, Gonzalez headline Chihuahua

The Promociones del Pueblo card at the Gimnasio Rodrigo M. Quevado arena will feature a double billing, on Sept. 5, headlining undefeated Chihuahuan superwelter Marco “Dorado” Reyes (13-0, 12 KOs) and former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez (40-7, 34 KOs).

In the main event, Reyes will take on Colombian Beibi Berrocal (6-1, 6 KOs) for the WBC World Youth superwelterweight title. Staging a return from a devastating knockout loss at the hands of WBC 122-pound champ Toshiaki Nishioka in May, Gonzalez returns in a ten-rounder at featherweight to take on Jose “Pegono” Mendoza (21-3-2, 17 KOs), of Colombia.

Contenders Victor Zaleta (9-1, 5 KOs), of Chihuahua, and Javier “Zorro” Castro (20-2, 17 KOs), of Juarez, are also featured on the card. Zaleta, on the title path, will, in a rematch, defend his WBC Fecombox super flyweight belt against former champ Gilberto Keb Baas (28-19-3, 16 KOs), of Yucatan, Mexico.

Castro will go ten at superlightweight against Carlos Castillo (6-1 or 0-4) , of Torreon, Mexico.

The card also features the debut of flyweight Odilon Zaleta, brother to Victor, who will go six rounds against 48-fight veteran Alejandro “Apachito” Moreno (21-24-3, 10 KOs), of Juarez; and a six rounder at feather between Juarez’s Arturo Murillo (5-9) and Chihuahua’s Rafael Proano (1-0).
