Rios to headline in Primm!

By Francisco Salazar

Featherweight contender Orlando Salido will not fight on the Saturday, May 16th Top Rank card at the Buffalo Bill’s Star Arena in Primm, NV. Instead, the main event will be Brandon Rios (19-0-1, 13 KO’s) of Oxnard, CA taking on Jose Antonio Izquierdo (17-4-1, 14 KO’s) in a 10 round lightweight bout. Rios is coming off a fifth round knockout over Carlos Guevara in December, while Izquierdo was stopped by Alex De Jesus in October. Also on the card will be unbeaten Welterweight Vanes Martirosyan taking on Juan Astorga. The bouts will be televised on Azteca America.
