Serrano-Ambris headline OC card

The line-up for the inaugural opening night of Fight Club OC is set for February 24th in The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center is set. Matchmaker Whit Haydon has put together a bout card featuring six pro boxing bouts. In the main event, popular Southland jr welterweights do battle in an eight rounder. Hector Serrano 13-1, 5 KOs faces Aris Ambris (14-1, 8 KOs). Both share losses to the very tough southpaw Jose Reynoso in 2010 and will be fighting to see which will remain a player at the 140 pound weight.

Also scheduled are cruiserweight brawler Brent Urban (6-3, 4 KOs), who is set to meet Joseph Jones (4-3, 2 KOs) in a four rounder. Also former University of Miami running back Quadtrine Hill (3-1, 1 KO), now training out of the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, will face Arizona heavyweight Chad Davis.

Other bouts include undefeated and hot lightweight prospect Oscar Andrade, who will put his perfect 4-0, 2 KO record on the line against Manuel Delcid (4-5, 1 KO). Rounding out the seven bout card will the tough young 1-0 Garden Grove bantamweight Danny Roman .

After 26 years of fight action at the Irvine Marriott’s Battle In The Ballroom, it looks like the move of Orange County’s only fight series will not miss a beat. The new 1,500 seat venue The Hangar will feature some fan amenities normally only reserved for large arenas and stadiums: A 40’ video screen and digital projectors, a state of the art sound system, 12 person Luxury Suites that include all food and beverages, a 30’x30 lighting truss hung over the ring, a special VIP parking area and venue entrance, and a separate Happy Hour restaurant right next to The Hangar.

Announced just six weeks ago, the response to Fight Club OC has been huge with season seat renewals and new season seats orders up and eight of the ten all inclusive Luxury Suites already sold. Tickets are priced at $50, $45, and $40 and went on sale at, or by calling 949-760-3131.
