There was a sold out crowd to watch an exciting night of fights. In the main event Ruben Ace Torres from South Central LA improved to 19-0 with 16 KOs with a 7 th round knockout of Cristian Baez of Venezuela. In a great back and forth war both fighters scored knockdowns in the second round. Torres scored the knockout in the 7th when
Baez disputed a knockdown earlier in the round and was caught with a tremendous left hook that knocked him out cold. Protect yourself at all times.
In the co-main event Louie Lopez from Corona, CA improved to 12-1-1 scored a unanimous decision victory over a tough and previously undefeated Elias Diaz. Most of the crowd was there to see the local fighter in his hometown.
In a battle of two unbeaten fighters Pedro Valencia from Pacoima, CA improved to 11-0 with a unanimous decision victory over Adrian Corona. Valencia used a lot of switching to the southpaw stance to get the decision. Nelson Oliva from Fontana, CA improved to 4-0 with 4 Kos with a 2 nd round knockout of Eduardo Reyes from Mexico. Ioannis Manoullidis originally from Athens, Greece improved to 2-0 with a split decision victory over Edgar Palacios
of Mexico. Anthony Saldivar from Ontario, CA opened the night with a unanimous decision victory over Antonio Duarte of Mexico.

Ryan Garcia returns in dramatic fashion overpowering Javier Fortuna. The fight was really never close as Garcia hit Fortuna early and often. Garcia was very gracious in victory, thanking God, and asking the audience to find their purpose in life. His purpose of course, is a pugilist at the highest level in boxing, where he destroys competition. The next chapter is what remains to be seen as Garcia called out Tank Davis in what presumably will have challenges to make, but one can only hope…..
