The undefeated super bantamweight Emilio "Milo-Time" Colon-Garcia is the main event and is trained by Andy Soto. The humble Garcia has become quite the local favorite and a star in and out of the ring. "Milo-Time" looks to improve his record to 4-0. The Co-Main Event is the relentless undefeated junior welterweight, Victor "El Nino" Castro trained by Eric Hernandez. He is also looking to improve his record to 4-0.
Light Welterweight Luis "The Magician" Olivares, trained by Rob Garcia is a 2010 USA National Bronze Medalist, 2011 USA National Silver Medalist, 2011 USA Olympic Team Trials competitor, Golden Glove State & Regional Champion, and winner & champion of numerous state tournaments. Olivares is known for his speed, his wicked left hook, his aggressiveness inside the ring, and his humble demeanor outside the ring. "The Magician" plans to make a powerful impact in the light welterweight division. Ritchie Guerrero is a Silver Gloves National Champion. With just over 100 amateur fights, Guerrero is ready for the pros and to make his mark in the welterweight division. He is trained by Alan Viers, whom also trains Jesus "El Martillo" Gonzales.
Marcos "Nightmare" Diaz, banger Tony Moreno, and a former amateur standout and sensational prospect, Abel Ramos. Ramosis a 2010 State and Regional Champion, 2010 USA Boxing State and Regional Champion, USA Boxing National Bronze Medalist, and USA vs Puerto Rico International Duel Champion.
As a bonus, the night will open with two top amateur bouts. The first fight features the much anticipated rematch of the 2011 Fight of the AZ Golden Gloves, Roderick Flores vs Freddie Cintora.
The second amateur fight will feature our first ever GIRL BOUT! Sulem Ubrina vs TBD. She hails from Phoenix and is 21 yrs. old. Urbina trains at the KO Gym in Phoenix and has been boxing for over 4 years and has an amatuer record of 25-5. Urbina says she has to travel to different states such as California, Florida, Texas to name a few to find fights, and also said there are very few women fighters in the Phoenix area to match up against. Many of you may remember the original KO Gym was destroyed by a storm recently but has returned to a new location at 16th St. and Grant in Phoenix. The boxing community stepped up on this one and KO Gym is grateful to all that made this possible.
