After an impressive knockout victory on the undercard of Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins’ final fight, South Central’s Ivan “Striker” Delgado (11-0-1, 4 KOs) has upped the ante in taking on a bigger challenge in the always rugged Charles Huerta (18-5, 11 KOs) of Paramount, CA for an eight round super featherweight main event Friday, April 14 live from the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles and on Estrella TV’s Boxeo Estelar.
Huerta will be coming to make war, as his last appearance on the same card of Hopkins-Smith, Jr. was a slugfest against Carlos Morales where he lost via split decision for the WBA-NABA super featherweight title.
Making his second LA FIGHT CLUB appearance of 2017, undefeated San Diego, CA native Genaro “El Conde” Gamez (4-0, 3 KOs) will take on a soon to be announced opponent in the televised six round super lightweight co-main event. For the first time in his career, Gamez went the distance in his previous fight with a unanimous decision victory defeat over Alejandro Ochoa in February.
Opening up the Boxeo Estelar telecast and making his LA FIGHT CLUB debut, Manny “Chato” Robles, Jr. (11-0, 4 KOs) will be combating a soon to be announced opponent for a six round featherweight match. The featherweight prospect will be presenting his inherited skill, and is trained by one of boxing’s highly respected trainers who doubles as his father – Manny Robles. He will be returning to the ring after winning via unanimous decision against Argentine veteran Claudio Rosendo Tapia last year July.
Fan favorite and LA FIGHT CLUB regular Pablo “The Shark” Rubio, Jr. (8-0, 3 KOs) of Los Angeles will open up the night in a six round super bantamweight bout against an opponent to be announced shortly. Fighting for the first time this year, Rubio, Jr. was last seen in November winning by way of unanimous decision over Francisco “Panchito” Dominguez.
