June 26th Salinas, CA Fox Sports 1 TV match ups announced
The Fox Sports 1 broadcast of Golden Boy Live will take place at The Storm House in Salinas, CA with Alan Sanchez (15-3-1 8KOs) of Fairfield, CA taking on Steve Claggett (21-3-1 14KOs) of Calgary, Alberta, Canada for IBA Americas welterweight title. The bout is a very good contest between two fighters at the same level and same spot in the welterweight division who are flirting with getting a major fight.
The co-main event will feature the Salinas transplant, Paul Mendez (17-2-2 8KOs), who trains with the Garcia’s in the aforementioned town, taking on David Lopez (41-15-1 23KOs). The fight will be a reintroduction for Mendez to general TV audience as his last major outing was against Louis Rose that ended in a draw.
The TV opener will feature San Jose 130 lbs. prospect, Andy Vences (11-0 7KOs) will take on Santiago Guevara (8-1 3KOs). Vences is currently riding a five fight knockout streak heading into this bout.
Oscar Godoy (13-4 6KOs) of Watsonville, CA will also be featured on the un-televised undercard. Godoy’s bout is close to be signed against a widely respected Bay Area boxer, but that particular fight is not official yet. Heavyweight Josue Lugo (debut) of Salinas, CA will take on Andrew Tinae (0-3) of San Ardo, CA. Super lightweight Oscar Rojas (0-2) of Salinas, CA will also be featured on the card as well.
The Tavarez brothers will also be in action in amateur bouts to start the evening of action as Pete Tavarez will face Alda Alfaro as well as Andy Tavarez versus Angel Alfaro
