Contender “Tino” Avila returns Thursday on the east coast
Former regional titleholder Manuel “Tino” Avila will return on Thursday, November 30th at MGM National Harbor, Oxon Hill, Maryland against Raul Hidalgo. Avila, who now trains at FightKore International in Martinez, CA, is looking to return from his first career loss against Joesph Diaz Jr last May.
Avila was supposed to return on the Jorge Linares vs. Luke Campbell fight, but his opponent failed a blood test with less than 24 hours prior to the fight leaving him without an opponent.
The card is headlined by Lamont Roach Jr, who is from the Washington D.C., Maryland area and will be broadcast on ESPN2. No word on if Avila will be televised on ESPN2.
