Fights next Saturday in Pleasanton, Luis Garcia, Prenice Brewer top card

Promoter Mike Bazan’s Squarevision Entertainment returns to one of the promotion trademark venues, the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA, as Square Warriors super lightweight champion Luis “Vicious” Garcia of Richmond, Ca looks to avenge his draw against Jhonathan Zamudio in an eight-round title fight on April 21st.

The first bout saw Garcia get dropped by Zamudio with Garcia fighting back to earn a draw in the bout. Garcia has stated that at that point his career he wasn’t focused and wasn’t training like a pro athlete, he is now training with Kris “Lightning” Lopez at his gym in Oakland, CA and says things are much different. 

Zamudio, who last fought Eddie Diaz to a draw in a brutal affair that saw Zamudio bleeding badly. The fight left Zamudio out of action for essentially a year and he is now looking to make a statement. Zamudio looked as good as he ever had in his last performance and is training at Hit Fit SF for this rivalry with regional title implications.

The co-main event will feature one of my favorite fighters I have ever seen train in person,  welterweight Prenice Brewer of Cleveland, Ohio taking on Carlos Lozano. Brewer’s original opponent, Jay Krupp pulled out of the bout with an injury. Brewer is a highly decorated amateur, who has had setbacks in the professional ranks, but moved to the Bay Area a few years ago, this will be his debut fighting in the Bay Area.

Also featured is a four-man tournament, not unlike what the promotion did at super lightweight to determine Luis Garcia as their champion, but this time in the super welterweight division. Chris Washington of San Jose, Ca by way of Dreamland Boxing facing Anthony Hernandez in a battle of unbeaten. On the other half of the bracket, undefeated Ruben Torres will face game veteran and awkward match-up for all do to his long frame, Jared Ejigu.

Square Warriors cruiserweight division champion “Magic” Mike Russell of Petaluma, Ca will return to action against veteran Josh Fisher, Russell has yet to go past the first minute in his previous two fights, let alone past the first round.

LATV women’s boxer of the year Iris Contreras who trains with her father Filemon Contreras at the D.F. Boxing Club in Richmond, Ca, will face a game opponent in Rebecca Light. Contreras will be tested in this bout as she prefers to come forward and throw a lot of punches, but Light is very tough and will challenge her and potentially force her to have to fight off the backfoot in this bout. This is a very good and competitive bout.

Richmond, CA light heavyweight Jasper McCargo will return to action against Jose Galindo, super middleweight Tony Munoz will make his pro debut against Aaron Hamilton, cruiserweight Fernando Caro will face an opponent making his pro debut in Evan Gubera and, cruiserweight Ignacio Zambrano will face Davin Cook
