Boxing returns to San Mateo August 24th with Willie Shaw
Boxing returns to San Mateo, Ca on August 24th as San Francisco, Ca’s Willie Shaw looks to avenge his lone career loss at the venue it happened at facing Jose Maruffo in a super lightweight, eight-round bout.
The bout will be a direct rematch of the close first bout in which Maruffo threw more punches than Shaw, and Shaw landed the harder punches. The hope is to see Shaw improve upon the mistakes from the first fight and continue his ascent to a national level fight.
The co-main event features former Top Rank Inc super bantamweight Vic Pasillas who will be fighting for the first time in the Bay Area, his new home, facing Ernesto Guerrero in an eight-round bout. Pasillas is one of the most talented fighters that doesn’t get mentioned nationally, a technical boxer who packs a big punch.
