LOS ANGELES – Tickets, starting at just $29, are on sale for a vitally important showdown between two of California’s most highly regarded heavyweight contenders seeking to become the first world heavyweight champion of Mexican descent.
Riverside’s Cristobal “The Nightmare” Arreola (28-2, 25 KOs) will square off with Bakersfield rival Manuel “El Toro” Quezada (29-5, 18 KOs) on Friday, Aug. 13, at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif., in a scheduled 12-round main event for the WBC Mexican National Championship presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions.

Undercard bouts will be announced shortly. Doors open at 5 p.m. with the first fight set at 6 p.m. The main event is slated for 8:00 p.m.
The 29-year-old Arreola who challenged world heavyweight kingpin Vitali Klitschko for the WBC crown less than one year ago, is looking to rebound from a hard-fought upset decision loss to Tomasz Adamek in April at Citizens Business Bank Arena. The East Los Angeles native needs to defeat Quezada to re-emerge as a world title contender.
Quezada, 32, is coming off a shocking setback in April to Jason Gavern. The native of Wasco, Calif., Quezada needs a triumph over the hard-hitting Arreola to stay relevant in the heavyweight picture.
The colorful Arreola, who has 25 KOs in 28 career victories, is refocused on his boxing skills after a disappointing performance against Adamek. Quezada, who hasn’t been knocked out since 2003 – his only KO loss – is training under new management with an improved attitude towards achieving his goal of a world title shot.
