ORANGE, CA – “New Blood” is coming back to the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California on Friday, October 8th, and when Thompson Boxing Promotions brings the top prospects in boxing to Southern California, the entire fistic world will be watching.
In the main event, scheduled for six rounds in the junior middleweight division, unbeaten Riverside star Alberto Herrera puts his “0” on the line against San Diego prospect Chris Chatman.
Also in action on this fall night of hard-hitting bouts will be unbeatens Christopher Rizo, Oscar Andrade, and Donyil Livingston.
Tickets for “NEW BLOOD”, which is presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions, are priced at $75, $45, and $35. They are available now and may be purchased by calling (714) 935-0900.
Unbeaten as a professional, Alberto Herrera (7-0-1, 5 KOs) is coming off a hard-fought six round draw with 7-0 Sammy Gonzalez in July, and the Riverside product wants nothing more than to leave the judges out of it and get back into the win column by scoring a spectacular knockout. Expecting to have something to say about that is San Diego southpaw Chris Chatman (7-1, 3 KOs). Unbeaten in three fights since his lone pro defeat in 2009, the 26-year old has every intention of putting a “1” in the popular Herrera’s loss column.
24-year old East LA native Christopher Rizo (5-0-1, 3 KOs) has been in a stop-and-go path since the start of his career in 2006, but since returning to an active fight schedule in 2009, he has yet to lose in three bouts, including an 81 second knockout of 25-fight veteran Jose Alfredo Lugo in August. Hoping to introduce Rizo to the agony of defeat on October 8th will be Riverside’s Alex Viramontes (9-6, 3 KOs), a hard-nosed battler who has never been stopped in his seven-year career.
In a four round junior welterweight bout, Los Angeles’ Oscar Andrade (2-0, 1 KOs) meets San Diego’s Federico Martinez who will be making his pro debut, and another prospect with a perfect record, Palmdale middleweight Donyil Livingston (1-0, 1 KO) takes on tough-as-nails Steve Macomber (3-10-1).
Opening up the card will be two four round bouts featuring newcomers to the pro game, as Sergio Nuñez of Maywood battles Portland, Oregon’s Mike Cross in a lightweight contest, and Daniel Roman squares off against Salvador Cifuentes in a super bantamweight showdown.
Bouts subject to change. Doors open at 6:30pm, and the first bell rings at 7:45pm. The Doubletree Hotel is located at 222 North Vineyard Avenue in Ontario. The hotel phone number is 909-937-0900.
