LOS ANGELES – The fall boxing season kicks into high gear this Friday, October 15, when boxing’s top young talent descends upon Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California for an action-packed card featuring a main event showdown between California standouts Eloy Perez (18-0-2, 5 KO’s) and Dominic Salcido (18-2, 9 KO’s) for the NABO Junior Lightweight Championship.
