Miami’s Niko “Baby Face” Valdes (1-0, 1 KO) will open the televised portion in a four-round super middleweight match against a soon-to-be-named opponent. In honor of the evening’s theme, Valdes will also donate his entire purse to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Undefeated super bantamweight star Oscar “El Jaguar” Negrete of Tierralta, Columbia, who now calls Los Angeles home, is eager to make his mark in the bantamweight division. Negrete has been a regular face at LA FIGHT CLUB, fighting his last five fights there, which were all victories including a stunning knockout of Ernesto Guerrero in the third round on the December 4 card and a unanimous decision victory against Neftali Campos on the March 4 edition. Now, the Negrete is eager to add another victory to his record when he faces the tough Jose Bustos on July 1.
Coming off a winning streak, which included victories over Isaias “El Moyote” Orozco, Vidal Cruz, and most recently Marcos “Chicharito” Villarreal, Jose “Flash” Bustos will be looking to continue the momentum when he makes his LA FIGHT CLUB debut on July 1. Not shying away from tough opposition, Bustos has faced difficult fighters in the division including Frank De Alba, Christopher “Pitufo” Diaz, Dennis “The Surgeon” Galarza and Lamont Roach Jr. Now, looking to add another victory to his record, Bustos is ready to face another tough opponent in Oscar Negrete on July 1.
Golden Boy Promotions’ rising star Emilio Sanchez comes from an impressive amateur boxing career, with highlights include a 2011 state Golden Gloves title and Bronze medals in the US Nationals and the Olympic trials. Known for his power, Sanchez’s most recent victories are via knockout over the likes of Gustavo “El Gusano” Molina this past March, Jesus “Juanito” Hernandez in December 2015 and Juan Sandoval in September 2015. Sanchez will be looking for another knockout victory when he takes on the season Hugo Partida in the special edition of LA FIGHT CLUB on July 1.
Hugo “Olímpico” Partida of Mexico City is seasoned veteran known for his willingness to get in the ring with anyone. A professional since 2005, Partida has taken on Marco Antonio “El Bombarderdo” Hernandez, Juan Antonio “Zurdo” Rodriguez, Andres “Chavy” Romero, Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez and Joseph “Jojo” Diaz. Making his LA FIGHT CLUB debut this July 1, Partida will not be for another tough test when he goes up against Emilio Sanchez next.
Miami’s Niko “Baby Face” Valdes will fight his second professional bout at LA FIGHT CLUB against a soon to-be-announced opponent. Once ranked the third best light heavyweight amateur fighter in the U.S, this southpaw superstar leaves behind a highly decorated amateur career that saw him take home bronze at the 2014 USA Amateur Boxing National Championships, four Florida Golden Gloves state championship, and the bronze from the National Golden Gloves. In his professional debut, Valdes scored a first round knockout of Roberto Ramirez in April, now the light heavyweight prospect will be looking for another victory when he returns to the Belasco Theater on July 1.
