CHRISTIAN GONZALEZ TO MAKE COMEBACK FIGHT AGAINST DANIEL PERALES IN LIGHTWEIGHT CO-MAIN EVENT ON ESTRELLA TV'S BOXEO ESTELAR LIVE FROM THE BELASCO THEATER
LOS ANGELES (July 7, 2017) Fans were stunned when Charles Huerta (19-5, 12 KOs) scored a massive upset in a third round knockout over Ivan Delgado on the April 14th edition of LA FIGHT CLUB. Now, the proud Paramount, CA native will look to draw even more masses as he steps up to take on a soon to-be-announced opponent on August 10 in an eight-round super featherweight fight from the Belasco Theater televised live on Estrella TV's Boxeo Estelar.
In the co-main event, Christian "Chimpa" Gonzalez (16-1, 14) representing Buena Park, CA will take on rugged Monterey, Mexico fighter Daniel Perales (10-10-1, 5 KOs) in an eight-round lightweight bout. Fighting in his eighth professional bout at the Belasco Theater, "Chimpa" is returning to the ring following a loss to Romero Duno on March 10 at LA FIGHT CLUB.
Kicking off the televised opener on Estrella TV, Francisco Esparza (6-0, 2 KOs) of Las Vegas will face Hemet, CA's Fernando "Chukito" Fuentes (12-7, 4 KOs) in a six-round featherweight fight. Esparza makes his first return to the ring following a unanimous decision victory over Emmanuel Castro at LA FIGHT CLUB last March.
Opening up the evening's LA FIGHT CLUB, Los Angeles local and Westside Boxing Club's Rafael Gramajo (8-1-1, 2 KOs) will fight in a six-round bantamweight battle against Jair "El Nino" Quintero (7-5-2, 1 KO) of Hermosillo, Mexico. Gramajo was last seen defeating Harold Reyes by way of unanimous decision at the Belasco Theater more than a year ago.
