Alexis Santiago Faces Mexico’s Alex Rangel for the WBC USNBC Bantamweight Title September 21


 Iron Boy Promotions has worked to build a strong foundation for boxing in Arizona, and now brings a WBC USNBC title fight to the valley, and streaming live to boxing fans world-wide.

In the main event, the valley’s Alexis Santiago (14-3-1, 6KO) faces Mexico’s Alex Rangel (15-1-2, 9KO) for the WBC USNBC Bantamweight title.  It will be a tough fight for both fighters, but Santiago feels he’s ready. “Camp has been great. The hard work has been put in and on September 21st, it’s time to finish my job and keep that title at home. “

The entire card will be live streamed on Iron Boy Promotions’ webpage.  Exciting and hard-punching prospect Francisco “Panchito” C. de Vaca (2-0, 2KO) will face the more experienced Manuel Galviz (7-11, 4KO).  De Vaca’s performance on July’s Iron Boy 8 live stream was widely considered the most exciting bout, after ending in a sensational second round knockout.

Also on the live-streamed portion of the card, exciting valley prospect Carlos “The Chosen One” Castro (4-0, 1KO) looks to continue his unbeaten streak.  Castro recently joined Iron Boy Promotions stablemate De Vaca in training with Roberto Alcazar, who was at one time Oscar De La Hoya’s trainer.

SMS Promotions fighter Luis Olivares (4-0, 3KO) has made a splash in the boxing world as one of the first fighters to be signed by rapper-turned-boxing promoter Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent. The Phoenix fighter’s fans across the world will be able to see his fight live.

Iron Boy 9 features several other up and coming Phoenix favorites, including the ever-exciting Chris LopezJose MarrufoVictor Castro and Abel Ramos.
