Gary Shaw Productions in association with La Noria Entertainment is thrilled to be giving fans an action packed night of boxing this Saturday October 19, 2013 at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena in Whittier, CA. The 10-round main-event of the evening is between lightweight prospect Alejandro Luna (14-0, 11 KOs) and the hardnosed veteran Daniel Attah (28-16-1, 11 KOs). Luna is coming into the fight with 5 KO/TKO wins in his last 7 outings, while Attah is trying to get back into the win column following some recently tough matchmaking.
Luna is quite the draw and he will enjoy a favorable crowd when he steps into the ring on Saturday. As a fast rising prospect, the undefeated Luna hopes to benefit from a win over the most notable opponent on his resume, but it won’t be an easy task as Attah has been in the ring with some of boxing’s best.
The co-main event on the card features another undefeated fighter in Roy Tapia (7-0-1, 3KOs), also from California. The junior featherweight Tapia takes on Sergio Najera of Tijuana, Mexico in a 6-round bout. Tapia promises to bring a crowd pleasing fight to Najera.
“Everyone knows I like to let my hands go,” said Tapia. “I will have a lot of fans coming out to see me fight so I’m coming extra hard to put on a great performance. I’ll be gunning for a knockout.”
The top of the card contains yet another undefeated fighter in local up and comer Arnold Barboza Jr. (2-0), another California-based fighter in his 3rd professional fight. Barboza will square off against Douglas Rosales in a 4-round affair set at the welterweight limit. Barboza prides himself on maintaining the ability to both box and slug. He is looking forward to showcasing his well-versed abilities
The card also features a bout between two female fighters, Edelma Jeffrey and Myra Manzo, making their pro-debuts, as well as a battle between Mexican fighters Jose Garcia and Alejandro Ochoa squaring off in a 4-round lightweight bout. Johathen Hayes and Robert Hill will open up the card in a 4-round junior middleweight bout.
