On December the sweet science returns to Laredo. Thanks to Triple A Promotions the Sames Auto Arena will play host to Laredo’s favorite son Jorge Castenada as he looks to stay hot against savvy ring veteran Escalante. Castaneda is fresh off a very impressive victory over Carlos Villareal on a nationally televised card promoted by Roy Jones Jr promotions. At just 22, Castaneda is one of the brightest prospects in the lightweight division. He will battle Antonio Escalante, who has scored victories over Miguel Roman and Gary Stark jr among other names and has been in the ring with pound for pound elite Miguel Berchelt. Hotshot Bantamweight prospect Oscar Cantu of Kingsville will battle Leopoldo “Chico” Martinez of Laredo for the vacant American Boxing Federation (ABF) USA Bantamweight Title. The card will also feature an ABF title fight between two elite level women with contrasting style as Brittany Ordonez, who dropped a controversial decision to “Queen Bee” Briana Gonzalez in her last outing will battle the very slick Cristina Fuentes who dropped a very controversial decision also to “Queen Bee” Gonzalez the bout will be for the vacant American Boxing Federation Continental Americas Female Super Featherweight Title. Fuentes last bout with Gonzalez was one of the best most entertaining bouts of the year male or female.

 

El Paso was home to what may have been the fight of the year between two rugged Mexican warriors. Miguel Berchelt scored a 9th round TKO (just as we predicted on the episode of the Fight Doc) over Miguel “Mickey” Roman. The battle was a brutal back and forth slugfest until Berchelt landed a massive left hook late in the third round that wobbled Roman. From there on out the Texas shoot-out became target practice for Berchelt who would go on to floor Roman a total of three times before ending him for good at the end of round nine. The undercard featured a very good looking middleweight prospect named Zach Prieto an undefeated El Paso native that ran his record to 4-0 (3) by knocking Michael Andrews out in the first round.

Houston native and WBC Jr Middleweight Jermell Charlo said that he was more than happy to fight Kell Brook if Brook is successful in beating little-known fringe-contender Michael Zerafa of Australia in December. Charlo will be the co-main event on a December 22nd card at the Barclay’s Center card in Brooklyn, NY. The card is headlined by his identical twin brother Jermall Charlo who will take on Willie Monroe.
