In a brawl that only LA FIGHT CLUB could bring its devoted and knowledgeable boxing fans, former NABF Super Bantamweight Champion Manuel “Tino” Avila (19-0, 8 KOs) is ready for a showdown to defend his undefeated record as he moves up to featherweight to face off against Nicaraguan warrior and former WBC Silver Featherweight Champion Rene “Gemelo” Alvarado (23-6, 16 KOs) in a 10-round main event on April 1 at The Belasco Theater and live on Boxeo Estelar on Estrella TV.
In the televised co-main event, Mexican warrior Gilberto “El Flaco” Gonzalez (25-3, 21 KOs) of Mexico City will return to make his second showing at LA FIGHT CLUB to compete in an eight-round super lightweight bout against an opponent to be named soon.
