Don Chargin Productions and Paco Presents Boxing returns on October 29th to light things up at the Cache Creek Casino Convention Center in Brooks, California.
n the main event, welterweight Alan Sanchez (21-5-1, 10 KOs) of Fairfield, California, will see what he can do to upset the undefeated Saul Bustos (15-0-1, 8 KOs) of Los Angeles, California. .
The two will meet for the WBA Fedecentro title. Bustos is a hot prospect who trains from Hollywood’s famous Wild Card Boxing Club and is making his debut in northern California. If he can grab the win, he could put himself in a position to win the World Cup with a shot at the line.
Bustos probably has the best boxers in his corner in the trio of head trainer Freddie Roach, along with trainers Pepe Reilly and Marvin Somodio.
Reilly, a former plus supporter, former National Golden Gloves Champion and member of the 1992 Barcelona USA boxing team, caught up with MaxBoxing to talk about Bustos, a fighter who continues to improve and impress.
“Saul is a strong fighter. If he stays busy, fights a lot and continues to learn along the way, he can do well at the top level. “He has good hand speed and good control, and we continue to do work with him. on his defense, which is improving all the time,” Reilly said.
The wild card, which has seen its fair share of legends training there with Roach, is a good place for ambitions like Bustos.
“He’s been getting great sparring at Wild Card, something as important as anything in the sport,” “Like I said, as he’s getting great fights and continuing to learn and make adjustments need, it will be very good.”
Being underweight is nothing new for Alex Sanchez. Although he has won 21 of 25 professional games, Sanchez is used to being underrated.
Sanchez’s career began slowly. He lost two of his first eight bouts. Opposing managers may have thought that aligning their fighters with Sanchez would lead to success.
Undefeated fighters Jesse Isais, Alberto Morales, Luis Grajeda, and John Ryan Grimlado have tested this theory.
Sanchez beat them all. The Fairfield, CA, resident always brings it.
While the main event looks like it can’t be missed, the undercard also has some strong and interesting cases.
Popular cruiserweight Blake “The Beast” McKernan, from just down the road in Sacramento, came at 13-1, 6 KO’s, and tangles with 14-fight veteran Roberto Silva (11-3).
McKernon was last seen in the ring two years ago, exchanging hands with former world champion Badou Jack.
McKernon showed a giant heart and a cement egg as he attached it to Jack. Leave no makeup on.
Super bantamweight Ivan Vergara (8-1, 2 KOs), of Fairfield, California, getting a tough job in unbeaten Juan Pedro Miranda (6-0, 2 KOs), of San Diego. Vergara is back in the ring after a three-year absence.
Also, Sacramento State University graduate and featherweight prospect Kevin “Babu Mas” Montano (3-0, 2 KO’s) will face fellow undefeated fighter Kevin Perez (1-0-1) of Corona , California, on four rounds. Finally, in many flights, we will see the debut of heavyweight Frederico Pacheco Jr, brother of Diego Pacheco, in four rounds.
These club shows, which showcase events at the local and regional level, are the lifeblood of boxing. This show, hosted by Paco Damien, who has been performing in the area for ten years, will feature some of California’s hot spots that are worth keeping an eye on. However, there are no gimmes here as Damien looks to put the fighters to the toughest test. Every fighter on the card will get their money’s worth that night—which translates to a great night at the fight for the fans.
“I am very grateful to be back at Cache Creek Casino Resort and the opportunity to play our show in the new Convention Center. entertainment Damien says Northern California is fighting the fans. “The main event is something special. We have a great fight with the WBA title on the line. I’m excited to bring this kind of fight to the Northern California area,” he said.
