What To Watch This Week For Boxing

The card will feature local favorite, David Melgoza, who is a big ticket-seller who is facing undefeated Elias Diaz, who had an amateur career. 2019 Olympic Trials participant, featherweight Kevin Montano will make his pro debut in his adopted hometown of Sacramento, Ca, Sacramento local Will Villa, who trains with pro boxer Brandon Gonzales, will be back in action, David Minter will be on the card. The best bout of the evening will be Dreamland’s Mark Salgado versus Cmaje “C.J.” Ramseur in a battle of undefeated fighters, and Joeshon James will be fighting for the first time in America.

“I am really looking forward to make my pro debut in Sacramento,” said Montano earlier this week. “I can’t wait to put on a great performance.”

One of my favorites from the Olympic Trials 2019, Brandon Moore, will fight for the WBC United States (USNBC) Silver heavyweight title in Verite Social Venue, Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico on Friday. Moore will be fighting for the ninth time as a professional and is currently undefeated.

Former world title challenger Sharif Bogere will fight in a stay-busy fight in Mexico on Friday, on a different card.

Vacaville, CA’s Ivan Vergara is listed as fighting this week, though no venue is set per BoxRec, so we will update you if he fights. Vergara only has one loss, he’d be facing undefeated Luis Reynaldo Nunez.

Logan Holler returns to action against a very experienced opponent. Holler will be fighting for the first time in 2021 as her opponent fell out on the Claressa Shields PPV, which she was booked on earlier this year. Also on this Florida card is Valle Brothers, Marques, who fought at the Olympic Trials in 2019, and Dominic.
