EVENT IN INDIO, CALIF.
Boxing Greats Aaron Pryor Sr. & Fernando Vargas Set To Attend Six-Fight Event At Fantasy Springs Resort Casino
LOS ANGELES, April 29 -The boxing ring at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. will be rocking on Friday, May 6, as some of the fight game's hardest hitters, including Librado Andrade, Aaron Pryor Jr., Enrique Ornelas, Deontay Wilder and Randy Caballero, return to action on a stacked card that kicks off May with a bang.
In the 10-round light heavyweight main event of the TeleFutura's "Sólo Boxeo Tecate" broadcast, La Habra's three-time world title challenger Librado Andrade (29-3, 22 KO's) returns to the Southern California-area to battle talented Aaron Pryor Jr. (15-3, 11 KO's) of Cincinnati. Pryor's father, the legendary Aaron Pryor Sr., will be in attendance cheering on his son.
Andrade's brother and ultra-exciting contender Enrique Ornelas (30-7, 20 KO's) will also get a hometown welcome when he squares off with Mexicali's Hector Hernandez (10-3-2, 4 KO's) in an eight round light heavyweight bout.
A six round featherweight bout will see Coachella rising star Randy Caballero (9-0, 5 KO's) taking on Miami's Francis Ruiz (9-4, 4 KO's). Plus, top heavyweight prospect and 2008 U.S. Olympic Bronze Medalist Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder (15-0, 15 KO's) of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, plans on keeping his amazing knockout streak intact when he faces New York's Regino Pena (6-6, 1 KO) in a six round battle.
In undercard action, a host of Coachella Valley-area natives will be looking to please their hometown fight fans, with Indio's own Alfredo Madrigal (1-0) taking on debuting Palm Springs native Mario Villareal in a four round junior featherweight bout and Palm Springs' Hugo Ramos (3-8-2, 1 KO) squaring off against San Bernardino's Juan Sandoval (2-6-1, 2 KO's) in a four round featherweight fight.
Andrade vs. Pryor Jr. is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with DiBella Entertainment and sponsored by Cerveza Tecate and DeWalt Tools. Doors open at 6:00pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:00pm PT. The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:30pm ET / PT (10:30pm CT).
