HBO Latino Tripleheader at Fantasy Springs 12/16
Los Angeles-based undefeated Vyacheslav "Lionheart Chingonskyy" Shabranskyy (17-0, 14 KOs) will look to continue his impressive run up the light heavyweight ladder, but standing in his way will be his toughest competition to date in the form of Cuban standout Sullivan Barrera (17-1, 12 KOs), as the two warriors go head-to-head in a 10-round bout for Shabranskyy's WBC USNBC Light Heavyweight title on HBO Latino® Boxing on Friday, December 16 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
In the televised co-main event of the night, Bronx-born IBF North American welterweight titlist Eddie "E-Boy" Gomez (19-1, 11 KOs) will put his title on the line in a 10-round fight against undefeated Rashidi "Speedy" Ellis (16-0, 11 KOs) of Lynn, Massachusetts.
Rounding out the HBO Latino card, WBC Silver featherweight titlist and Santa Ana-born Ronny Rios (26-1, 11 KOs) will seek to grow his three-fight winning streak - including a solid victory against the then-undefeated Jason Velez to earn the belt -- against a yet-to-be-determined opponent.
