Golden Boy Signs Re-Signs Charles Huerta; Headlines Aug. 10 LA Fight Club
Paramount, California's super featherweight contender Charles Huerta (19-5, 12 KOs) signed a multi-fight promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions. Huerta is coming off a sensational third round knockout over Ivan "Striker" Delgado (11-1-1, 4 KOs) to the shock of the sold-out Belasco Theater on the April 14 edition of LA Fight Club.
"I am very thankful to be re-signing with Golden Boy Promotions. Growing up, I idolized Oscar De La Hoya and watched all of his fights, so it's a dream come true to fight under his banner," said Huerta. "There is nothing like boxing in SoCal, and I look forward to seeing all of the local fight fans come out to see me in more shows." "After witnessing Huerta's last fight, it's clear he is a crowd-pleasing fighter in the ring," said Golden Boy Promotions Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya. "Huerta brings out the hardcore South LA boxing fans, and we can't wait to watch him in more action-packed, turf war showdowns."
Huerta will return to the ring vs. a soon to-be-announced opponent on August 10 in an eight-round super featherweight fight from the Belasco Theater televised live on Estrella TV's Boxeo Estelar.
