Bash Boxing's Hollywood Fight Night Returns Saturday to Florentine Gardens
After a whirlwind postponement due to a fire at original destination Sportsmens Lodge in Studio City, it’s finally fight week and the World Famous Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, California has stepped up to host this Saturday’s HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT professional boxing show.
The newest generation of TOP RANK signees are set to show their stuff at HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT as Burbank’s Adam Lopez (11-1, 5KOs) will take on Brazilian Aldimar Silva (21-15, 13KOs) in a six round featherweight clash and Lightweight Eric Puente makes his professional debut against Pomona’s Keith Carson (0-1).
This Saturday’s HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT also marks big homecomings for Middleweight Jonathan Guevara (6-0) and Welterweights Vlad Panin (2-0), and Carlos Francisco “Pepper” Saucedo (1-0).
Anaheim’s Guevara has knocked out all 6 of his foes in the professional ranks but all in lower level bouts in Tijuana. Guevara will now face off against battle tested Joan Jose Valenzuela (4-11-2). Hollywood’s Panin returns exactly one year to the day he suffered a broken hand in a stirring one-punch knockout at Valley Fight Night. While El Monte’s Suacedo has waited almost 3 years since his maiden bout to step back into the ring and hear his fans yell “It’s Pepper Time.”
Also on the card, Glendale Super Bantamweight Alexander Enriquez (7-0-3) makes his Hollywood Fight Night debut against Mexican Leonardo Torress (4-11) while hard-hitting Ukrainian welterweight Yulian Tembotov (7-0, 5KOs) takes on his toughest challenger to date in tough and durable Chukka “Lion King” Willis (4-8, 2 KOs).
To start of the action this Saturday night, Greek sensation Triantafyllos Mavidis (3-0) will take on upset specialist Roberto Yong (6-14-2) in a 6 round Super Middleweight bout.
