Thompson Boxing Returns July 26: Michael Dutchover vs. Jorge Marrone Headline
Thompson Boxing Promotions is pleased to present 3.2.1 Boxing, a live Pay Per View (PPV) stream event, showcasing three action-packed bouts on Sunday, July 26, 2020. The PPV broadcast, airing live on the Thompson Boxing Promotions website (www.thompsonboxing.com), will start at 4:30 p.m. PT / 7:30 p.m. ET., and will take place at the Omega Products International Event Center in Corona, CA. 3.2.1 Boxing is a non-audience show priced at $6.50 (US Territories, Canada, EU, Asian countries), $3.50 (Latin America, Africa, Asian countries).
“We started 2020 with a bang and, as we all know, everything had to stop,” said promoter Ken Thompson. “We are now ready to resume live action Sunday, July 26, with the best possible event created for our fans. Everybody has been going through some tough times due to the virus and we are ready to entertain and reach the boxing fans the world over.”
In the 8-round main event, 22-year-old heavy fisted lightweight, Michael “West Texas Warrior” Dutchover (13-1, 10 KOs), goes toe-to-toe with Jorge Marron Jr. (18-1, 6 KOs), who hails from Lakeside, CA, in a bout that promises to be an all-out war.
Dutchover, is co promoted by Banner Promotions, coached and managed by Danny Zamora, and trains out of Santa Fe Springs, CA. The Midland, TX, native will be looking to rebound from his first career loss to Thomas Mattice, a controversial TKO due to a cut and the doctor halting the fight in round eight. Dutchover has power in both hands and his goal is to get back on a winning streak with an explosive performance.
In the 8-round co-feature, rising undefeated super lightweight prospect Ruben “Ace” Torres (12-0, 10 KOs), puts his unbeaten record on the line against a fighter to be announced.
Torres is coming off a spectacular fourth round knockout when he stopped the rugged Mexican warrior Gabino Cota (19-11-2, 17 KOs), in a Thompson Boxing Promotions main event bout that took place at the Doubletree Hotel on February 21, 2020. With the win, Torres is quickly ascending in the super lightweight ranks, and making a name for himself as a KO artist.
The opening 6-round featherweight bout pits undefeated boxer Arnold Dinong (6-0, 1 KO) of Daly City, CA, against the rugged Brandon Cruz (6-1, 4 KOs), a slugger from San Diego, CA, as he steps up in competition looking to keep his unbeaten record intact.
3.2.1.
