Club Nokia, Los Angeles, Ca. (Fox Sports Net) 

The Main Event:

Welterweights (8 Rounds) – Jesse Vargas (11-0, 6 KO’s) will take on Pablo Sarmiento (34-13-2, 16 KO’s).

  • Vargas is coming off a sixth round knockout over Ernesto Zavala in June.  He’s scored knockout victories in four of his last five fights, including three straight.
  • Sarmiento is coming off a twelve round split decision loss to Colin Lyles in 2004!  This will be his first fight in the U.S. since 1999!
  • Vargas, who is just 21 years young, is one of Golden Boy Promotions top up and coming prospects.  Don’t expect Sarmiento, who’s been out of the ring for six years, to put up much of a challenge.

The Co-Featured bout:

Welterweights (4 Rounds) – Anthony Martinez (5-0, 4 KO’s) will go up against Ronnie Peterson (3-3, 3 KO’s).

  • Martinez is coming off a four round split decision over Cristian Favela last month.  This will be his third fight in 2010, after having only three fights total his first three years as a professional.
  • Peterson is coming off a first round knockout loss to Frankie Gomez in July.  He’s been stopped in his last three fights.
  • Peterson enters this fight as a lame duck.  Martinez will have no problems dismantling this bumb.

Opening TV bout:

Welterweights (4 rounds) – Jamie Kavanagh (2-0, 1 KO) will battle Ricardo Malfavon (0-2).

  • Kavanagh is coming off a four round unanimous decision over Luis Sanchez in June.
  • Malfavon is coming off a second round stoppage loss to Frankie Gomez in April.
  • If Kavanagh cannot get by Malfavon, who has been stopped the only two times he’s entered the prize ring, he needs to find a new profession.


Friday, October 1st

The Chumash Casino, Santa Ynez, Ca. (Showtime)

The Main Event:

Jr Welterweights (12 rounds) – Patrick Lopez (20-2, 12 KO’s) takes on Tim Coleman (17-1-1, 4 KO’s).

  • Lopez is coming off a third round stoppage over previously unbeaten Cleveland boxer Prenice Brewer last month.  He’s won five straight.
  • Coleman is coming off a 12 round split decision over Mike Arnaoutis last December.  He’s won three straight.
  • This is a nice little main event for Showtime’s Shobox series.  The winner will look to get closer to a legit top ten ranking.

Co-Featured bout:

Lightweights (8 rounds) – Archie Ray Marquez (10-0, 7 KO’s) goes up against Juan Santiago (13-4-1, 8 KO’s)

  • Marquez is coming off an eight round unanimous decision over Derrick Campos in January.  He’s had back-to-back decision wins.
  • Santiago is coming off a tenth round knockout over previously undefeated Donaldo Holguin in June.  Of his four losses, only one comes from a fighter who wasn’t undefeated.
  • Great step up fight for Marquez, who has fought absolutely no one.  Santiago has been in with the tougher opposition.  This fight will tell us if Marquez is truly a prospect worth keeping our eyes on.


Club De Regatas, Corrientes, Argentina (Telefutura)

The Main Event:

Lightweights (10 rounds) – Jorge Barrios (49-4-1, 35 KO’s) battles Wilson Alcorro (28-12-3, 18 KO’s).

  • Barrios is coming off a fifth round stoppage over Michael Lozada last November.  He’s won back-to-back fights and hasn’t lost in Argentina since 1997!
  • Alcorro is coming off a third round knockout over Elfran Arroyo in July.  He’s won back-to-back fights in his native Colombia after having lost five of his last six away from home.
  • Barrios should continue his winning streak here, as Alcorro rarely wins a step up fight.

The co-feature:

Welterweights (10 rounds) – Hector Saldivia (34-2, 27 KO’s) will take on Jailton De Jesus Souza (12-1, 10 KO’s)

  • Saldivia is coming off a third round stoppage over Diego Alzugaray last month.  He’s won thirteen of his last fourteen fights.
  • De Jesus Souza is coming off a six round unanimous decision over William Santos in July.  That was his first fight since his first loss as a professional.
  • Saldivia will wipe the floor with De Jesus Souza, who has beaten only one fighter with a winning record.


Saturday, October 2nd 

Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan (No U.S. TV)

The Main Event:

Jr Featherweights (12 rounds) – Ring Magazine #1 Jr. Featherweight Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym (41-1, 29 KO’s) will go up against Ryol Li Lee (16-1-1, 8 KO’s)

  • Kratingdaenggym is coming off a fourth round knockout over Shoji Kimura in May.  He’s won seventeen straight fights, dating back to 2006.
  • Lee is coming off a ten round unanimous decision over Hisashi Amagasa in June.  He’s won ten in a row.
  • Kratingdaenggym has way too much experience for Lee.  The real matchup in this division, one that will crown a legitimate champion, will be a matchup between Kratingdaenggym and Toshiaki Nishioka.
  1. JSantana says:

    Poonsawat is the man. I thought Barrios was in jail?

  2. Castro says:

    Yes, Poonsawat is! Barrios got out. Still has to go to trial I believe. It’s Argentina, lol
