Friday, October 8th

South Philly Arena, Philadelphia, Pa. (Telefutura) 

The Main Event:

Welterweights (10 Rounds) – Danny “Swift” Garcia (18-0, 12 KO’s) will take on “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (22-6-2, 10 KO’s).

  • Garcia is coming off a ninth round stoppage over Jorge Romero in July.  Five of his last six bouts have been stoppage victories. 
  • Arnaoutis is coming off a ten round unanimous decision loss to Demetrius Hopkins in July.  He’s lost three straight and four of his last five.
  • The 22 year old Garcia will have the hometown advantage, and he may need it.  Despite these fighters going in opposite directions, Arnaoutis should put up a challenge for Garcia, as he will be his most accomplished opponent to date.  Garcia should prevail, but don’t count out “Mighty” Mike.

The Main Event:

Flyweights (12 rounds) – Ring Magazine Flyweight Champion of the World Pongsaklek Wonjongkam (76-3-1, 40 KO’s) will go up against Suriyan Por Chokchai (14-4-1, 4 KO’s).

  • Wonjongkam is coming off a first round knockout over Rey Megrino in July.  He’s unbeaten in his last twelve fights.
  • Por Chokchai is coming off a first round knockout over Decky Putra in July.  He’s won six in a row, with four of those wins coming by way of knockout.
  • Wonjongkam is truly a wonder.   He has fought nearly everyone out there in his weight class.  As a 33 year old flyweight with 80 fights under his belt, one has to wonder how much gas is left in his tank.  There will be enough to get by Por Chokchai, who just isn’t close to the same class of fighter.

 

Saturday, October 9th   

Centro De Convenciones, Mexico (No U.S. TV)

The Main Event:

Jr Bantamweights (12 rounds) – Ring Magazine #2 Jr. Bantamweight Hugo “El Increible” Cazares (32-6-2, 23 KO’s) will fight Alberto Rossel (24-7, 11 KO’s).

  • Cazares is coming off a seventh round stoppage over Everado Morales in July.  He’s unbeaten in his last six fights and the only two fights he’s lost since 2000 were against former pound for pound elite Ivan Calderon.
  • Rossel is coming off an eleven round majority decision over Luis Singo in July.  He’s won six in a row.
  • Cazares is a terrific fighter that won’t have a problem getting by Rossel.  A great future matchup for him would be a showdown with fellow Jr Bantamweight top 5 contender Tomas Rojas.
