Malik Scott returns on Thursday night

In appreciation for their loyal support in 2006, boxing fans at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, California will be treated to a marathon event – the last Goossen Tutor Promotions show of the year – this coming Thursday night, December 14.


Undefeated Philadelphia heavyweight Malik Scott will be featured on the busy card, which has a scheduled 80 rounds of boxing in 12 exciting bouts.   Scott (25-0, 10 KOs) will take on veteran Andrew Greeley (14-14-2, 7 KOs), of Monroe Louisiana in a main event contest.


The card will also showcase the talents of a number of local-area and regular Tachi crowd-pleasers, including undefeated Hector Alatorre (from Tulare), Frank Mondejar (Fresno), Juan Herrera (Orosi), Saul Lomas (Fresno) and Manuel Quezada (Bakersfield).  The hard-hitting Quezada (16-4, 12 KOs) will be pitted against David Johnson (Los Angeles) in an eight-round matchup for the WBE Super Heavyweight Championship.


Jessica Rakoczy (Las Vegas, NV), no stranger to the Tachi crowd, will be appearing in Lemoore for the 14th time when she faces Tawynah Freeman (Fort Smith, AR) in a scheduled eight-round battle for the Vacant NABF Women’s Lightweight Title.  Local product, Carina Moreno (Watsonville), will be featured in another women’s contest.


Up and coming member of “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather’s “Team Mayweather” boxing stable -- Wes Fergusen (Flint, MI) -- is also scheduled for action at Tachi, along with several other young prospects.

“2006 has been a tremendous year for Goossen Tutor Promotions” company president Dan Goossen acknowledged.  “We have received tremendous support for our shows at Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino since we kicked off the series three years ago and thought we would reward our loyal fans by providing an extended, action-packed show -- featuring many of their favorite local boxers and Tachi regulars -- to end the year.


“With the addition of undefeated heavyweight Malik Scott, the fans have the opportunity to access where they believe Malik may fare with the top heavyweights in the world.”
