Mora brothers headlining in Denver


Mora brothers headlining in Denver

Press Release: "Brawlroom Boxing" makes its return to the Denver area on Tuesday, January 17, 2006. Following a successful inaugural show back in September 2005, Tuesday Night Fights, LLC is anxious to bring another high-octane card to the area. Headlining the card will be a double main event featuring junior welterweights Adrian and Anthony Mora in separate ten-round fights. Adrian (14-0-1, 7 KOs) will face Shawn "Sabre" Simmons (26-15-1), while will Anthony (14-0, 10 KOs) will face Roberto Valenzuela (34-18-1, 30 KOs) in something of a grudge match. 

Valenzuela is a familiar face to Denver fight fans, as he faced Adrian on the September 20th card. In a hard fought bout, one in which featured a lot of back and forth, Adrian took home a unanimous decision win, but Valenzuela certainly won over some fans and is eager to extract some revenge on Adrian's older brother, Anthony, who was a fourth-place finisher in the 2000 US
Nationals and second-place finisher in the 2000 National Golden Gloves. After injuries slowed Anthony in 2004, he returned with two wins in 2005 and will square off vs. Shawn "Sabre" Simmons (26-15-1) of Kentucky. "This is my opportunity to show people that my talent matches my hype, and 2006 will be the year that my brother and I explode onto the scene."

Adrian Mora (14-0-1, 7 KOs) also predicted, "it's just a matter of time before I position myself in the ratings so that some of these other prospects have to face me to move on. It's frustrating because everyone wants to be a prospect, but no one wants to take a risk. One more fight, and I'll be ready, willing and able to take on any of the prospects in the division, anywhere they want to make the fight."

Simmons, a veteran of 42 pro fights has been in with some big names, including Lakva Sim and Angel Manfredy.

On the undercard, Jose "El Asesino Caro Niño" Morales (1-0) will step in against Manny Sanchez (2-1) in a scheduled five rounder. Morales debuted in front of a
packed Sherman Street Event Center and made an immediate impression. Sanchez suffered a broken jaw last time out, but has fully recovered and is anxious to get in the ring. Also on the card will be lightweight, Hector "Chin Checka" Saez (7-3) and junior welterweight Marvin Cordova (7-0) with opponents to be determined.

The classy and historic Sherman Street Event Center will once again play host to "Brawlroom Boxing" and the card will be taped and televised at a later date by HDNet, with heavyweight contender DaVarryl "Touch of Sleep" Williamson providing the color commentary. Doors will open at 6:00 pm with the first bell at 7:00 pm (Mountain time). Affordably priced tickets are available at or by calling 303.623.7875 and 720.434.4515.
