DEMYANENKO-FRIAS HEADLINES TACOMA SHOW
Press Release: Brian Halquist Productions has finalized the card set for Saturday, November 3rd at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, WA. Tickets are still available through ticketmaster.com or by visiting any Emerald Queen Casino box office. Headlining the card will welterweight Vitaliy Demyanenko (21-0, 12 KOs) taking on Damian Frias (19-5-1, 10 KOs). Frias is coming off a decision loss to light middleweight contender Carlos Molina [not the boxer with the same name who will fight Amir Khan]. Before that loss, Frias had 3 straight victories and will attempt to mount another winning streak to his record come November 3rd. Halquist said, “this is a classic main event that is no doubt made for TV. Fans are going to be in for a treat when these two step into the ring.”
The most highly anticipated undercard is the bout featuring Portland, OR native Ray Lampkin, Jr. (1-0) and Yakima, WA’s Randell Corpuz (2-1-1). Lampkin was once a very promising amateur prospect with 4 golden gloves awards and the son of former lightweight Ray Lampkin. Corpuz is a hard-nosed fighter that comes out swinging from the start and doesn’t stop until the bell rings.
The rest of the undercard will be full of four-round bouts. John Jay Mount (Elmo, MT) will be squaring off against Daryl Gardner (Spokane, WA) who will be making his pro debut. Coming fresh off a knockout victory in his last fight, Marcelino Pineda (Toppenish, WA) will be up against Dex Montenegro (Issaquah, WA). Landon Horseman (Yakima, WA) will be making his debut when he steps into the ring with Cory Vom Baur out of Spokane, WA. The two youngest fighters on the card, Vidal Cruz (Toppenish, WA) and Omar Avelar (Lummi, WA) will battle for a victory. Rounding up the card will be a battle of debuts between Juan Carlos Rodriguez (Spokane, WA) and Angel Diaz (Moses Lake, WA).
