GUADALAJARA CARD ANNOUNCED FOR APRIL 1ST
Press Release: On Saturday, April 1st in Guadalajara, México, promoters Eddie Reynoso and Sampson Lewkowicz will team up to present a boxing show to be televised live on TyC Sports of Argentina. This event will feature a ten-round battle in the 122-pound division between Argentina's Roman Ruben Reynoso (19-1-2, 8 KOs) and Mexico's Christian "Molacho" Valenzuela (13-0-1, 8 KOs).
Reynoso has left his native Argentina just twice in his career, but on one of those occasions, fought to a split draw with well-regarded prospect Adam Lopez on ShoBox: The New Generation in July 2016.
Like Reynoso, the undefeated Valenzuela has never left his home country, but has stayed busy with fourteen fights in his three-year career.
In the chief supporting bout, Argentinean 2016 Summer Olympian Alberto Palmetta will go for his third consecutive victory as a professional against Mexico City's Luis Montelongo (4-1).
The 26-year-old Palmetta, a junior middleweight, was one of the most heavily decorated amateurs in his country's history. He won numerous national and international distinctions including the bronze medal at the 2015 Pan American Games. He turned professional in November 2016.
In the televised opener, Novato, California via Uruguay's Rudy Macedo (3-0, 3 KOs) will face also undefeated Leonel Rodriguez of Mexico in a four-round welterweight showdown. The power-punching Macedo was an amateur world champion, PAL champion and five-time Silver Gloves Champion. He is trained by Nonito Donaire Sr.
"I am proud to be part of this event and to be helping TyC celebrate their anniversary," said Sampson Lewkowicz. "They have done a tremendous service to boxing throughout their history. Thank you to my esteemed partner, Eddie Reynoso, as well. I'm looking forward to a great night of fights for the fans in Mexico, Argentina and around the world to enjoy."
Five more bouts are scheduled for the untelevised undercard.
