BURBANK, CA BOOKS APRIL 28TH SOLO BOXEO
Press Release: Solo Boxeo on Unimas comes to the Burbank Marriott Convention and Event Center in Burbank, California on Friday, April 28th. Headlining will be Casey “The Wizard” Ramos (23-1, 6 KOs) against Mexico’s Miguel Beltran, Jr. (31-5, 21 KOs) in a ten-round super featherweight bout. Also on the show, Detroit's Erick De Leon (15-0, 9 KOs) takes on Colombia's Daulis Prescott (31-5, 24 KOs) and California junior welterweight Arnold Barboza Jr. (15-0, 5 KOs) battles Markus Morris (10-2, 6 KOs).
For Texan Casey Ramos, he will look to bounce back on April 28th after suffering his first professional loss, which came via technical decision in an all-out brawl versus Andy Vences (18-0, 10 KOs) last November. Ramos is no stranger to Burbank, California as he stopped Jonathan Perez (35-13) here last year.
Originally from the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, Erick De Leon and his family migrated to the Detroit area when he was six years old. De Leon would go on to win multiple National Golden Gloves titles before turning pro and signing with Top Rank shortly thereafter. De Leon’s last appearance in the ring came when he knocked out New Mexico’s Jose Salinas (10-2-1) with a body shot.
Prescott, who previously challenged Nicholas Walters for the WBO featherweight title, will be by far the 25-year-old De Leon’s toughest opponent to date in this eight-round super featherweight tussle.
South El Monte’s Barbosa is no stranger to a local show. He lkast fought on January 27th, winning a workmanlike decision over Denver’s Johnny Rodriguez (8-1-1).
As always, fans looking to root for local boxers will not be left in the cold as several youngsters from the local area are scheduled to appear on the Valley Fight Night undercard including Jessy Martinez (5-0), Kevin Valle (3-0), Robert Ochoa (1-0), and the professional debuts of Davionne Moody, Christian Robles, and Dominic Serna.
