Unbeaten heavyweight LaRon Mitchell (13-0, 13 KOs) fights for the fourth time this year on the co-feature of Thompson Boxing Promotions’ “New Blood” event this Friday at the Omega Products Events Center in Corona, California. The San Francisco-based Mitchell, who is a P.E. teacher at St. Elizabeth’s Elementary in Oakland, takes on Mexico’s Mario Heredia (14-4, 12 KOs) in a fight scheduled for eight rounds. “I’m ready to rock and roll,” Mitchell said. “I was ready to fight three weeks ago.”
In the main event, NABA Champion Danny Roman (19-2-1, 7 KOs) defends his 122-pound title for the fourth time against Mexico’s Enrique Quevedo (16-7-1, 10 KOs) in a 10-rounder.
