Boxing returns to Woodland, CA

By Togorashi

On June 23, hall of fame promoter Don Chargin of Don Chargin Productions and Paco Presents Boxing returns with their second card of 2017 to the Woodland Community Center. The show is headlined by WBC Continental Americas Welterweight Champion Alan Sanchez (18-3-1 9 KOs) of Fairfield, CA, taking on knockout artist Miguel Huerta (28-14-1 18KOs) of Santa Ana, CA in the main event.

Alan Sanchez’s last two fights included a defeat over former world title contender and veteran of the sport Pablo Cesar Cano in a split decision win, along with blemishing John Karl Sosa’s previously perfect record with a TKO victory. Sanchez is looking to vault himself into the top 10 of the welterweight division and challenge for another world title within the next year.

The co-main event will feature light heavyweight Ryan “The Rhino” Bourland- (12-1 5KOs) of Vallejo, CA in action to defend his Global Boxing Organization light heavyweight title against Cesar Ruiz (5-4 2 KOs) of Phoenix, AZ in an eight round battle. As stated by Don Chargin, “Bourland is a throwback of the old blood and guts fighters.”

Undefeated featherweight Alberto Torres (9-0-2 4KOs) of Sacramento, CA will challenge Angel Aguilar (8-12 1 KO) of Mexico City, Mexico in a six round bout. In January Torres stopped Filipino prospect Adam Fiel with a KO victory in the fourth round and back in April Torres won a unanimous decision again Jose Silveria. Torres is hoping to pick up his third win for 2017.

Vacaville, CA’s featherweight Ivan Vergara (2-0 1KO) will look to maintain a perfect record after picking up a knockout win in his last fight. In a four round bout Vergara will put his record on the line against Jose Mora (1-3) of San Diego, CA.

In the opening bout of the night, super featherweight Steven Rapadas- (0-0-1) of Sacramento, CA will take on Luis Silva (4-10 1 KO) of Buena Park, CA in a four round bout. Rapadas will look to get his first win of his professional career after an exciting pro debut that ended in a draw.
