The return of heavyweight prospect 14-1 Alexander Flores to the ring after a six month layoff following his first pro loss, and armed with a new trainer in Henry Ramirez, along with a Fight Club OC MMA Title Bout and the Thursday, October 16th Fight Club OC show has all the makings of a big time happening.
Only 24 years of age Flores and his manager Michael Love made a smart decision following his April loss to undefeated Charles Martin in a NABO title and decided to turn things around and secured the services of one of So Cal’s top boxing trainers in Riverside’s Henry Ramirez. Ramirez is the trainer of Chris Arreola and Josesito Lopez and he took both of them to world title bouts. In just over two months of working with Flores the reports from sparring sessions in Las Vegas are that the big 6’5″ heavyweight has never looked better.
Flores will be matched with Lancaster’s Avery Gibson who just upset 6-0 Danny Kelly in August on an ESPN show at Pechanga and is ready for this challenge. Gibson at 4-4 has never been down, so we have a very interesting heavyweight matchup, one not to miss!
Also featured on the boxing side of the Fight Club OC hybrid card will see the OC debut of 4-0 Rafael Espinoza who with three KOs in his four wins is being looked at by top manager Frank Espinoza. Rafael Espinoza faces Hemets Fernando Fuentes who stands at 4-3. Other Boxing bouts to be named shortly.
And the action will just get hotter as Fight Club OC MMA Middleweight Champion “Curtious” Curtis Millender will put his belt on the line facing Las Vegas Bad Boy James “The Coolest Kid You Know” Chaney. Millender is undefeated at 6-0 and a solid 8-5 record by Chaney means this will be a war with the winner definitely in the sites of the UFC or Bellator!
The sparks will continue to fly as a pair of OC middleweight’s battle for the Orange County bragging rights, as well as staying undefeated. It will be Huntington Beach’s 3-0 Luc Bondole facing Tustin’s 1-0 Alex Coates.
Doors to The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center open at 6:30pm with the show beginning at 7:30pm.
