A former national amateur champion, East Los Angeles ’ Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez (15-0, 11 KO’s) has been a rising star since he began his professional career.  The winner of three bouts in 2012 including knockouts over Manuel Leyva and Pavel Miranda and a decision win over Lanard Lane , the 21-year-old is ready for his next step up in competition against former World Champion Corley.

 

38-year-old southpaw DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley (39-20-1, 23 KO’s) is perhaps the most battle-tested fighter in the junior welterweight division today, having shared the ring with the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Miguel Cotto, Devon Alexander, Lucas Matthysse, Zab Judah and Marcos Maidana and just to name a few.  However, the former 140-pound World Champion isn’t living off of past glory, as in 2012 he issued defeats to previously unbeaten Gabriel Bracero and European contender Paul McCloskey, proving that he has plenty left to offer in the ring. 

 

A true fan favorite who packs the seats at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino every time he fights, Coachella native Randy Caballero (18-0, 10 KO’s) has a support system second to none and has rewarded his followers with spectacular wins over the likes of Luis Maldonado, Manuel Roman, Alexis Santiago and Sergio Cristobal.  On July 20, he’s back on his home turf and will look to make a statement to the boxing world once again.

 

Fighting out of San Juan , Puerto Rico Miguel Robles (12-2-2, 5 KO’s) hopes to spoil Caballero’s homecoming by scoring an upset this summer.  The winner of nine of his last 10 bouts, the 31-year-old Robles is a former WBC FECARBOX super flyweight champion ready to go to battle and give Caballero the surprise of his young career.
