Heading up Saturday’s four-fight undercard will be a six round junior middleweight matchup between battlers Angel Osuna (8-3-1, 4 KO’s) and Eddie Hunter (6-7-2, 2 KO’s). 24-year-old Osuna, a Culiacan native now fighting out of Coachella, Calif., is on a four fight winning streak, with two of those victories coming by knockout. In Seattle’s Hunter, he will be facing a tough warrior who is fresh off of a March victory over then 3-1-1 prospect Kevin Hand.
Palm Springs’ Kenny Williams (3-0-1, 1 KO) is unbeaten in his campaign as a professional and he has become a fan favorite at Fantasy Springs where he has fought all of his fights. On Saturday, he will compete in a six round junior welterweight fight against Portland, Oregon’s William Williams (4-1, 2 KO’s).
Although he is only 2-0, Los Angeles junior featherweight Julian Ramirez has given fans plenty of reason to cheer thus far including his two first round knockouts. In a four round fight, he faces fellow Los Angeles product Christian Navarro who is making his professional debut.
In the opening fight, scheduled for four rounds in the middleweight division, Russian prospect Dmitry Chudinov (6-0-1, 3 KO’s) will face an opponent to be determined.
