Longtime hall of fame promoter Don Chargin Productions and Paco Presents Boxing returns with their first card of 2017 entitled “Todo o Nada.” Former IBF world super flyweight champion and two-time world title contender Rodrigo Guerrero (25-6-1, 16 KOs) takes on Fresno, CA’s Mike Ruiz Jr. (11-4-2, 4 KOs) for the International Boxing Association America’s bantamweight title at the Cache Creek Casino Resort in beautiful Brooks, CA on April 15th.
First bell is at 6 PM.
The veteran, Rodrigo Guerrero has fought all across the world in some of the biggest fights possible as he fought Stuart Hall in front of a sold-out crowd in the United Kingdom. Guerrero lost a very questionable decision to Daiki Kameda for the IBF World super flyweight title (we have included it for you to watch (fight here)), as well as going the distance with a prime Vic Darchinyan. Guerrero is as good as ever and a win over Mike Ruiz Jr., for the title, will position him closer to fight the bantamweight world champion Shinsuke Yamanaka.
Coming off the biggest win of his career, Mike Ruiz Jr. upset a rising star in the super flyweight division, Bruno Escalante, in their rematch last year in Oakland, CA. Ruiz Jr. has been looking to parlay the win into a big fight and now will face a two-time world title contender in hopes of getting a redemption win over Guerrero. Ruiz Jr. came up short in his first attempt at winning the IBA title four years ago in Redwood City, CA and looks to complete his resurrection of his career by winning the title at Cache Creek Casino Resort.
The co-main event will feature an exciting super bantamweight match-up between Jose Salgado (35-3-2, 28 KOs) of Merida, Mexico taking on Javier Gallo (23-13-1, 12 KOs) Buena Park, California.
Salgado is a former NABF super flyweight champion, who fought Carlos Cuadras in 2014 for the WBC super flyweight title in which the bout was ruled a draw. Salgado has not fought for a world title since and is looking to get himself into title contention for a Cuadras rematch or even a bout with Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez in the near future.
A win would set-up Salgado amongst the top of the division.
