LOS ANGELES - Southern California rivals Charles Huerta and Christopher Martin are set to square off

at The Hangar at the O.C. Fair & Event Center on Friday, May 20, in the main event of TeleFutura's "Sólo

Boxeo Tecate" broadcast in a fight which will determine local hero moves closer to a world title shot in the

ultra-competitive featherweight division.

 

In the co-main event, exciting junior lightweight prospect Ronny Rios out of Santa Ana looks to keep his

unbeaten record intact against an opponent to be named in an eight round contest.

 

The doubleheader, which headlines a night of world-class professional boxing, is presented by Golden Boy

Promotions in association with Roy Englebrecht Promotions' special edition of "Fight Club O.C.," and

The pride of Paramount, California, Charles Huerta (16-2, 9 KO's) is looking to

bounce back from a razor-thin split decision loss to unbeaten Raul Hirales Jr. on

January 28.  The 24-year-old Huerta has won five of his last six bouts and is

determined to prove he is ready for the next step in his career.  In his fourth year

as a professional, Huerta is getting a shot at Martin, a world-ranked contender

that will be a tough test, but one Huerta has looked forward to for years.

 

One of Southern California's best-kept secrets, 24-year-old San Diego native

Christopher Martin (21-0-2, 6 KO's) let the cat out of the bag in 2010, reeling

off five wins in impressive fashion.  Most importantly, he defeated previously

unbeaten Chris Avalos on national television and followed that with victories over

Jose Luis Araiza and Yogli Herrera.  Now ranked in the top ten by the WBC and

IBF, Martin begins his march towards a title shot on May 20.

 

A former amateur star whose aggressive style is tailor-made for the professional

game, 21-year-old Ronny Rios (13-0, 6 KO's) began to make his way to the

next level in 2010, as he pounded out five wins against hard-nosed opponents,

including Leivi Brea and Adolfo Landeros.  On May 20, he makes his first start

of 2011, eager to show the improvements he's made since the last time he

stepped between the ropes. 

 

In a solid undercard two undefeated fighters will look to advance their young careers in entertaining bouts.

LA prospect Joel Diaz will look to go to 3-0 in the jr lightweight division meeting Portland's Kendall Ward;

and Palmdales 3-0 junior welterweight DonYil Livingston will fight a six rounder against Loren "The

Rock" Myers (7-11-1) 2kos out of Fresno. In the third undercard bout, Costa Mesa's 1-2 Bobby Chavez will

look to even his pro recording meeting 0-1 Juan Luna out of Stockton.
