Thursday weigh ins complete for Friday Huerta vs Martin showdown

May 19, 2011 No Comments

The Hangar at the Orange County Fair and Event Center is not only spacious, it dazzles the fight fans with great lighting effects and a huge jumbotron.

In Friday’s Telefutura Sólo Boxeo Tecate main event in the The Hangar at the O. C. Fair & Event Center, Golden Boy Promotions in association with Roy Englebrecht Promotions has one of those dream match-ups featuring two very popular and well established local featherweights, Charles Huerta (16-2-0, 9 KO’s) from the Los Angles area and Christopher Martin (21-0-2, 6 KOs) from the San Diego area. Both have a reputation for being explosive nonstop boxers who never fail to entertain.


This special edition of “Fight Club O. C.” is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate and AT&T. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the first bell will sound at 7:30 p.m. The delayed Telefutura broadcast will begin at 11:30 p.m.

This bout will go along way to determine which of our local heroes will be moving on to face the likes of Toshiaki Nishioka (38-4-3, 24 KOs) of Toyko, Japan, Rico Ramos (19-0-0, 10 KOs) of nearby Pico Rivera, CA, Teon Kennedy (17-0-1, 7 KOs) of Philadelphia, PA, Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. of Bayamon, Puerto Rico and the man who just got done beating Vazquez, Jorge Arce (57-6-2) of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico.

Chris "the San Diego Kid" Martin of Chula Vista, Ca.

In 2010, Christopher Martin of Chula Vista, CA. reeled off five impressive wins and none more impressive than his whooping of Chris Avalos on national TV.

He followed that performance with a TKO of Jose Luis Araiza (29-2-0) and an unanimous decision victory over Yogli Herrera (22-13-0). The WBC and IBF organizations took notice and moved Martin up into their Top 10 rankings.

Charles Huerta, the pride of Paramount, CA, is hoping to bounce back after his split decision loss to Raul Hirales Jr. (13-0-1) on January 28 at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in San Diego. The 24-year-old Huerta had won five straight before the loss. Huerta, who is now into his fourth year as a professional, once fought and beat Martin when the two were amateurs.

At today’s weigh-in both Huerta and Martin weighed an identical 122 pounds.  The combined win and loss record of their opponents? Huerta’s opponents were 167-132-30. Martin’s opponents were 255-174-23.

In the co-main event, junior lightweight prospect 21-year-old Ronny Rios (13-0-0, 6 KOs) out of Santa Ana is hoping to keep his unbeaten record intact when he goes up against Georgi Kevlishvili (12-1-0, 3 KOs) out of Moscow, Russia in an eight round contest. At today’s weigh-in, Rios weighed 130 pounds, Kevlishvili weighed 128.
