Mario Ramirez and Dewayne Beamon headline Friday’s boxing show in Tijuana

November 16, 2017 No Comments

With a full slate of 13 bouts scheduled for Friday’s show at the Salon Mezzanine Hall in Tijuana, the Tijuana Boxing Commission had their hand’s full processing the 26 combatants that showed up at noon on Thursday, November 16, 2017.


In Friday evening’s Main Event you have Mario “Guero” Ramirez (r) of Camalu, Mexico (8-1) being challenged by Alfredo Pitta (l) of Tijuana (4-9-1).

In the co-featured, they have Ricardo Valdovinos (l) from San Diego, Calif. (5-0) vs Alejandro “Alex” Castaneda (r) of Rosarito, B. C., Mexico (3-1).

Making his return to the ring after a three-year layoff is Rafael Ramirez (l) from San Diego (18-4-2) going up against Manuel Garcia (r) of Tijuana (5-13).

After looking over at his physique, anyone, including Super Flyweight Samuel Medina (8-4) of La Paz, B. C., Mexico would be a bit apprehensive about fighting a gentleman like the 32-year-old Dewayne Beamon (12-0) who is visiting from Las Vegas, Nevada by way of Goldsboro, North Carolina.

Standout Amateur Brandon Cruz (1-0) returns to Tijuana for his second Pro bout against Carlos Escobedo (0-4) from Tijuana.

Brandon Cruz should enjoy both a height and reach advantage.

After waiting and waiting for Edgar Ornelas from San Luis Rio Coronado to show up, Gilbert Garcia of San Diego (1-0) finally got his chance to weigh-in.

(bottom) After completing his weigh-in, super featherweight Edgar Ornelas (0-5) from San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico is ready to face off with Gilbert Garcia (1-0) from San Diego. It’s tough to root for the underdog, especially when that underdog, Ornelas, has yet to get past the second round.

In Bout #6, they have Mario Ramos (2-0) from the Bound Boxing Academy in Chula Vista, Calif. going up against Victor Barraza (0-6) from San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora. Barraza went the distance just once and that was against Hector Aguilar who at the time had a record of (0-7). Aguilar’s current record is 2 wins and 13 losses. In those 13 losses, Aguilar has been knocked out 12 times.

In Bout #7, Mulapi Enjani (2-5-2) of San Diego by way of the Republic of the Congo recently switched gyms to join the new Sweet Science Boxing gym of Bonita, Calif. He’s hoping to turn around his win/loss totals with a win over Adriel Osuna (0-2) from Ensenada, Mexico.



You might be thinking Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez (3-0, 126 lbs.) is a prohibitive favorite in Bout #5, especially since he’s from the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard, Calif. Plus the youngster now has a reputation for KO’ing sparring partners. Little is known about his opponent Jorge Mosqueira (1-0, 130 lbs.) who outweighed Rodriquez by five pounds and he’s from La Paz, B. C., Mexico.

Some of the boxers weighed in but their opponent was not present which means they will likely have to wait until longer for the confirmation of their contest.
