Above photo was taken on August 17, 1989, in San Diego, on the night Tony Deluca defeated Willy Salazar by a split decision to win the NABF Light Flyweight title. It pays homage to the three legendary boxing figures, (l to r) referee Pat Russell, boxer Tony “Bazooka” Deluca and trainer Juan Bustamante.

The boxing schedule below is updated on a regular basis and uses bold type to denote either a local boxer, a boxer with local ties or a major championship. A show that is scheduled to air on TV is in Green. A local show is in Red. If you see an error or know of a local boxer or boxing event that’s been overlooked, please advise us so we can make that correction.
