January 25, 2018 No Comments

On Thursday evening, January 25, 2018, well-known boxing promoter Gabriel Quinones of Quinones Promociones was back at it with a full slate of fights at the nightspot Rancho Grande on Avenida Revolucion in downtown Tijuana. With Tijuana being recognized as the number one city on the planet as far as hosting Pro Boxing Shows, Quinones’ labor of love has now become a 24/7 occupation. From local standouts, like Victor “Sina” Fonseca of Tijuana and Cristian “Ruso” Olivas of Mexicali to the visitors from far off lands like JJ McDonagh and Vladimir Belujsky from Ireland and Israel Duffus who now resides in Los Angeles after moving from Panama, locals are getting exposed to the very best. Like soccer and American football, local boxing fans can’t get enough of this passionate sport with its fascinating characters.


On tonight’s fight card they’re featuring the following headliners:

(top, left) southpaw, middleweight JJ McDonagh (14-3, 7 KOs) from Mullingar, Ireland, BR-GID: 517294 who will be facing up and comer Cristian “El Perron” Aquilar (5-12, 1 KO) BR-GID: 762060. from Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico.

Then, in a four round light heavyweight bout, Ruben “Bubi” Porras (left) (1-27-2, a victim of 18 KOs) is scheduled to take on Pierre Williams (4-0, 3 KOs) BR-GID 782425 from San Diego, Calif. by way of Chicago, Illinois. Four months ago, Mr. Williams and his wife went through a harrowing experience when their child, at just five months old, had to survive a heart transplant.

(top) Israel “Bumaye” Duffus (15-4, 12 KOs) BR-GID 560448 of Los Angeles by way of Panama, will now be facing Juan Carlos Moreno (2-20-2) after his scheduled opponent Ricardo Campillo became unavailable. Due to his Fred Astaire like dancing prowess with his wife on YouTube, the couple’s has now become an Internet sensation.

The intimidation factor was in play when these two gentlemen met for their weigh-in on Wednesday.

Also on this fight card is a 19-year-old lightweight Austin Larry Manning, Global ID 825818, DOB 7-1-98, from Indianapolis, Indiana who will be making his Pro Debut against 28-year-old, Juan Lopez (0-3), DOB 4-30-89, from San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico.
