“This is a great partnership for Global Sports Streaming. Marcos Villegas has built a quality channel with a loyal following and we are honored to be working with his company.” Armando Bareño founding member of Global Sports Streaming is on a mission to expand the sport of boxing and work with Fight Hub TV which can only accelerate the process. “I’ve always felt the sport of boxing does a disservice to itself by not broadcasting the developmental stages of a fighter’s career. We will be working to broaden the viewership by broadcasting the fights that are normally overlooked by television networks. I’m very happy in joining Global Sports Streaming and Borizteca Boxing in this venture. It’s the perfect opportunity to provide live fights that provide knockouts to our core subscribers and fight fans via our platform. We look forward to this event and others that will see Fight Hub TV move into broadcasting live fights and events in 2018.”

Villegas created Fight Hub TV in 2009 and since that time has built Fight Hub into the largest and most subscribed digital platform for boxing in the world and second biggest in all of Combat Sports. Boxing fans and combat sports fans have truly found Fight Hub TV to be a great source of information on their favorite fighters and events.

Could the following news be an indicator there’s a career change ahead for Emmanuel Robles?

Super Lightweight or Hollywood actor Emmanuel “Renegade” Robles (15-3-1, 5 KOs), who trains at Old School Boxing in San Diego, is now the focus of this upcoming movie based on his life and now that it is completed, it has been entered in the San Diego Latino Film Festival.

The latest announcement we have from the planner of this event: “The 25th annual San Diego Latino Film Festival will take place March 15-25, 2018 at the AMC 18 Theatre in Fashion Valley and the Digital Gym Cinema in North Park! We invite you to be a part of our silver anniversary! It’s going to be a celebration to remember, which like cinema, will stand the test of time. Don’t miss this grand opportunity to be a part of this 11-day experience filled with film, music, art, parties, Sabor Latino – Food, Beer & Wine festival, and more!”

Taking things in stride: Emmanuel Robles’ thoughts in regards to the San Diego Latino Film Festival: “Proud to announce that this short documentary on my life as a fighter, father, and much more, directed and produced by James Valdez will be shown at the San Diego Latino Film Festival in March! Hope to see you guys there!!”

Being that Robles has a great many fans, plus a great many close friends, we suspect the turnout should be substantial.

Ten-year-old Isaiah “PitBull” Bernal is shown with his coach Juan Romo. The 75 lb. Bernal was first the Open District Silver gloves champ, then advanced to the Regionals in El Monte, Calif. and then went on to compete in the Nationals.

USA Amateur Boxing coach, Juan Romo Velasco: “We came up a little short in our championship bout but it was a good experience. We fought a really tough opponent who is currently ranked number 1 in the nation. We learn from winning and we also learn from losing. Overall it was a great fight. Proud of Isaiah Bernal who is currently Rank #2 in the U.S. Thanks to all of you for your support. We’re going to keep working hard and keep striving for that gold.”

On Friday, February 2, 2018, in a four-round middleweight bout, amateur standout Anthony Franco of The Arena in Point Loma, San Diego, Calif., secured his first professional victory and as the saying goes, ‘the hardest bout is now behind him.’ Franco won 40-36 on all 3 scorecards against a gentleman by the name of Jerome Buchanan who had lost his first five matches and then took a sabbatical from the sport. Friday’s fight was his return to the ring after a year and nine months.

A true student-athlete, Julius Ballo (bottom left) is a seven-time National Champion with a 4.2 gpa. As such, he became the 2017 recipient of the Norman Powell Youth Student-Athlete Award. He also won the 2017 Oxnard Pal National Championship Belt and twice traveled across the Atlantic to defeat the top Europeans. The youngster (r), who is from the same gym and appears to be following in Julius’ footsteps is Nico Sanchez. Sanchez has also won multiple National championships.
