Borizteca Boxing returns to Tijuana’s Big Punch Arena

You might be asking why would they do such a thing? Especially, after Borizteca Boxing Promotions signed an agreement with the Four Points By Sheraton Hotel in San Diego to move their operations to the U. S. where they’ll be resuming operations in early April. Truth be known: 1) the promoter has lots and lots of wonderful memories at this venue, and 2) at this time there are far too many top prospects clamoring for fights to showcase their talent.
Friday, February 28, 2020, Borizteca Boxing Promotions will be making a return visit to one of Tijuana’s most popular venues, the Big Punch Arena, to maintain their close relationship with the popular owner plus revisit this one of a kind, fabulous venue.

The following, most suitable, photos were taken Thursday, February 27, 2020 at the weigh-ins held at the Tijuana Boxing Commission Offices in Tijuana. Since some of the participants in this upcoming show were unable to attend the weigh-ins/ health screenings, but did have a legitimate reason for their lack of attendance, they were given another opportunity on Friday and of course they’ll be having the mandatory medical checkups as well.

The following boxers were not derailed and showed up promptly at the requested time. Japhethlee Llamido from Norwalk, Calif. and his opponent Johnathan Eduardo Gonzalez Hernandez from Tijuana, B. C., Mexico by way of Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico.
The 20-year-old, Japhethlee Llamido (left) Global ID 861680, Record 2-0, stands 5’6″ tall and hails from Norwalk, Calif. Llamido’s opponent in their four round Featherweight match is the 31-year-old Jonathan Eduardo Gonzalez Hernandez (right) Global ID 701797, Record 0-2, who stands 5’7″ tall.

Next we have the 26-year-old, Elias “Ingles” Diaz (left) from San Diego, Calif., Global ID 775459, Record 6-0, 4 KOs, who stands 5’10” tall. Diaz’s opponent in a four round Featherweight match will be the 17-year-old Edwin “La Sombra” Salcido (right) Global ID 871947, Record 3-1.

As a local USA Amateur Boxer, Diaz was not only dedicated to the sport but unbeatable.
Next up, we have cruiserweight Jorge Luna from Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, Global ID 885858 with a record of (0-2) set to face world traveler Big Ben Alvarez (rear) who moved to San Diego, Calif. from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada after leaving San Antonio, Chile.
Not that long ago, Benjamin Alvarez benefitted big time from being hired on as a sparring partner for Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. And what were his credentials for such an opportunity? Alvarez forty-plus Amateur bouts, and he was a member of Canada’s National Team. Also in our photo is the great one, the silver tongued devil Boxing Announcer Pablo Flores. That reminds us, we mustn’t forget to send SeƱor Flores his normal copy write fee for appearing in one of our on-line photos.
This should be a dandy with Big Ben Alvarez facing tough guy Jorge Luna.
After wowing the fans in the USA Amateur ranks, Adrian Alvarado is already off to a grand start in the Pros after defeating Claudio Duarte in his debut on February 2, 2020.
Adrian Alvarado’s opponent on Friday night will be Guadalupe Garcia from Sonora, Mexico.
In the Co-Main event is crowd favorite Jorge Alberto “El Chihuas” Brito of Tijuana.
Brito’s opponent is Juan de Jesus Angulo Gonzalez from Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico.
As you can see Juan de Jesus Angulo is nearly two inches taller than his opponent Brito. After checking with his manager, we discovered this will be Jorge Brito’s very first fight against someone who is taller than him.
The way these two gentlemen are able to control their weight and stay under the welterweight limit – simply amazing.
18-year-old Salvador Cervantes of Los Angeles, a former USA Amateur Boxer with 35 bouts under his belt, won in his debut back on June 29, 2019.
James “Fresh Prince” Earle is back after winning his first three bouts in 2019.

Shooting for the moon, we also have Darnell Price.
