Thursday weigh-ins for Friday’s Boxing Show at Four Points by Sheraton in San Diego

Bobby D Presents is back at the Four Points By Sheraton Hotel on Friday evening, November 2, 2012 for another exciting evening of boxing. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

In a six round super featherweight clash it will be Eduardo “Lobito” Rivera (8-0-1, 3 KOs) from Lakeside, CA by way of Merida, Yucatan, Mexico returning to Four Points after defeating Adolfo Landeros on August 30, 2012. He’ll be taking on the veteran Juan Jose “Pinocho” Beltran (27-20-3, 18 KOs) from Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico and fireworks should be expected.

In Bout #1, Eduardo Rivera (L) will face the veteran Juan Jose Beltran (R).

How so? Over the last three years, Beltran has a record of 7-9-1. During this period, he’s knocked his opponent out 7 times and been KO’d himself 7 times. Those stats tell us Mr. Beltran prefers to keep the judges out of it. Win or lose, he wants the decision to be unmistakeable, clear cut.

Next up, Basilio Nieves (14-1-0, 3 KOs) is taking on 24 year-old Alejandro “Hands of Steel” Solorio (4-5-0, 3 KOs) of Huntington Park, CA in a six round super flyweight bout.

Should we be impressed by Nieves’ record? No. His record is padded. He’s only fought two guys with a winning record and his one Technical Knockout loss came to Luis Itzincab who is now 3-5.

Solorio is returning to San Diego where on February 25, 2011, he lost a close mixed decision to Hanzel Martinez who is now a bantamweight contender with a record of 18-0. Why Solorio fought Martinez is the question many people have been asking.

Solorio’s answer at Thursday’s weigh-in: “At that weigh-in, I could tell he was bigger and obviously heavier but we had come a long way. We needed the money. So, we took the fight. On fight night, it was obvious that he was much bigger.”

In Bout #2, they have Alejandro Solorio (R) going up against Basilio Nieves (L).

Then, light welterweight Emmanuel Robles of San Diego, CA (5-0-1, 2 KOs) will be taking on Jose “Gunpowder” Mendoza (7-8-0, 3 KOs) from Jamay, Jalisco, Mexico. Robles’ quickness is undeniable, his power has been questioned. Since Mendoza has lost his last eight, I doubt we’ll be learning much from this contest.

Light middleweight Brandon “Gladiator” Adams (7-0-0, 3 KOs) will face 35 year-old Yair Aguiar (10-17-0, 4 KOs) from Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. It appears Adams’ handlers are content to bring him along slowly. His toughest opponent to date was in his debut against San Diego’s mixed martial artist Erin Beach. Aguiar has a record of 4-15 in his last 19 bouts and being a last minute fill in, he arrived yesterday.

In Bout #5 we have Brandon Adams (L) versus Yair Aguiar (R). All photos: Jim Wyatt

A four round flyweight match has Jesus Rojas (1-0, 1 KO) taking on Johnny Boy Quiroz (1-1) of Oceanside, Ca. Quiroz is a product of Rhino’s Boxing in Vista, CA.

In a four round super featherweight match it will be Roque “Rocky” Ramos of Escondido, making his pro-debut against Carlos “The Solution” Morales (0-1-2) of Los Angeles.

Morales’ record is certainly a mystery considerong the scores issued in his first three contests. In his only loss to Allan Benitez on January 20, 2012, the scores read, 38-38, 38-39 and 37-39. Then, July 12, 2012, versus Jonathan Davis, they read 39-37, 38-38, and 38-38, a mixed decision draw. In his last bout, a little over three weeks ago, versus Xavier Montelongo, one judge gave him every round scoring it 40-36. The other judges went 38-38 and 37-39 for a split decision. In other words, the judges are going to have their hands filled on Friday night.
