What’s happening locally

Featherweight boxer Jorge “Tito” Ruiz, who originally trained with Sergio Melendrez when the Alliance Training Center was located on 3rd Avenue in Chula Vista, Calif., is now on what you would call the comeback trail. He’s living in Gilbert, Arizona and training at the EOS Gym/Physical Fitness Center. Ruiz returned to the ring on Feb. 15, 2019 after more than a year’s absence due to a bronchial problem. In his first fight back, he managed to defeat a gent by the name of Jose Eduardo Poom to improve his record to 12-3 with 5 KOs.

After averaging just one fight per year over the last three years, he’s now planning to fight once every two months and we just discovered he’ll be back in the ring on April 12th in Tijuana on the latest Jorge Marron/Promociones Mayen/ Bobby D Presents fight card at the Grand Hotel Tijuana. From here on out, he’s planning to have this steady diet of five fights per year, one every two months.

What’s up with USA Amateur boxing standout Jason Meza, who has been training religiously at The Arena in Point Loma for many years? He was so good, you’d often see him assisting a visiting Pro while they were there training for an upcoming fight. Well, our buddy pal posted this photo mentioning that he is now in Barcelona, Spain? Inquiring minds want to know what’s up? Jason has decided to take some time off from Boxing and headed east to Florida to see his older brother Justin who is in college and plays on the school’s baseball team. Justin then surprised his younger brother with this fabulous trip to Spain where our tourist friend is currently. So, it’s our suggestion that you make a list of the souvenirs you want Jason to purchase for you and we’ll pass this list along to the world traveler… Jason Meza.

Two great women boxers will be battling it out for a second time after 10 years since their first clash. The 38-year-old interim WBA World Female Bantamweight Champ Jackie “La Princesa Azteca” Nava (35-4-3, 16 KOs) got the worst of it back on April 30, 2009, from the current IBF World Female Super Bantamweight Champion Marcela Eliana Acuna. In that fight which took place in Luna State Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Acuna won a unanimous decision after scoring a late knockdown. The now 42-year-old Acuna, who at this point is 49-7-1, 20 KOs has won 12 of her last 13 bouts. It’s one of those cases where the women involved can claim they’re not getting any older, they’re only getting better. Both have fought recently: Acuna in December of last year and Nava in November.

Thank you to my coaches at The Arena and Gamebred Training Center. I’m going to do my best to represent you guys in the cage. I love all you guys!

What’s up with one of the best self-promoters ever: Dewayne “Mr. Stop Running” Beamon?

Today, this San Diego resident by way of Goldsboro, North Carolina, was videotaping a message for his peeps back in North Carolina. He wanted to explain how he is working every angle possible in his quest to get this shot at a World Title in Cleveland, Ohio. When winding up his message, he explained the only show of interest came from the champ Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (47-2, 39 KOs) of whom Beamon (16-1-1, 11 KOs) said, “I would graciously take his offer in a heartbeat.”

Instead of Gonzalez, we learned later that Beamon’s management team would like him to first face 22-year-old Christian Eduardo “Rocky” Bacasequa from Mexicali, B. C., Mexico on Friday, April 12, 2019, at The Big Punch Arena in Tijuana. After hearing the news, the only consideration Beamon had was that this fight has to be streamed live on YouTube.com early enough so his people back home in North Carolina could watch on the live feed from Global Sports Streaming’s Best in Boxing.

With Best in Boxing, all the action is right there where you want to see it. From the controversial Carlos Castenada vs Armando Tovar bout to the Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker battle with the cunning Cristobal Cruz.

After critiquing Christian EduardoRocky” Bacasegua (12-3-2, 4 KOs), it appears this Super Flyweight is a bit of a lightweight who has just 2 victories over an opponent with a winning record. Plus, when he goes for broke with his big overhand rights and misses, this “Rocky” often leaves himself open for a counter left hook.

Is your ticker tape of things you want to read piling up because you have too many sources and too little time to fact check everything? We’re going to try our best to help you cut back with shorter explanations, no pop-up ads and only the storys that we believe will interest you the most.
