Chris Martin vs. Jose Bernza Rematch on February 22

Orange, CA - Thompson Boxing Promotions returns to the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario with a double shot of boxing action to open up 2013.

Newly signed Christopher "Marvelous" Martin showcases his super bantamweight talent in the main event on Friday, February 22. Martin faces Mexican veteran Jose Angel Beranza in a fight set for eight rounds for the WBC US super bantamweight vacant title.

It's a rematch for redemption!

Martin (25-2-3, 8 KOs) has some notable wins on his record such as his 10-round split decision win over Chris Avalos and his knockouts of Robert Guillen and Mexican KO artist Roberto Castañeda last summer. The clever counter-puncher Martin has suddenly discovered his power stroke and needs it against Beranza (35-25-2, 27 KOs) who is the first to defeat Martin. The San Diego prizefighter is anxious to remedy the score.

"When Beranza and I last fought he surprised me with his timing. I expected him to come at me but I ended up having to chase him. He out boxed me and would hit and hold. I got frustrated. This time it's going to be different. I have been working on sitting down on my punches. I got stoppages in my last two fights and feel confident in my ability to walk away with the win. We're going to go hard for 8 rounds.

Tickets for "PATH TO GLORY" are priced at $75, $45, and $30. They are available now and may be purchased by calling 714-935-0900.

In the co-main event the lanky San Bernardino destroyer Artemio "King" Reyes Jr. tangles with Tucson's Rodolfo "Bam Bam" Armenta in a welterweight clash set for eight rounds. Reyes (18-2, 14 KOs) is anxious to reclaim a higher ranking in the welterweight division. He won't find it a breeze when he faces Arizona's Armenta (12-9-1, 9 KOs) who has faced some of the best prospects in the division. Reyes' last win was a blowout of Mexico's Pipino Cuevas Jr. and he is anxious to make 2013 a great year.
 
Colombian middleweight standout Alex "El Principe" Theran (10-0, 6 KOs) has an even match up against Hawaii's Michael Balasi (10-1, 7 KOs) in a six round bout. It's the southpaw slugger's first venture into American soil after three consecutive knockout wins in Colombia and he hopes to make a good impression. Balasi is also a southpaw and his only loss was a split decision in the Philippines back in 2006.

Riverside super bantamweight Juan Reyes (8-1-1, 1 KO) returns to the Doubletree Hotel for a fourth time. At the moment, the whirlwind pugilist does not have a contracted opponent but will be in a six round contest.

Others fighting on the February 22nd are Giovanni Santillan (6-0, 4 KOs) vs. Michael Lucero (12-17-2, 4 KOs); Joshua Conley (4-0, 4 KOs) vs. Juan Carlos Rojas (4-4, 4 KOs); and Xavier Montelongo (2-0-1) vs. Pedro Toledo (1-0-1).

Bouts subject to change. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the first bell rings at 7:30 pm.  The Doubletree Hotel is located at 222 North Vineyard Avenue in Ontario. The hotel phone number is 909-937-0900.
