ORANGE, Calif. - Super bantamweight Efrain Esquivias (17-3-1, 10 KOs), who was scheduled to fight Christopher Martin (27-3-3, 9 KOs) in the 10-round main event at this Friday's "Locked n Loaded" event in Ontario, Calif., has pulled out of the fight due to a high fever that set in earlier today. Martin will not face a replacement fighter.

The main event now matches undefeated bantamweight prospect Carlos Carlson (14-0, 10 KOs) of Mexico in the first defense of his WBC Latino Championship that he won versus the always-tough Javier Gallo in February. Carlson faces fellow countryman Jose Cen-Torres (13-4, 1 KO) in the 8-round championship fight.

"We are disappointed that the Martin-Esquivias match up will not happen," said Alex Camponovo, matchmaker and general manager at Thompson Boxing. "We know this fight generated a considerable amount of interest. Fortunately for fans, we were able to elevate the Carlson vs. Cen-Torres fight to the main event. Carlson is one of our young prospects with a nice combination of skill and power. We are confident he will put on a great show."

Tickets priced at $100, $60, & $40 are on sale now and can be purchased online at ThompsonBoxing.com or by phone at 714-935-0900.

Also off the card is promising heavyweight prospect LaRon Mitchell (4-0, 4 KOs) of San Francisco. He was scheduled to fight a 4-rounder against Zachary Bunce (2-1, 1 KO) of Las Vegas until a hand injury forced him out.

Replacing the heavyweight fight is undefeated super welterweight Tavoris Teague (2-0, 1 KO) of La Habra, Calif. against Malik Bazille (1-2) of Ontario. The fight is scheduled for 4-rounds.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the first bell rings at 7:45 p.m. The Doubletree Hotel is located at 222 N. Vineyard Dr. Ontario, CA 91764 and can be reached at (909) 937-0900.

"Locked n' Loaded" is presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions and sponsored by Lucas Oil, in association with KCAL 96.7 Rocks!, KOLA 99.9, and LATV Networks.
