Former world title challenger Vicente “Chente” Escobedo will meet “Lightning” Lonnie Smith in a junior lightweight ten-rounder in Woodland, Calif., that will serve as the headliner of the March 3 edition of Solo Boxeo Tecate.

In the co-feature, teenage junior featherweight Manuel “Tino” Avila, from nearby Fairfield, will fight an opponent to be determined in the six-round co-feature.

When he arrives at the Woodland Senior Center, the 30-year-old Escobedo (24-3, 14 KOs) will be fighting in his hometown for the first time in his pro career.  The 2004 Olympian is coming off a two-bout winning streak over Walter Estrada and Rocky Juarez.

The 24-year-old Smith (14-2-2, 10 KOs), a Las Vegas native, is on a nine-fight unbeaten tear that most recently includes a unanimous decision over David Rodela and a third-round stoppage of Eduardo Arcos.

Avila (6-0, 2 KOs), a 19-year-old Golden Boy prospect, is three months removed from a four-round split decision win over David Reyes on the Bernard Hopkins-Chad Dawson undercard.

The show will be promoted by Golden Boy in association with Don Chargin Productions, Paco Presents, Jorge Marron, and Let’s Get It On Boxing.
