Gonzalez-Mtagwa Card: Estrada, Javier Molina Added

Los Angeles - World Boxing Council (WBC) Featherweight Champion Jhonny Gonzalez (49-7, 43 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico puts his title, and his pride on the line as he fights on his country's Independence Day, Thursday, September 15 at the County Coliseum in El Paso, Texas as he takes on the Tanzanian slugger, Rogers Mtagwa (27-14-2, 19 KOs).  The 12-round World Championship bout is presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions and Promociones Del Pueblo and will be broadcast live on ESPN Deportes and Televisa.

Also appearing on the event are the former 2008 U.S. Olympic teammates and promising prospects, Super Middleweight Shawn Estrada (12-0, 11 KOs) and Welterweight Javier Molina (8-0, 4 KOs), who are both of Mexican-American descent and living in East Los Angeles and Norwalk, respectively.

Estrada will be faced with a tough, 8-round fight against Zane "The Train" Marks (17-6, 10 KOs), who had once put together an impressive 14-fight winning streak before that run was stopped during an unsuccessful world title fight challenge.  The Scottish-born Marks, who is currently residing in Louisiana, is excited to get back in the ring against the young Olympian.

Olympic teammate Molina, who also boasts an undefeated record, started his career with four KOs, followed by four dominant decisions after recovering from a lingering hand problem. Molina looks to re-establish his KO power, when he steps in the ring with a hard hitting opponent from Golden Meadow, Louisiana in John Revish (10-4-2 8 KOs).  In his 16 professional bouts, Revish, who studies psychology at LSU, is a veteran of two world title challenges, by far the most experienced opponent for the young Molina.

The night of fights also showcases two 10-round Super Featherweight bouts featuring four talented Mexican fighters ready to celebrate their countries independence boxing style, in the ring.   The first 10-round fight features Miguel "Mickey" Roman (34-8, 26 KOs) of Ciudad Juarez taking on Mexicali's Antonio Jose Meza (29-11-1, 21 KOs).

In the other 10-round bout, Antonio Escalante (23-4, 15 KOs) of Ciudad Juarez,  goes toe-to-toe with Pipino Cuevas Jr. (13-7-11 KOs) of Chihuahua, son of one of Mexicos most decorated former World Champions, Pipino Cuevas.
