Home Grown Prospects Top Card at Bayou Events Center

By Peter Lim

A parade of home-grown prospects, all in the infancy of their careers, will do battle at the latest Savarese Boxing card at the Bayou City Events Center in Houston on Aug. 1.
 
Lightweight Omar "Pinky" Tello (1-0, 1 KO) will be dedicating his fight to his cousin Demazo Tello who lost his life in a motorbike accident on July 17. Demazo Tello, 23, was an amateur middleweight who had competed at the state and national levels on several occasions. He was on the brink of turning pro at the time of his untimely death.
 
"I was his best friend so it was hard," Omar Tello, 18, told The Houston Chronicle. "My cousin, Demazo Tello, was the one who got me into this sport at age 9, so I'm dedicating this to my cousin."
 
"He had a killer left hook to the body," Tello said of his late mentor and role model, "the same left hook that I like to use."
 
Rounding out the roster of prospects are junior middleweight Jonathan Cashmere (4-0, 3 KOs), welterweight Felipe Reyes (4-0, 3 KOs), featherweight Pablo Cruz (3-0, 2 KOs), middleweight Giani Giambi (2-0, 2 KOs), cruiserweight Hasam Mohamed (2-0, 2 KOs), light heavyweight Jeremy Hall (debut) and heavyweight Roberto Silva Jr. (debut).
 
In the main event, junior welterweight Daniel Garcia (11-7-2, 8 KOs) faces Juan Serrano (2-7-1, 2 KOs) over six rounds.
