Undefeated junior welterweight Joel Baglio, 9-0 (6 KOs), takes on Adam Ealoms, 3-1-2 (1 KO), in the main event of the latest Savarese Boxing Promotions card at the Houston Athletic Fencing Center on Saturday, Nov. 10. A southpaw, Baglio, 23, won back-to-back Louisiana Golden Gloves titles in '08 and '09 before turning pro last September. A native of Lake Charles, LA, he has a become a regular fixture on the Houston boxing scene, having fought five of his nine bouts under the Savarese banner. While Baglio has fought nine bouts in the first 14 months as a pro, Ealoms, 36, will be coming off an 18-month layoff.
In other bouts: southpaw Thomas Hawkins, 2-0, fights a heavyweight rematch against Ricardo Ramirez, 1-0. Hawkins and Ramirez were both disqualified in the fourth round for excessive holding in their first bout three months ago. Ivan Otero, 8-2 (2 KOs), faces Aaron Anderson, 2-16-1 (1 KO) in a lightweight bout.
A host of Houston fighters will be making their pro debuts on the card. Muay Thai exponent Chase Corley will have to resist the urge to kick in his middleweight debut against Germain Carson, 0-2. Featherweight Rogelio Moreno (debut) takes on Ricardo Valencia, 1-3-1. Heavyweights Isaac Teran and Cody Boutte face each other in their pro debuts.
