Boxing returns to the Inland Empire of Southern California on Saturday night with an unbeaten, yet untested fighter making his debut on American soil.

Super bantamweight John Amuzu will fight Pablo Batres in a scheduled six round bout at the Pairplex in Pomona, CA.

The bout will headline a “Pandemonium VIII” card, presented by MEZ Sports.

Amuzu (13-0, 13 KOs) from Accra, Ghana, will be making his American debut after having fought all of his professional bouts in his hometown of Accra. He is currently living and training in nearby Riverside.

Although he has an impressive record and has demonstrated power in the ring, he has fought very limited opposition. He has only faced one fighter with a winning record and that was in his professional debut.

In his last bout on May 25th, Amuzu knocked out Daniel Armah (0-8) in the third round of a scheduled eight round bout. According to Boxrec, Armah has been knocked out in every fight he has been in.

An interesting fact about Amuzu is that Saturday’s fight will be his second scheduled six round bout as the others have been eight round bouts.

Batres (4-4-1) from Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, snapped a three-bout losing streak in his last fight, decisioning Arnoldo Pacheco over four rounds on January 12th.

Although Batres has a .500 record, he has pulled off upset victories over unbeaten fighters. He holds decision victories over featherweight prospects Manuel Castro and Gabino Cota.

Batres fought twice in the United States in 2012, losing unanimous decisions to Roy Tapia and Saul Rodriguez.

Rounding out the card are three four round bouts. Junior middleweights Antonio Moya (0-1) and Carlos Meraz will square off, as well as middleweights John Hyde and Hector Lizarraga, who will be making their professional debuts. Lightweight Luis Hernandez will fight Johnny Martinez.

Mixed martial arts bouts will also be on the card.

Tickets are on sale and are priced at $100, $75, $50, and $35. They could be purchased at the door on the day of the fight or by calling (714) 933-4519.

Doors open at 6:30PM, with first bell scheduled for 7:30PM. The Fairplex is located at 1101 W. McKinley Avenue in Pomona.
