LOS ANGELES – Fight fans will get a sizzling preview of Golden Boy Promotions’ hottest summer yet on Friday, June 3 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. in a fight card stacked with Southern California talent.  In the TeleFutura “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” televised main event, Lincoln Heights’ unbeaten rising star Leo “Terremoto” Santa Cruz (15-0-1, 7 KO’s) looks to keep his “0” intact against former World Champion Jose “Carita” Lopez (39-9-2, 32 KO’s) of Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico in an eight round bantamweight fight.

The televised co-feature pits another undefeated prospect, Santa Ana junior welterweight Luis Ramos Jr. (18-0, 8 KO’s) against former WBC Interim World Champion Francisco “El Ahogado” Lorenzo (36-9, 16 KO’s) in a compelling eight round battle.

Plus, Coachella Valley fan-favorite Randy Caballero (10-0, 6 KO’s) makes his sixth appearance at Fantasy Springs and expects to bring his loyal fans to their feet cheering once again when he squares off in a six round junior featherweight match against Chicago’s Sergio Cristobal (3-1).

In undercard action, Coachella will also be represented by unbeaten junior welterweight Jose Vargas (5-0-2) who will meet Phoenix, Arizona’s Javier Loya (4-0, 3 KO’s) in a six round contest.

Debuting super middleweights collide in a four round fight when Mexicali’s Jose Gonzalez faces Los Angeles’ Drew Alexander.
