Roberto Garcia-Victor Cayo Tops ESPN Bill on May 1

Historic Hialeah Park, "the world's most beautiful race course," will enter into a new and exciting era of sports entertainment when Warriors Boxing presents "Noche de Combates," a special edition of the popular ESPN Thursday Night Fights, on May 1, 2014 at this iconic South Florida venue.

According to promoter Leon Margules of Warriors Boxing, the ten-round welterweight main event that evening, matching accomplished veterans Roberto "La Amenaza" Garcia (34-3, 22 KOs) of Weslaco, TX and Victor "Mermelada" Cayo (32-4, 23 KOs) of Santo Domingo, DR, should be an action-packed affair.

"Garcia is on the comeback trail and he's won three straight fights dating back to last August," commented Margules. "He fought for the WBC International Light Middleweight title against Antonio Margarita in 2010. He lost a unanimous decision, but that's the only defeat on his record dating back to 2004."

"Cayo is also trying to work his way back into title contention as well," Margules said. "He lost a tough fight last year against a real good fighter named Emmanuel Taylor. But in his most recent bout, he knocked out his opponent in the first round!"

In the televised ten-round middleweight co-feature, undefeated Jonathan "Mantequilla" Gonzαlez (17-0-1, 14 KOs) of San Juan, PR will put his near-perfect record on the line against an opponent to be determined.

The undercard will include a ten-round light heavyweight bout featuring knockout artist Yunieski Gonzalez (13-0, 13 KOs) of Havana, Cuba, who will put his perfect record on the line; a six-round middleweight bout in which James McGirt, Jr. (22-3-1, 11 KOs) of Vero Beach, FL, will return for the first time since 2010; a six-round middleweight scrap between Inocente "El Lucero Spirituano" Fiz (16-0, 10 KOs) of Havana, Cuba, and Devon Moncrieffe (9-2, 4 KOs) of Kingston, Jamaica; and a six-round cruiserweight affair featuring undefeated Cuban Vilier Quinonez (7-0, 4 KOs) of Havana.

"I am honored to be working with Leon Margules and Warriors Boxing on this event at historical and beautiful Hialeah Park," said Warriors Boxing COO, Luis DeCubas. "I would like to thank ESPN's Senior Director of Programming and Acquisitions Brian Kweder, as well as John J. Brunetti, Sr., John J. Brunetti, Jr., and Frank Fiore from Hialeah Park for helping to make this great event a reality."

 Tickets for "Noche de Combates," which will be on sale starting Monday March 17, can be purchased at www.ticketforce.com, as well as www.hialeahpark.com, and also at the Hialeah Park Racing & Casino box office. For more information, call the special boxing hotline at 786-483-7444.

Hialeah Park & Casino is located at 2200 E 4th Avenue in Hialeah, FL. On fight night, Thursday May 1, 2014, gates will open at 6:30 PM ET and the first fight will be at 7:00 PM ET. All bouts are subject to change.

Garcia is one tough bastard. He went the full distance with Antonio Margarito and has never been knocked out in 13 years of fighting. Cayo has been in with great fighters, but usually gets KTFO when he steps up. Cayo has to try to outbox Garcia... I don't think he can...

Hialeah Park getting some boxing action is awesome. Most likely I'll attend this as there are a few undercards which are very interesting.

[QUOTE=UTEP]Easy W for Garcia. I wonder if he'll be drained at 147 though, he looked big at 154.[/QUOTE] He made 154 in pretty much 10 days. As long as he isn't heavy right now he should be fine. This fight is at 150
