Roman Morales, Francisco Santana Take The Next Step

By Francisco Salazar

Two young prospects tonight hope to continue their path towards becoming legitimate contenders in their weight class.
 
Headlining the seven-bout “Central Coast Championship Night” card is super bantamweight Roman Morales fighting Jose Iniguez in a scheduled eight round bout at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez, CA.
 
In the co-feature bout, super middleweight Francisco Santana will fight Dustin Reinhold. Both fights are scheduled for eight rounds of action.

Gary Shaw Productions will promote the card.

Morales (13-0, 6 KOs), from San Ardo, CA, is coming off an eight round unanimous decision victory over Jonathan Arellano on September 21st. Morales overcame a 3rd round knockdown he suffered at the hands of Arellano, eventually dropping him later in the fight on his way to the wide decision victory.

Morales also has an eight round unanimous decision over Alexis Santiago in July. Despite having knocked down opponents in Arellano and Santiago, Morales has won his last four bouts in a row by decision.

This will be Morales’ eighth fight at the Chumash Casino Resort.

Iniguez (6-14, 1 KO), from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, will be fighting for the first time outside of his native country.

Although he does not have a stellar record, Iniguez is 3-3 in his last six fights, including a four round unanimous decision over Gregorio Ronquillo, who entered the bout unbeaten.

Santana (14-3-1, 7 KOs) from nearby Santa Barbara, has won his last two bouts following his eight round unanimous decision loss to Jermell Charlo in October of 2011.

In his last bout on September 21st, Santana stopped John Worthy in the first round of a scheduled six round bout. His other two losses were to Karim Mayfield.

Reinhold (5-3, 2 KOs), from Fall River, MA, lost a close six round unanimous decision to unbeaten Delen Parsley in his last bout on May 24th.

Reinhold had won four of his first five bouts, before losing two of his last three bouts.

Three fighters from nearby Santa Maria will also appear on the card.

Featherweight Rufino Serrano (13-4) will fight Tijuana’s Edwin Solis (3-2-1, 3 KOs) in a scheduled six round bout.

Flyweight Maria Suarez (2-0-1) will fight Abigail Castaneda (3-1-2) of Torrance, CA in a scheduled six round bout. It is a rematch of their four round majority decision draw on September 21st.

Middleweight Eric Prado (0-2-1) will fight Victor Medina (3-3) of Los Angeles in a scheduled four round bout.

Two more bouts will round out the card.

Tickets start out at $25, with ringside seats going for $65. Doors open at 5PM, with first bell scheduled for 5:30PM local time.

The Chumash Casino Resort is located at 3400 East Highway 246 in Santa Ynez.
