Ronny Rios, Julio Diaz Co-Headline Telefutura, July 28

INDIO, CA. - The Coachella Valley’s hotbed of world-class boxing action - Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA.- will host another exciting night of fistic action on Saturday, July 28 featuring rising star Ronny Rios and former World Champion Julio Diaz in co-featured fights.

The Rios and Diaz fights, which will be contested against opponents to be named, will headline TeleFutura’s “Sólo Boxeo Tecate.”

This event is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate.  Doors open at 6:30pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:00pm PT.  The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:00pm ET / PT.

Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45, are on sale now and available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com .

Ronny Rios (18-0, 8 KO’s) cleaned up as an amateur, winning two United States titles and one National Golden Gloves Championship before turning professional in October of 2008 with a first round knockout of Fermin Perez.  Since then, no one has come close to beating the 22-year-old from Santa Ana, Calif. who has defeated Roger Gonzalez, Jeremy McLaurin and Guillermo Sanchez in his last three fights.  On July 28, he headlines the card and makes his Fantasy Springs debut.

Former Two-Time World Champion Julio “The Kidd” Diaz (38-7, 27 KO’s) returns to the ring for the first time in over a year on July 28, and at 32 years old, he is primed and ready to make a run for a third world title.  The winner of two of his last three fights, defeating Herman Ngoudjo and Pavel Miranda, the popular battler from Coachella is happy to have his home town fans in his corner for this pivotal bout.

Opponents for Rios and Diaz along with a full card will be announced shortly.

[quote=richardt;12298455]Great, another protected fighter going against the infamous TBA, or comes to fight, or veteran, or looking to pull off the upset, or looking to snap losing streak or a number of other ways to describe another setup for Rios.[/quote]…

Great, another protected fighter going against the infamous TBA, or comes to fight, or veteran, or looking to pull off the upset, or looking to snap losing streak or a number of other ways to describe another setup for Rios.
