Shane Mosley Jr. Pro Debut Set For 4/26 On UniMas

Top Rank, in association with Bash Boxing, Art of Boxing Promotions, and Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, California, will bring Solo Boxeo Tecate on Unimas to boxing-rich Ventura County on Saturday, April 26, 2014.

In the special feature attraction, Shane D. Mosley Jr., the son of Three-Weight World Champion and former pound-for-pound great "Sugar" Shane Mosley, will make his professional boxing debut. The younger Mosley, who got a late start in boxing at the age of 16, will have his legendary father in his corner as trainer for his much-anticipated first bout as a professional.

Already known as the Mecca of Boxing talent, Oxnard's next generation of notable boxers will be on display at the premier boxing venue in all of Ventura County, Oceanview Pavilion. Top Rank prospect and Oxnard native Andrew Ruiz (7-0, 4KOs) will seek to improve on his undefeated record while two Oxnard residents with identical 11-1 records, Erik Ruiz and Herbert Acevedo will also appear. Riverside transplant, Super Featherweight Daniel "Twitch" Franco (7-0-2), will look to improve on his sparkling 3rd round technical knockout of Victor Serrano last month in Oxnard.

Highlighting a packed card of homegrown talent will be three undefeated blue chip prospects from the Top Rank stable, Trevor McCumby (14-0, 11KOs), Saul Rodriguez (12-0-1, 9KOs), and Erik De Leon (6-0, 2KOs). All three boxers are no strangers to Ventura County as they often migrate to work with Hall of Fame Trainer Robert Garcia in Oxnard. McCumby, a former U.S. National Champion, has become a fast rising Light Heavyweight prospect with an ever-increasing knockout rate. Lightweight De Leon, another former U.S National Champion and two-time Golden Gloves winner from Detroit, was one of the last prospects to work with the late Emmanuel Steward before the young southpaw phenom embarked on his pro career. Riverside's Rodriguez may not be old enough to drink yet but has left a bevy of opponents punch drunk since making his pro debut in 2011.

BOXING BY THE BEACH takes place on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at the Oceanview Pavilion, located at 575 E. Surfside Drive in Port Hueneme, California. Tickets can be purchased online at www.boxingbythebeach.com or by calling (805) 889-8162. Tickets start at $40 for Theatre Seating and $80 for Ringside/Stage Seating. A limited number of VIP bottle service tables are also available.


Doors Open at 6:00pm; First Bout at 6:15pm. All bouts are subject to change.
