Two fight cards will take place in Southern California tonight featuring local talent.
At the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, unbeaten heavyweight Charles Martin (10-0-1, 8 KOs) will fight Dieuly Aristilde (9-6, 2 KOs) in the scheduled six round main event bout.
In the co-feature bout, junior welterweight Brian Jones (8-1, 4 KOs) will fight Jose Alfredo Lugo (13-20-1, 5 KOs) in a scheduled six round bout.
Five four-round bouts will complete the All Star Boxing Promotions card.

The Quiet Cannon in Montebello is located at 901 Via San Clemente, just south of Interstate 60.
