By Francisco Salazar

Fringe welterweight contender Alan Sanchez will face Ramses Agaton tonight at the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California.

The eight round will headline a six-bout co-promotion between Paco Presents and Don Chargin Productions.

Sanchez (19-3-1, 10 knockouts) will be fighting not far from his hometown of Fairfield. The 26-year-old Sanchez has not fought since June 23, when he stopped former contender Miguel Angel Huerta at the end of the fifth round.


Since his defeat at the hands of Luis Collazo in September of 2013, Sanchez has won his last seven bouts.

Agaton (20-6-3, 10 KOs) has served as a gatekeeper to fighters at welterweight and junior middleweight. Agaton, who resides in the Mexico City area, scored victories in 2014 over former fringe contenders Alejandro Barrera and Ronald Montes.

In recent fights, Agaton has lost to contenders Konstantin Ponomarev, Carlos Ocampo, and Egidijus Kavaliauskas. Agaton has won two of his last three bouts.

Light heavyweight Ryan Bourland (14-1, 5 KOs), from nearby Vacaville, will face Jose Hernandez (18-3-1, 9 KOs) in an eight round bout.

Bourland has won his last seven bouts, while Hernandez has put together a string of six consecutive victories.

Bruno Escalante (15-3-1, 6 KOs) will square off against Javier Gallo (25-14-1, 15 KOs) in an eight round bantamweight bout.

Hard-hitting cruiserweight Blake McKernan (6-0, 5 KOs) faces Miguel Cubos (11-14, 8 KOs) in a six round bout.

Brooks is located about 45 miles west of Sacramento.
