Blythe, Calif. native Andrew “Chango” Cancio made his professional debut in 2006, remaining undefeated for ten bouts before his first lost. Cancio's power has brought him thirteen of seventeen wins by way of knockout, a strength he brought to the ring against Hugo Fidel “El Increible” Cazares in March by taking the knockout victory in the third round.

The great nephew of boxing legend Genaro “Chicanito” Hernandez, East LA’s Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez picked up the family business as a youngster and quickly made a name for himself on the amateur scene. Yet despite his amateur success, it was clear from the moment that he made his professional debut in 2012 that his destiny was to become a world champion. After a heart wrenching loss this past June for the NABF title to Abraham “El Chamaco” Lopez as the co-main event to Francisco Vargas vs. Orlando Salido on HBO Boxing After Dark®, Ramirez will be returning to the ring with a vengeance to gain a victory and prove he is one of the best fighters in the featherweight division.

With a 93% knockout record, fight fans can expect to see Samir’s power and strength come September 30.

Jonathan “Thunder” Navarro representing East Los Angeles has lived up to his nickname thus far, as the 19-year-old has ended five of his six wins by knockout. Having most recently taken down Marc Torres by way of technical knockout on June 4 at The StubHub Center on the undercard of Francisco Vargas vs. Orlando Salido, this fan favorite is hungry to make a name for himself in the boxing scene by fighting at Fantasy Spring Resort Casino for the very first time. As the nephew of former boxing Olympian Jose Navarro, “Thunder” has boxing his in his blood and hopes to keep up the family tradition of big victories and sensational knockouts come September 30.
