Colorado & New Mexico Well Represented

By; Robert Padilla

Adrian Mora from Denver, Colorado and also with family ties to New Mexico, will take another big jump in competition Friday as he steps up to face Juan Carlos Rubio at welterweight. Rubio is 30-7, better known for his victory over Francisco Bojado. Bojado is one of Main Events' top Prospects. This bout will be televised on Telefutura as the co-main event on Friday night Oct. 22 nd . Mora had an extensive amateur career and is 12 and 0 as a pro. Many in Colorado believe Mora to be one of the best there if not the best in Colorado. After his last victory over Steve Quinonez (30 wins 8 loses 1 draw), Mora’s stock has gone up and Colorado has a top prospect on their hands.

Also on this card is Vicente "El Picosito" Garcia of New Mexico, also a welterweight that is 18 years old and is trying to climb up the ladder with his 4 wins and 0 loses on his record. Garcia will be facing Ruben Lopez of Mexicali, Mexico with a record of 10 wins 7 loses and 1 draw with 8 k.o.’s a step up for Garcia. Garcia also had an extensive amateur career and is being looked at by Golden Boy Promotions for future fights with them.

At this time Colorado and New Mexico has some of the nations top prospects in their camps and out of all these prospects both states stand a good chance of producing a World Champion. Mora and Garcia are only a portion of prospects in these states. All I can say is when these prospects fight in your state it is top talent and the fans have a chance to see them in action as someday all these prospects maybe World Class fighters.
