Cordova vs Lopez on 8/13; Gonzalez vs Perry Showdown

With two high profiled televised fights scheduled just a few weeks apart, Zeferino Entertainment is set to explode onto the scene as two of her brightest stars take on their most dangerous opponents on televised fights.  On August 13th welterweight prospect Marvin Cordova (21-1-1, 11 KO’s) clashes with Josesito Lopez (26-3, 15 KO’s) in a ESPN televised fight at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.
 
“This is a tremendous match up with Lopez with relentless pressure and Cordova with his natural boxing talent and speed,” commented Guy Taylor of Zeferino Entertainment, “the one that can dig deep will pull this off, the only true winner is the fans.
 
Cordova, who had been on the sidelines for the last eleven months, recognizes that a dominant win will almost certainly put him in the top ten.  But he finds himself in the unenviable position of the underdog as he takes on Lopez in his backyard.
 
    “Marvin had some managerial issues, which put him on the sidelines,” commented promoter Zeferino Entertainment’s Zef Ramirez, “but the delay proved beneficial.  Marvin is hungrier, and I haven’t seen a sign of ring rust at all.  I feel confident that Lopez, and the boxing world, is going to see the best Marvin Cordova on August 13th.”
 
    Although Lopez is the favorite and is coming off a four fight winning streak that saw him defeat the likes of prospect Patrick Lopez and former Colorado based prospect Anthony Mora, he too is coming in off a notable layoff of ten months.
 
     With the fight being on the undercard of the Chris Arreola versus Manuel Quezada fight, Ramirez is confident that Cordova will more than make up for lost time however.  “This is such an exciting card, and with it being televised it ensures that the eyes of much of the boxing world will be on Marvin when he steps in the ring.”

But two weeks before Marvin Cordova faces Lopez, another one of Zeferino Entertainment’s brightest up-and-comers in Abel Perry (12-3, 4 KO’s) will be looking to capitalize on a high profile televised fight.  Perry will be fighting in a swing bout against Jonathan Gonzalez (8-0, 8 KO’s) in an ESPN televised card from the Buffalo Run Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma tomorrow.  Ramirez anticipates the fight will be the televised swing bout, which features Delvin Rodriguez in the main event.  Although Gonzalez has never gone the distance, and in his last fight scored a dominant knockout over tough Yoryi Estrella, Ramirez feels this is the perfect fight for Abel. 
 
“Abel is as talented a welterweight as you’ll see,” commented Ramirez, “and I don’t think Gonzalez has ever fought a guy with as much durability, speed, and overall talent as Abel.  I know that Abel doesn’t have as flashy a record as Jonathan, but if he were to defeat him on ESPN, I think it puts him in line for a NABF or USBA ranking.”
