Estrella TV Weights: de la Hoya 123.6, Delgado 123.4

By Jake Donovan

Diego de la Hoya looks to cap what has been a stellar 2015 run as he faces Giovanni Delgado in a scheduled eight-round bout Friday evening at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Both fighters made weight for the evening's main event, which will air live on Estrella TV, also streaming live on RingTVLive.com. de la Hoya tipped the scales at 123.6 lbs., while Delgado came in slightly lighter at 123.4 lbs. 

The bout marks the fifth ring appearance on the year for de la Hoya (12-0, 7KOs), who is coming off of a 10-round virtual shutout over Jesus Ruiz in September. The 21-year old boxer from Mexicali - whose cousin is Hall of Fame boxer-turned promoter Oscar de la Hoya fights in Las Vegas for just the third time in his young career, having mainly fought out of California.

Delgado (15-3, 9KOs) fights for just the second time outside of his native Mexico. His lone other stateside appearance came in his last bout, a 10-round loss to Joseph 'JoJo' Diaz in May. 

Also on the telecast: 
  • John Karl Sosa (13-0, 6KOs) faces durable spoiler Alan Sanchez (16-3-1, 8KOs) in an eight round welterweight bout. Both fighters weighed 146.4 lbs;
  • Horacio Garcia (29-1, 20KOs) and Raul Hidalgo (24-13, 18KOs) square off in a super bantamweight bout slated for eight rounds. Both fighters weighed 123.4 lbs. for the televised opener.

Remaining bouts on the show - including a middleweight bout involving hot prospect Jason Quigley - will be streamed live on RingTVLive.com.

Most of these guys are like 21-23. At that age, I don't mind these recycled opponents. One of these guys will distinguish themselves soon enough.

And this AGAIN proves my point that these prospects will only face each others leftovers! He is fighting Jo Jo Diaz's leftovers. And the leftover as usual has lost 2 out of 3 of his last 3 fights. Damn, how…
