Omar Chavez vs. Roberto Garcia Set - August 12 in Monterrey

By Ryan Burton

Super welterweight contender Omar "Business Man" Chavez (36-3) is looking to build off of his April 29th 2nd round stoppage victory over Ramon Alvarez. The knockout avenged his 2014 unanimous decision loss to Alvarez who is the older brother of Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez.

International boxing agent Sean Gibbons has advised BoxingScene.com that the Zanfer Promotions fighter will return to the ring on August 12th in Monterrey, Mexico against rugged veteran Roberto "Amenaza" Garcia (40-3) of Weslaco, Texas. Garcia has reeled off 12 straight victories since a 2010 loss to Antonio Margarito.

Chavez hopes that a victory over Garcia will bring him closer to a title shot at 154 pounds.

IN OTHER NEWS: Former world title contender Carlos Carlson (22-2, 12 KOs) marks his return to the ring next Friday, July 21 against the ultra aggressive Isaac Zarate (12-3-2, 2 KOs) in Thompson Boxing Promotions' "New Blood" 8-round main event.
 
The six-bout card originates from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif.

Carlson vs. Zarate will be streamed live on TB Presents: New Blood. Watch the action on ThompsonBoxing.com and Facebook Live beginning at 7:45 p.m. PST / 10:45 p.m. EST.

Tickets for "New Blood" are priced at $40, $60, & $100 and are available for purchase online at ThompsonBoxing.com, or by calling 714-935-0900.

Carlson is seeking redemption after suffering a knockout loss to long tenured WBC bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka in March. It was Carlson's first attempt at a world title.
 
Carlson, based in Tijuana, Mexico, is jumping to the featherweight division for his comeback fight. He battles Zarate, a well-known slugger from Carson, Calif. who also is moving up in weight.

Carlson will no doubt receive a challenge from the naturally bigger Zarate. Carlson, however, appears unfazed at the size difference.

In the co-feature, bantamweight Cristian Ayala-Nieto (11-1, 4 KOs) of Mexico will fight an opponent to be named later (8-rounds). Nieto is coming off a thrilling, back and forth fight against Ricardo Espinoza in May. Nieto narrowly won by split decision.
 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. local time with the first bout at approximately 7:45 p.m. The Doubletree Hotel is located at 222 N. Vineyard Ave. in Ontario, CA 91764 and can be reached at 909-937-0900.
