Ruben "El Puas" Olivares, considered by many the greatest bantamweight champion of all time, will be the special VIP guest for the May 16 edition of Golden Boy DAZN Thursday Night Fights at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. The event will be headlined by the 10-round battle between "Ruthless" Romero Duno (19-1, 15 KOs) and Juan Antonio "Mozo" Rodriguez (30-7, 26 KOs) for the vacant NABO Lightweight Title. (photos by Tom Hogan)

In a career that spanned more than 100 professional fights, Olivares had 89 victories including 79 by knockout. The Mexico City native holds the record for the most wins in unified title bouts in bantamweight history at six and compiled separate streaks of 22 and 21 consecutive knockouts. In 2003, The Ring placed him at No. 12 on their list of the greatest punchers of all time.

A member of the Boxing Hall of Fame, Olivares remains a beloved figure in his home country. After his retirement, he became a mainstream entertainment star with appearances in numerous Mexican movies. Olivares will be in attendance for this event to meet fans, sign autographs and take pictures inside the Fantasy Springs Special Events Center. The meet-and-greet is open to the public with the purchase of a ticket to the event.
