Super bantamweight Danny Roman (11-2-1, 5 KOs) of Los Angeles is preparing to take on Jonathan Alcantara (7-11-2, 1 KO) of Sonsonate, El Salvador. Roman is proving to be among the most popular fighters on the Southern California boxing circuit. He typically overwhelms opponents with his rapid-fire jab and sound counter punching. He has won three straight, two by knockout, and is hungry for another KO win. But, before he steps foot into the squared circle at Thompsons Boxing’s “Path to Glory” event on Friday September 26th, he stepped in the 96-7 KCAL Rocks! studios to face off with Stu, Tiffany & Jimbo!
The Stanley Cup, quite possibly the coolest trophy in all of sports, will make a visit to Riverside at Romano’s Chicago Pizzeria this Sunday. The LA Kings has an amazing post season run to win the Cup for the second time in three years, and Kings player Jack Ferreira will bring it to Riverside for a couple of hours of the day he gets to spend with the Cup on Sunday evening from 6pm to 8pm. If you’d like to see it up close or take a picture with it, they’re asking for cash donations to benefit the Riverside Community Parks Foundation. Get more details here.
For all of you taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge….Here’s a bit of comic relief to reward your efforts!
Thompson Boxing Promotions returns to the Omega Products Outdoor Arena on Friday, Aug. 22, with a stacked “New Blood” card featuring free-swinging featherweight Juan Reyes (10-1-3, 1 KO) of Riverside meeting Victor Capaceta (4-6-3, 2 KOs) of Tijuana in a 6-round fight. Reyes is no stranger to the Omega Products Outdoor Arena, having put on an all-action brawl against Jonathan Arellano last August that ended in a highly competitive draw. Various media sitting ringside opined that the Reyes-Arellano scrap would have made a great main event for ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights” telecast. But before Reyes heads into the Omega Products Outdoor Arena he headed in Studio with Stu, Tiffany and Jimbo!
This Sports Anchor paid homage to the late, great comedian by name-dropping 22 Robin Williams movies during his short broadcast!
Catch Efrain Esquivias, as he looks to get back on track after a rare defeat, on Friday July 25th, at the Doubletree in Ontario as part of Thompsons Boxing Promotions “Locked ‘N Loaded”. But, before Efrain heads into the ring, he hung out with Stu, Tiffany & Jimbo!
This is epic! Way to go dude!
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of doing photos at what many considered the most stacked fight card in kickboxing history. The Forum was the location for Glory 17 – Last Man Standing. First of all, I have to give props to Glory for choosing LA as the spot for such a great event. The night started with five undercard fights, and then was simulcast on Spike TV for the Glory 17 portion of the night. After that, it switched to PPV for the Last Man Standing 8 man tournament. That tournament was crazy. Three fights in one night to win it, and these guys brought it!
The undercard was great. A number of the fighters have also fought locally for Dennis Warner’s WCK, and to watch them on this kind of stage was exciting…
