Team Morones Boxing presents ‘Battle at the Ballpark’
Four of the Alamo City’s brightest and most promising prospects will take center stage on TMB Entertainment and Triple A Promotions’ “Battle at the Ballpark” this Saturday night, Aug. 30, inside Nelson Wolff Municipal Stadium.
Javier “The Pitbull” Rodriguez (10-0-1, 1 KO), a hard-working 20-year-old prizefighter, is quickly becoming one of the more marketable commodities in the South Texas region. With a strong work ethic, a respectful and sportsmanlike demeanor, and plenty of mental and physical durability on tap, “The Pitbull” is easily one of the more exciting and fan-friendly young fighters in the sport.
With a willingness to take risks in the ring, and a rapid and explosive work rate, Rodriguez has become a crowd pleaser. This Saturday night’s showstopper will be taking on rugged fight veteran Guadalupe Perez.
Adam Lopez (8-0, 3 KOs) is a Bantamweight phenom. He is one of boxing’s brightest stars and most talented undefeated prospects. The 23-year-old is coming off of his most impressive victory to date, dispatching the customarily crafty Omar “Badboy” Gonzalez in just one round.
Despite being largely inactive throughout 2013, Lopez is looking to make his mark as a major player in the talent-rich boxing community of San Antonio. The prolific counter puncher is making his homecoming this Saturday, and is looking to steal the spotlight from his fighting counterparts on the stacked TMB Entertainment bout sheet. He will face Leonardo Torres.
Armando “El Cartero” Cardenas (4-0, 3 KOs) is a hard-punching Junior Welterweight who is training with Joe Lopez of Angel’s Boxing Club in San Antonio. The mentor of the Alamo City’s first world champion, Robert “El Pikin” Quiroga, has done a masterful job of creating an elite level fighting machine in “El Cartero.”
With a height advantage and reach of 72 inches, Cardenas is both literally and figuratively a tall order in the ring. Although he will be facing a durable opponent in James Burns, “El Cartero” will be looking for another explosive knock-out to add to his already impressive fight resume.
Cresencio “Kid Thunder” Ramos is a highly touted amateur who will be making his professional debut. Coming off an impressive showing at the 2014 Ringside World Championships, Ramos is looking to make a huge splash as a prizefighter.
The full-time college student will be expected to impress when he graces the light blue canvas and puts his skills on display for the numerous talent scouts who will be in attendance. Although much pressure is being placed on Cresencio, the talented Super Featherweight technician has the mental and physical toughness to come through with an impressive debut performance.
Tickets are $25 for general admission, $50 for ringside seats, and $500 for special VIP tables. For tickets, call 210-675-7275.
