Heavy-handed Pacific Northwest banger Steven “Hands of Gold” Villalobos (4-0, 4 KOs) will look to add a fifth consecutive win on Saturday night at the Mount Baker Theater in Bellingham, Washington, facing off with Idaho’s Vince Morales in a four round Jr. middleweight fight. The bout will be one of four boxing contests featured on Avelar/Galeas Promotions’ inaugural ‘Fight Night Championship,’ which will have both boxing and MMA on the card.

Villalobos, of Burlington, Washington, has scored all four of his wins by knockout and all within the first round. The twenty-six year old from Burlington, Washington started boxing only two years ago and had a relatively short yet successful amateur career, claiming a Tacoma Golden Gloves championship in 2016. He turned pro last September with a first round knockout of Colby Grayson and has stayed fairly busy since, fighting three times in 2017. He last fought on June 24th, scoring an impressive first round TKO over William Fernandez. (continue reading…)
