CHICAGO, IL, August 26, 2011 – Golden Boy Promotions teamed with Dominic Pesoli’s 8 Count Productions and Solo Boxeo Tecate to bring a rousing five bout card to the UIC Pavilion in Chicago (with portions broadcast live on Telefutura), showcasing some of Chicago’s most promising prospects against other young fighters looking to dash their hopes. Both Adrian Granados and Frankie Gomez found themselves facing perhaps the sternest tests of their young careers when they went to war over eight rounds. Granados, who recently impressed local fans by replacing an injured David Estrada on short notice and looking impressive in earning a draw against the far more experienced Lanardo Tyner took unbeaten 19-year-old East LA native Gomez into deep waters, never backing down from the knockout artist who could not get the finish he was looking for, though he got the judges’ nod. On the undercard, Daniel Sotelo scored an impressive knockout in his debut, Omar Figueroa continued his winning streak with a second round stoppage, Luis Santiago won a decisive victory over the limited but durable Clifford McPherson, and Juan Bustamente, though he put together some impressive combinations, deserved a better opponent.

In the first bout of the evening, Chicago welterweight Daniel Sotelo (143 lbs.) made his professional debut against Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Ronnie Fuentez (now 0-2, 144 lbs.).  The Wisconsin native looked tense but determined, and came out swinging. Sotelo took a few shots to the body and head but kept his composure as he started timing his opponent’s wide, looping punches. Tightening his guard, Sotelo covered well and countered with straight shots to the head and body. A hard cross at the top of the second minute drove Fuentez back towards the corner where he took a volley of straight punches to the head and body. As Fuentez tried to cover, Sotelo raked his body with a hook behind the elbow. A clearly frustrated Fuentez crumpled to his knees and could not recover enough beat the count, forcing the referee to stop the bout at 1:20 of the first round, and giving Sotelo his first professional win and knockout.
