Thursday Night Fights return to Houston March 26th at the Grand Plaza!
In the Main Event, undefeated Light Heavyweight prospect and former amateur standout Alfonso "El Tigre" Lopez from Cut 'N Shoot (11-0, 9 KO's) goes for the Texas Super Middleweight Championship against "Tough" Billy Thompson (8-9, 3 KO's) from Garland.
The smooth boxing Lopez is looking to capture his first professional championship against a rough and ready opponent who has taken Light Heavyweight contender Chris "Hard Hittin'' Henry and tough journeyman Richard "The Alien" Grant the distance in fierce fights.
However, it is the Co-Feature that may prove to steal the show as undefeated and wildly popular local Super Featherweight prospect Crystal "Choo Choo" Delgado (8-0, 1 KO) faces her most formidable foe to date as she takes on contender Stacey "StayLo" Reile (8-1,1KO) in a bout that is certain to produce fistic fireworks for the fortunate fight fans in attendance for this potentially epic struggle.
Reile's only defeat was a World Championship bid versus WIBF Featherweight Champion Ina Menzer in the Champion's native Germany in a hotly contested bout in which some boxing scribes had her leading on points at the fight's controversial ending in which she was apparently struck after the bell ending the third round.
Delgado is not taking Reile lightly according to promoter Park.
"This pits the classic, age old boxing matchup with the aggressive, unrelenting strength and pressure, force 'em backwards and take over with conditioning style in Delgado versus the slick counterpunching and boxing ability of Reile."
"Crystal has trained long and hard for this opportunity, and she is looking to make the most of it!" concludes Park.
One thing is for certain, this fight will produce the fever sports element and pitched battle that Houston boxing and sports fans crave and is a "Can't Miss" event in the Bayou City.
On the undercard: The Jay Johns' managed tough and crowd pleasing welterweight Jose "Topita" Gutierrez (11-5, 8 KO's) returns to local action looking to delight his following with a big win in the Grand Ballroom, and punishing cruiserweight hitter Willie "Dynamite" Edwards (5-0, 2 KO's) seeks to add another victim to his knockout ledger.
Dustin Jones, Johanna Mendez, Mark Blankenship, and Las Cruces, New Mexico prospect "Slammin'" Sammy DiPace (5-0, 3 KO's) round out this pugilistic program that ensures high drama and electrifying action.
And, as always, the lovely Hooters girls will be in attendance as waitresses to satisfy and quench your every food and refreshment needs, and the striking and gorgeous ladies from the Hooter's Calendar will do their duty as Ring Card girls to entertain those lucky folks in attendance between rounds with their magnetic eye candy that is sure to elicit hoops and howls from the packed house.
