Press Release
By Cestus Press

On March 20, 2009 , the Laredo Entertainment Center in Laredo, Texas , will be packed with boxing fans as ESPN's “Friday Night Fights” boxing series invades the beautiful gateway city for a night of unforgettable fights. The event is promoted by Banner Promotions and features Mexican warrior Fernando Beltran Jr., Russian banger Ruslan Provodnikov, tough Ji Hoon Kim and undefeated, former 2008 United States Olympian, Demetrius Andrade. What further makes the card a must-see for fans from Laredo and Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico , is the addition of three of Cestus Managements fighters Rodolfo “ BABY COBRA” Gomez, Robert “NIGHTHAWK” Luna Jr., and James “QUICK DRAW” DuBois.

Gomez and Luna have already wowed boxing aficionados and showcased their immense talent to Laredo fans by producing electrifying performances before the local contingent which caused an immediate buzz. James DuBois is a known Texas boxing star with an all action style that is always entertaining to fight fans. With all three as part of the non-televised portion of the under card, the live audience in attendance is sure to experience a great night of explosive fights.

Gina Iacovou, Cestus Management’s CEO , said, “This is a great card and great event for Laredo as the fans there really know their boxing. By Banner Promotions bringing ESPN's Friday Night Fights, the fans are guaranteed an awesome evening of boxing. Also, the local fans will be able to enjoy their own fighters like Rodolfo ( BABY COBRA) Gomez, Robert ("NIGHTHAWK") Luna Jr. and James ("QUICK DRAW") DuBois, so I’m sure that this fight card will be one that will not be forgotten in Laredo.

Mike Michael, who is the Founder of Cestus Management, said, “We (Cestus) are very happy to be involved in an ESPN Friday Night Fights undercard and would like to thank Art Pelullo and his team at Banner Promotions for their support. Michael continued, “this night of boxing in Laredo is going to be hardcore. Just look at the fight line up as you have Fernando Beltran Jr. in the main event and a fully loaded undercard with Ruslan Provodnikov, Ji Hoon Kim and the up-and-coming former U.S. Olympian Demetrius Andrade. Add in the Cestus fighters “BABY COBRA” Gomez, “NIGHHAWK” Luna Jr. and "QUICK DRAW" DuBois and the action will be nonstop."
