Fight Between Two Undefeated Welterweights Added To Munguia-Johnson Card
A bout between two undefeated welterweights has been added to the Jaime Munguia vs. Tureano Johnson card.
On October 30, Munguia and Johnson will collide in the main event of a Golden Boy Promotions card. The action will take place inside the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. It’ll air live on DAZN.
Golden Boy has announced that on the undercard will be a battle between Rashidi Ellis and Alexis Rocha. The two will compete for the vacant WBC International Silver Welterweight Title. Ellis has a perfect record of 22-0 with 14 knockouts to his credit. Rocha is also perfect at 16-0 with 10 knockouts.
Here’s what Golden Boy Promotions CEO and Chairman Oscar De La Hoya had to say about the matchup.
“Boxing fans want to see competitive matchups, and that’s exactly what we are delivering. Rashidi Ellis and Alexis Rocha have spent the past few years climbing up the rankings on many of our shows. But now, they will risk their undefeated records against each other for a chance to get one step closer to a world title. That same night, we’ll also be presenting another historic matchup for women’s boxing as Olympic Bronze medalist Marlen Esparza takes on standout contender Sulem Urbina. We can’t wait to host this stacked night of action.”
Ellis is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Eddie Gomez back on November 23, 2019. Rocha’s most recent bout was on February 14. He bested Brad Soloman via unanimous decision.
