Artemio Reyes vs. Sergio Perez on July 26th in Ontario, California

ORANGE, Calif. (July 11, 2013) – In another exciting addition to its “Locked ‘n Loaded” series, Thompson Boxing Promotions showcases up and coming welterweight Artemio Reyes, (19-2, 15 KOs) of Colton, Calif. against the veteran Sergio Perez, (28-14, 19 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico on Friday, July 26, 2013 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Ontario, Calif. The bout is scheduled for 8 rounds.

Reyes, who is riding a four-fight winning streak, last won in February with a second round knockout of Rodolfo Armenta. Reyes has fought most of his professional bouts in California’s Inland Empire and is excited to put on a show for his hometown fans.

“The crowds at the DoubleTree are made up of boxing diehards that know a great fight when they see one,” said Reyes, who is promoted by Thompson Boxing Promotions. “Perez presents a tough challenge because of his experience, but I put in a lot of work for this fight and I’m confident that I’ll get the victory and the fans will get what they pay for.”

In the intriguing co-feature, junior flyweights Sindy Amador, (10-0, 1 KO) of Riverside, Calif. and Jolene Blackshear (7-3, 3 KOs) of San Diego will battle for the vacant interim WIBA Jr. Flyweight world title in an 8-round fight. It is the first championship fight for Thompson Boxing Promotions at the DoubleTree Hotel. In ten undefeated fights, Amador has solidified her reputation as a bona fide brawler. Always pressing and never shy to take a punch to deliver two, Amador prefers to smother her opponents with a flurry of punches.

“That’s my style,” said Amador, who last won in April in a unanimous decision against Adrienne Alegria. “I stalk my opponents and deliver heavy punches whenever possible. Eventually they tire out and that’s what I intend to do to Jolene on July 26. Most of my opponents find it difficult to make in-match adjustments. We’ll see how Jolene handles the pressure.”
