October 3, 2013 – Gary Shaw Productions in association with La Noria Entertainment present a special night of boxing on October 19, 2013 at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena, in Whittier, CA. Hometown hero and undefeated lightweight sensation, Alejandro “El Charrito” Luna (14-0, 11 KOs), will challenge crafty veteran Daniel Attah (28-16-1, 11 KOs) in the 10-round main event attraction. The bout will in the lightweight division. A live concert will take place after the fight where fans can enjoy the festive music of Los Canelos and Rebeldes. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Mexican flood victims.

Luna, a popular figure in his community, is excited to be fighting at home where his fans are expected to come out in masses. This marks the first time Luna will be fighting in his hometown and he’s promising to deliver a great night of boxing.

“It’s been a dream of mine to fight in my hometown ever since I started boxing at age nine.” said Luna. “The Pico Arena is walking distance from my house so I want to perform at my very best for all the fans that are coming to see me fight. Gary Shaw is doing a fantastic job and I want to thank him for bringing this fight to Whittier. I’ll be gunning for the knockout.”

Alejandro has stopped three of his last four opponents and looks to continue his winning ways as he stated, “I like to throw hard punches to the body and wear my opponent down. If I see that my opponent is hurt, then everyone who’s seen me fight knows I’m going for the KO. I’ll be happy if the knockout comes early, but will be ready to go the distance if need be.”

Gary Shaw understands the significance of promoting Luna in his hometown. He feels Luna can be a star within the Mexican community.

“Luna has deep rooted ties to his local community.” Shaw said. “In addition to being a great boxer, Alejandro has also followed his family’s life long tradition of competing in Mexican rodeo’s which is very popular in Mexican culture. Most of the males in his family have competed in the sport of rodeos, “Charreadas” in Spanish and Alejandro has kept that tradition alive on top of his great boxing career. I see Luna becoming a big star in the near future.”

LOS ANGELES, October 3 – Unbeaten in 12 of his last 13 bouts, Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez will represent his fighting family once again this Saturday, October 5, when he defends his WBA Continental Americas Super Lightweight Title against Colombia’s Humberto “Metralleta” Martinez in the 12-round main event of a Televisa and FOX Deportes-televised triple-header entitled “DINAMITA PURA EN EL RING.”

In the co-featured bouts of the evening at Centro De Usos Múltiples Del Malecón in Ocotlan, Jalisco, Mexico, La Paz southpaw Ramon “Principe” Garcia takes on Venezuela’s Juan “Pequita” Lopez in a 10-round junior flyweight bout and undefeated Guadalajara prospect Jorge “Pilon” Lara meets Distrito Federal’s Oscar “Ceviche” Ibarra in a 10-round super bantamweight match-up.

This event is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and sponsored by Corona. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. CT and the first fight begins at 6:00 p.m. CT. The FOX Deportes broadcast will air live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT and the Televisa broadcast will air on Canal 5 beginning at 10:30 p.m. CT.

The brother of former world champions Canelo and Rigoberto Alvarez, 31-year-old Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez (21-2-3, 13 KO’s) is making his own way to the top, hoping to soon add another world title belt to the family trophy case. Winner of three straight, Alvarez most recently defended his WBC Continental Americas title in July with a 12-round decision win over Reyes Sanchez, and he will look to extend that string of excellence when he battles Martinez.

Monteria’s Humberto “Metralleta” Martinez (27-7-1, 21 KO’s) is a hard-hitting competitor who emerged from the ultra-tough Colombian fight circuit as one of the most dangerous 140-pound fighters in the world. Winner of seven of his last eight, Martinez has won 12 overall fights in three rounds or less, so you can expect him to be bringing the dynamite to “Dinamita” Alvarez this Saturday.

Former WBO Junior Flyweight World Champion Ramon “Principe” Garcia (18-4-1, 11 KO’s) has won two straight over Jose Martinez and Juan Hernandez since his loss to Roman Gonzalez in their 2012 title fight, making it clear that he’s in the midst of yet another run at the championship. But to get back into the title picture, the 31-year-old southpaw from La Paz must first turn back the challenge of Valle de Pascua, Venezuela’s Juan “Pequita” Lopez (10-2, 8 KO’s) a knockout puncher looking to add a big name to his promising resume.

Unbeaten in 24 professional fights, Guadalajara’s Jorge “Pilon” Lara (23-0-1, 16 KO’s) is the latest Mexican standout to hit the 122-pound weight class, and with four consecutive knockouts to his name, he’s attempting to make a statement with each victory. His opponent on Saturday, 27-year-old Oscar “Ceviche” Ibarra (27-9, 18 KO’s), has won several regional titles over the years, most recently a WBC Silver Championship that he successfully defended three times. Now he begins the road back to the top against Lara.
