Burbank’s Damien Lopez Debuts At L.A. Battle Club
As is often the case, every local boxing show has a pro debut somewhere on the card. Unlike the main event that usually features experienced professionals seeking to take one step closer towards glory in their chosen sport, the Debutante fighter, along with a legion of family and friends, anxiously waits for his first step into the squared circle as a newly minted professional. During the June 11, 2016 L.A. BATTLE CLUB show in El Monte, California, Welterweight Damien Lopez will do just that. And that first professional bout will be ingrained in his memory forever.
Growing up in Burbank, Lopez has been boxing since he was 10 years old. He also enjoyed playing football at Burbank High School where he played nickel back and was named defensive player of the year in the Class of 2013. Along the way, Damien always pursued his dream to box professionally. His older brother David had a fine amateur career and inspired Damien to box. In 2014, Damien won the National PAL Boxing Tournament. In 2015, he competed in the U.S. Boxing Olympic Trials in Spokane, Colorado Springs, and Memphis.
Out of the ring, Damien enjoys drawing, riding bicycles, and watching movies with his family. His two favorite boxers growing up were Mike Tyson and Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.. He admires both of their styles and what they did in the ring.
L.A. BATTLE CLUB will be presented by PR SPORTS in association with Bash Boxing.
