Professional boxing promoter Mike Bazan has informed us that he will be holding another fight night at Richmond Memorial Auditorium in November.
The Battle for Golden State, “The Fight for Peace,” will take place Saturday, Nov. 7 at the auditorium at 403 Civic Center Plaza.
Bazan and his SquareVision Entertainment are following through on a promise earlier this year to hold more events at the venue, which has a long history of hosting boxing matches. Bazan last held a successful boxing event at the venue in April, when he called Richmond Memorial Auditorium a “classic masterpiece” and also a “spectator’s dream as elevated, 360-degree seating guarantees a great view of the action.”
Expect plenty of quality Northern California boxers to fight Nov. 7, Bazan said. Among them, Oakland’s Bilal ‘Rebellious’ Mahasin, who was recently crowned GBO Jr. Welterweight Champion, is looking to prolong his win streak and defend his title. Also, Adam ‘Filipino Fury’ Fiel (7-0), who recently registered a devastating knockout win, will look to extend the win streak in a six-round bout.
Also, expect a return appearance from hometown up-and-comer Luis Garcia of Richmond (pictured above), who made his debut at the April event with a first-round knockout. In May, Garcia followed up the win in Tijuana with yet another knockout victory.
Garcia will be fighting again in October, Bazan said, and hopes to be at 4-0 following a bout against San Francisco’s Jonathan Zamudio on Nov. 7 at Richmond Auditorium.
In addition, another Richmond boxer, Ramon Garcia, plans to make his professional debut on Nov. 7.
These are just a few of the exciting fighters from throughout the Bay Area expected for the “Fight for Peace” event, which will also include an amateur undercard in partnership with boxers from the Richmond Police Activities League (RPAL).
The Nov. 7 matches will be fought for the purpose of promoting peace, and also funds will be raised for multiple sclerosis research, Bazan said.
“SquareVision Entertainment’s motto of peace and understanding will be the central theme for the annual events,” the promoter said.
