CHRIS BRENNAN makes fight debut in Mexico @RETO MAXIMO VII – CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT! Mixed Martial Arts . Muay Thai . Kick Boxing . BoxingFight extravaganza coming Sunday December 11th. 2005 @ Tangaloo Club in Tijuana, Mexico.
Returning to one of the hottest discotheques in Baja as venue for fight fans from both sides of the border Reto Maximo VII presents its most ambitious card to date featuring MMA, Boxing, Kick Boxing, and Muay Thai bouts. The First ever combined professional fight card to be presented south of the border!
The main course of the night will be the fight debut in Mexico of former KOTC Champion, UFC, and PRIDE Bushido extraordinaire Chris “The Westside Strangler” Brennan. His scheduled opponent is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing whiz Joey Alvarado. Representing the Machado brand of BJJ as well as his own team Raza MMA, Alvarado gamely takes on what could be considered a dream match so early in his MMA career.
Sharing the spotlight in the card, Mexico`s National Lightweight champion Jose Guardado out of Ensenada will dispute the vacant Jr. Welterweight IKBA Kick Boxing World title facing undefeated Rajesh Narine from Team Norwalk Muay Thai and Kick Boxing in a fight scheduled for seven rounds of action.
Virgilio Lozano, head of Lozano`s Vale Todo in Tijuana and ex-member of Ken Shamrock`s Lion`s Den, returns to the ring after a 4 year layoff do to an injury. Currently training under Dean Lister in San Diego, the mexican warrior faces a tough challenge in David Webber representing David Dunn`s Fight Academy in Santa Clarita, CA.
A couple Muay Thai Mexican National titles are on the line:
Omar Jimenez, out of Lozano`s Vale Todo in Tijuana and undefeated in both MMA and Muay Thai, agreed to face Erik Osorio once again after putting him out via TKO last September in a non title match. Osorio, out of famed Pedro Fernandez Pit Bull Gym also in Tijuana, currently holdsthe Light Heavyweight championship belt and asked Jimenez to a rematch putting his title on the line this time around.
Also out of the Pit Bull Gym in Tijuana, Gabriel Medina faces Ensenada`s warrior Luis Bio, out of Guardado`s Gym. This should prove to be one of the most exciting bouts of the night as by the time they step in the ring in RM-VII they will be facing each other for the third time.In a non title bout Bio took the close decision in their first outing last year and they are signed to a rematch coming early in November. This last episode in their trilogy of encounters should settle matters once and for all between these two gladiators with the winner coming out of the ring holding the Muay Thai National Middleweight title belt to his waist.
2 bouts are also booked showcasing Mexico`s world class talent in Boxing:
Out of reigning WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Alex Terra Garcia`s camp a couple young guns in Pavel Miranda, 8 – 1 (7KO) and Juan Carlos Burgos, 6 – 0 (5KO) are set to take action early in the card.
