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 presentation of KOTC Champion, UFC, and PRIDE Bushido extraordinaire Chris Brennan. “The Westside Strangler” will be making his fight debut in Mexico coming straight out off quite possibly his toughest challenge when competing in Rumble on the Rock`s studded 8 men tournament shortly before stepping in the ring in Tijuana. His scheduled opponent is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing whiz Joey Alvarado. Representing the Machado brand of BJJ as well as his own team LA Raza MMA, Alvarado gamely takes on what could be considered for him a dream match and opportunity so early in his MMA career.
Sharing the spotlight in the card is a scheduled Kick Boxing World Championship bout in which Mexico`s National Lightweight champion Jose Guardado out of Ensenada will dispute the vacant 135 lbs. division title under the IKBA presided by Mr. Danny Rodarte. His opponent is yet to be determined as negotiations are on the table with champions from top ranked teams as Valdez Muay Thai in Los Angeles and Fairtex Camp in San Francisco, CA.
A couple Muay Thai Mexico National titles are on the line as well.
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 would 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.
Showcasing the world class talent in Boxing that Mexico is traditionally famous for, 2 bouts have been booked.
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 fight order. Their opponents Juan Carlos Urias, 4 – 4 (3KO) and Raul Mendoza, 4 – 2 (1KO) respectively come from reputable stables Cheto`s Boxing Club and Kid Melo`s Gym to make things even. All four rising fighters are exited at the opportunity of exhibiting their skills to cross fans of the fight sports.
