Hailing from Caguas, Puerto Rico, Jayson Velez made his professional debut in 2007 and his U.S. debut in his ninth fight in June 2009 triumphing over Jesus Bayron at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In 2012, Velez returned to Madison Square Garden to face Salvador Sánchez II, winning the WBC Silver Featherweight Championship. Velez has continued his winning streak through 2014, most recently taking down Miguel Soto in a second round technical knockout victory in April 2014 in Puerto Rico. Velez will debut at LA FIGHT CLUB which marks his first fight of 2015.
A professional since 2012, Daniel Huracan Ramirez of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico is looking to add another win to his record when he faces Velez on June 4. Fighting in the U.S. in all of his 2014 bouts facing top prospects Guy Robb, Aaron Garcia, and Eric Hunter, the Mexican fighter is looking to impress in his first fight of 2015.
One of the most exciting prospects in the sport, 19-year-old super featherweight Christian Chimpa Gonzalez has thrilled fans by winning each of his professional bouts by knockout, seven in the first round. Fresh from a sixth-round stoppage of Julio Sarinana at The Belasco Theater on March 6 that forced him to rise from the canvas for the first time to win, LA’s Gonzalez always brings the thrills on fight night.
