LOS ANGELES (January 7, 2016) – Undefeated lightweight Alejandro “El Charro” Luna (19-0, 14 KOs) will meet Mexico’s Alan Herrera (34-7, 22 KOs) in a 10-round bout as part of a full night of undercard action on Saturday, January 23 from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

In the main event undefeated Danny “Swift” Garcia and former world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero battle in a 12-round welterweight bout. Preliminary action on FOX begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and features undefeated rising star Sammy “The Sergeant” Vasquez taking on Los Angeles-native Aron Martinez, plus a matchup between heavyweights Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale and Amir “Hardcore” Mansour.

Additional undercard action features South Korea’s Min Wook Kim (12-1, 10 KOs) in a junior welterweight attraction and 22-year-old Mexican-American Luis Bello (6-3, 2 KOs) in a six-round lightweight bout.

 

Rounding out the exciting night of fights is the pro debut of Los Angeles’ Sergio Quiroz in a six-round super bantamweight affair, cousin of undefeated star Leo Santa Cruz, Antonio Santa Cruz (1-1, 1 KO) in a four-round bantamweight fight and Huntington Park, California’s Jose Gomez (4-0) in four-rounds of featherweight action.

 

At just 24-years old, Lunahas already put together an impressive 19 professional wins since turning pro in 2010. Fighting out of Bellflower, California, he defeated former world champion Cristobal Cruz over eight rounds in June and knocked out Sergio Lopez in August to close his 2015. Before 2015 he had put together victories over experienced fighters Daniel Attah and Sergio Rivera while knocking out six of his last nine opponents.

 

Opposite Luna will be the battle-tested Herrera out of Sinaloa, Mexico. Herrera was featured in a 2014 Fight of the Year candidate in Pittsburgh against hometown favorite Monta Meza Clay. The outstanding two way action inside of the ring thrilled the electric crown and nationally televised audience as both men showed incredible bravery before the fight was stopped in the 10th and final round. Herrera has won his last two fights and is coming off of a knockout of Isaias Cabrera.

 

A pro since 2010, the 28-year-old Kim dropped his debut but has reeled off 13 wins since then. After fighting in his native South Korea and China for the first several years of his career, Kim knocked out Lizandro De Los Santos in Mexico in March before stopping Luis Alberto Pelayo in his U.S. debut in July.
