This past weekend the city of Stockton, California, was overwhelmed by the “BADDEST MAN ON THE PLANET” Mike Tyson. The youngest heavyweight champion of the world at the age of 20, in 1986 was in town for his one man stage show, UNDISPUTED: TRUTH that was a sell-out.

The main event was to showcase the 15 year old Filipino-American super middleweight Michael Ridgley who sports a record of 15-0 as an amateur. Due to the illness of his opponent and no late substitute, his fight was cancelled. The Yaqui Lopez stable was still ready to showcase their stars.

The event started with a huge bang as one of Lopez’s top bantamweights Mexican-American Mario Velasquez pitted against Paul Scott of the PAL Police Athletic League from Vacaville California. The quick heavy fisted Velasquez used a left hook to score a devastating stoppage in the first round. The fans in attendance rose to their feet and gave and a rousing applause amazed at the skills of Velasquez. “When I felt that left hand connect, I knew he would go down,” Velasquez stated.

The second fighter from the Lopez gym was 67 pound Victor Manriquez who was going against David Villalobos of the Felipe boxing stable from Lathrop California. In a hard fought battle, two small warriors were going at it from the start of the first round to the third and final round as Manriquez pulled out the victory.
