PHILADELPHIA, PENN. / ORANGE, Calif. (Sept. 22, 2018) - Featherweight standout Ruben Villa (13-0, 5 KOs)makes his fifth appearance of the year from his hometown of Salinas, Calif. when he headlines "New Blood" on Saturday, Oct. 13, from the Salinas Storm House.
Villa, 21, returns to his hometown for the second time since winning the vacant WBO Youth featherweight championship in April. In that bout, he handedly outpointed fellow prospect Marlon Olea for his first professional title.

"It's exciting to be back in my hometown," said Villa, who is promoted by Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing. "All my friends and family are already asking for tickets. We sold out the last time we were here, and I think we'll do it again this time."
