A fiery competitor who was born in the boxing-rich city of Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico, 23-year old Angel Osuna (5-3-1, 3 KO's) now makes his home in Coachella and is gaining more and more fans with each outing thanks to his exciting style in the ring.

He will face Santa Ana's Juan Carlos Diaz (7-14, 6 KO's) in a six round junior middleweight fight on Friday.
Talented bantamweight prospect Raymundo Chacon (3-0) has impressed fans and opponents in a professional career that began earlier this year, as he is yet to lose a round in his three bouts. The Los Angeles product will look to keep his shutout streak intact this Friday when he meets up with 1-0 Montebello fighter David Reyes in a four round bout.
Also competing on the September 23 undercard will be Coachella native Guadalupe Salcedo (1-0), who faces Cathedral City's Luis Cervantes (7-5-3, 2 KO's) in a four round junior welterweight fight.
