FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


PRESS RELEASE

Where: Radisson Hotel, 2323 Grand Canal, Stockton, CA 95207 
When: Friday, May 9, 2003, 3:00 pm Refreshments will be available.

Let's get ready to rumble. Pro boxing is back in Stockton, in a big way. There will be a rumble in Stockton's jungle. Big Time World Championship Boxing and Kickboxing presents a boxing and kickboxing explosion. You would not be able to see an event like this anywhere in Northern California. Tickets are ridiculously low.

Over fifty rounds of professional boxing and amateur kickboxing on May 23, 7:00 pm, at the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium, in beautiful downtown Stockton. A number of celebrities will be making appearances, including Cruiserweight World Champion James "Lights Out" Tony; World Welterweight Champion from 1976-79, actor and activist, born in Mexico, "Fist of Steel" Stark Carlos Palomino, who has appeared in several feature films; and Middleweight Champion Oba Carr. Beautiful Las Vegas style ring girls will be at the show. Every seat in the house has a great view and tickets will sell out. Tickets range in price from $20 to $55. These seat prices are less than half of what any other typical show would charge.

Meet some of the Stockton's old-time boxers of Stockton, as well as the new up and coming champions-Fel Clemente, Featherweight Champion during the 70's; and light-heavyweight contender, during the 80's, Yaki Lopez will be present. David Martinez, from Stockton, who is 90-10 as an amateur and won the 2002 Bantamweight National Championship will be the main event. He will be fighting Joaquin Candelerro from Phoenix, Arizona. David will continue his undefeated streak.

Then the super-heavyweights will get it on. Carter Williams, 245 pounds, of Modesto, just won the World K-1 Kickboxing Championship, and who is undefeated at 2-0 as a pro boxer, will fight John Clark, of Miami, who was a defensive end for the 49ers during 1996-2000 and has appeared on movies such as Any Given Sunday, The Replacements, Varsity Blues, Waterboy, and The Jamie Fox Show. Joey Garcia, another outstanding bantamweight, from Modesto, will fight Jorge Lopez of Phoenix. Maurice Hooks, light-heavyweight, of Modesto, will make his pro debut, fighting Russian, Vlad Inger. We have another light-heavyweight fight, which will pit Sheldon Callum, of San Francisco, against Olawaleo Afolabi, of London, England. The card continues with a couple more super-heavyweights that fought to a draw the last time they met, last year, and would like to settle this fight-265 pound Daniel McGerry, from Sacramento, will fight Sal Fernetti, 310 pounds, of Los Angeles.

There will also be six kickboxing bouts, sanctioned by the International Kickboxing Federation and an IKF Cruiser Championship between Brandon Banda, of Concord, and Derek Yuen, of San Jose-Derek is 11-3 and Brandon has a perfect 5-0 record.
