Reyes Boxing Promotions hosted their first fight card in Lowell, MA last Saturday, October 29. The card featured fighters from across the New England region. There were 14 total fights, most of which were extremely competitive. More than 1500 fans were in attendance and spent much of the evening on their feet.

“We had fourteen action packed fights and the fans were at the edge of their seats throughout the evening,” said Michael Reyes of Reyes Boxing Promotions. “Gabriel Morales-Kevin Rodriguez was one of the most exciting local fights in a long time, with Morales winning a local title via split decision. Both fighters were incredibly hungry and left it all in the ring. Reyes Boxing Promotions’ very own Marqus Bates was in a great fight as was Luke Iannucci. Justin Morales-Brandon Sandoval was a barnburner too. These are the kind of events we’re going to continue to promote and what local boxing is truly about.”

Miguel Madueño Looks to Bounce Back Against Juan Huertas in Plant City this Friday

hompson Boxing’s lightweight Miguel Madueño (27-1, 25 KOs), is looking to bounce back from the first loss of his career when he faces Juan Huertas (16-3-1, 12 KOs), on Friday, November 4th, at the Whitesands Events Center in Plant City, Florida. The 10-round bout will broadcast worldwide on with the WBO Latino Championship on the line.

“I have had a great camp and made major improvements since my first career loss,” said the power-puncher Madueño, who has an 89% KO ratio as a pro. “In my last fight I didn’t feel like myself, but now I am ready to bring the old ‘Explosivo’ back. I will knock this guy out and put the division on notice.”

In Madueño’s last fight, he lost a twelve-round decision to former world champion Jezreel Corrales, in March of this year. Since that fight, Madueño has not missed a day in the gym and has used the loss as motivation.

“I wanted to be a world champion so bad and put a lot of pressure on myself to perform in my last fight,” said Madueño reflecting on his fight that had implications for a future world title shot. “I know now what I need to do, and how not to beat myself. I put myself in a position that made my last fight much harder.”

Huertas recently upset undefeated Jonhatan Cardoso in June of this year and is hoping for a similar result on Friday, but Madueño doesn’t see it happening.

“He is in a lot of trouble,” stated Madueño. “He has been knocked out twice, and I don’t see a way he can take my power at all. I am one of the hardest punchers in the division – when I hit him, he will fall, and he isn’t getting back up.”
