Tom Loeffler’s 360 Promotions is cranking up the heat for their January 27 bash at the Commerce Casino. The main event is the eight-round light heavyweight slobberknocker between a pair of unbeaten brawlers; Umar Dzambekov, rolling in with an 8-0 record (5 KOs) from Los Angeles, and Curtis Millender, the Placentia, CA native sitting pretty at 3-0 with 2 KOs.

This January 27 showdown, streaming worldwide on UFC FIGHT PASS, is topped off by a ten-round slugfest for the WBC Continental Americas Featherweight Championship. Undefeated phenom Omar Trinidad (14-0-1, 11KOs) from Boyle Heights, CA, is squaring off with local nemesis Jose ‘El Mudo’ Perez (11-2-2, 5 KOs) from Oak Hills, CA.

Tom Loeffler’s tossing in his two cents, “After Umar Dzambekov sent Frederic Julan packing at The Theater at Madison Square Garden last November 9, he’s stepping back into the ring on January 27. He’s up against another unbeaten tough guy, Curtis Millender. Millender’s got combat sports chops and ain’t coming to play. This fight’s a cherry on top for our 2024 kick-off at Commerce Casino.”

Dzambekov, a 26-year-old wrecking machine trained by Marvin Somodio at the famous Wild Card Boxing Gym in Hollywood, is charging into 2024 off a rip-roaring 2023 that saw him rack up six wins. Highlights include an eight-round unanimous decision over Julan and KOs against David Zegarra, Kwame Ritter, Crispulo Javier Andino, Nathan Sharp, and Anthony Fleming.

Millender, the underdog with a chip on his shoulder, is back in the ring after a decision win over hometown hero Ryan Ford last May in Alberta, Canada. His knockout reel includes Kealil Kanekoa and John Mercurio, plus he’s got a 21-9 record in the MMA cage.
