(MAR 17) Friday March 21,
Chantel Cordova (12-4-1) will attempt to take the next step in
her aspirations to get back to a world title fight when she
faces California’s undefeated Maria Suarez (7-0). The main event
matches two top twenty World ranked flyweights. As an amateur,
Cordova had a storied career capturing two national
championships, three golden glove titles, and was a member of
the USA national boxing team. As a professional, Cordova fell
short in her only world championship fight vs. Arely Mucino in
2011. Currently, Cordova is on a three fight winning streak
including a win over former world champion Hollie Dunaway last
The undercard bouts are packed
with Colorado Springs area boxers, including Marcus Dawkins who
is fighting on his second straight Sundown Entertainment card.
In November, Dawkins dominated Angel Smith Torres winning every
round then capping the fight off with an electric knockdown.
Chris Galvadon (2-0) had a
stellar 88-16 amateur record and has started his professional
career unbeaten. However, he will have to put his undefeated
record on the line vs. fellow undefeated boxer David Escamilla
(3-0) of Denver.
Issac Cardona (5-0) came one point away from qualifying for the
2012 Olympic Trials. Since turning professional, Cardona has
been perfect in every way possible by defeated all five of his
opponents by knockout. He hopes to continue his knockout streak
vs. Wisconsin’s Robert Brewington (debut).
Ronnie Reams (3-3) was a superstar athlete in high school,
earning All-State honors in football, basketball, and track.
Reams made his professional boxing debut in 2012. Since nearly
upsetting Manuel Perez (20-10-1), Reams has been one of the most
avoided fighters in Colorado. His opponent, Kevin Benson (1-2),
is a true throwback boxer who is willing to fight anyone.
Already, Benson has faced two highly touted boxers.
