Professional boxing returns to Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage, California this Saturday, June 24 with the 73 edition of World Fighting Championship (WFC), a card headlined by young undefeated Las Vegas sensation Devin Haney along with some of the best local talent. The show will also feature Devon De La Hoya, son of boxing great Oscar De La Hoya, and Joel Diaz Jr., son of the respected trainer Joel Diaz, in separate amateur bouts.
Haney (15-0, 10 KOs) of Las Vegas will take on Angel Aispuro (8-5-2, 5 KOs) of Mexico in an eight round lightweight bout. Haney, who is 18 years old and one of the hottest rising prospects in professional boxing, will be seeking his fifth victory of the year.
Also in the card is local prospect Javier Padilla (2-0, 2 KOs) of Rancho Mirage, who is managed and trained by Joel Diaz, as well as the popular Dominic Serna Jr. (1-0, 1 KO), who is managed by former two-time world champion Tim Bradley.
