Barboza-Zorrilla clash July 15

Southern California 140-pound standout Arnold Barboza Jr. (26-0, 10 KOs) wanted the main event spotlight. He’ll get his opportunity to shine when he takes on Puerto Rican contender Danielito “El Zorro” Zorrilla (16-0, 12 KOs) in a 10-round junior welterweight showdown Friday, July 15, at the Pechanga Summit at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California.

Tokyo 2020 U.S. Olympic silver medalists Keyshawn Davis and Richard Torrez Jr. will return on the card, with Davis battling Jair “Kaiser” Valtierra in the eight-round lightweight co-feature. Torrez will open the televised broadcast in a six-round heavyweight special attraction versus Roberto Zavala Jr.

Barboza-Zorrilla, Davis-Valtierra and Torrez-Zavala will be broadcast live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+.

  • I guess Barboza got tired of waiting for Teo to agree to a fight. Zorrilla’s a pretty decent fighter. I remember thinking he was in tough in his last fight against Pablo Cesar Cano and he rolled Cano right over. Still got Barboza, but might be a good one.

  • So is Barboza just going to keep fighting nobodies the rest of his life?

  • Keen to see Richard Torrez Jr. as a pro. But he looks the size and style of old school smaller but more busy heavyweights. Dare I say it, more like a Bridgerweight.

    • Bridger is probably a good idea for him, actually. Weighed in at 228 for his first fight and he’s 6’2. Bridger limit is 224. Definitely doable.
