It's hard to believe, but 19-year-old Frankie Gomez (9-0, 7
KO's) is already entering his second year as a professional
boxer. With wins in all nine of his bouts and rave reviews
coming from all corners, it's easy to forget how young he
is. The East Los Angeles native isn't about to slow down,
and after a 25 second knockout of Jason Davis in his most
recent bout in April, he's showing that he's ready for all
Hesperia's 26-year-old Kadaphi Proctor (7-5-1) rebounded
from some early bumps in the road during his four-year
career to win his last three bouts. Most important was his
last victory, a six round win over unbeaten Stan Martyniouk
that saw him drop the highly-touted prospect three times en
route to the upset. On July 1, he will look to show that
lightning can strike twice.
Undefeated in six fights at Fantasy Springs, Coachella's
Randy Caballero (11-0, 7 KO's) has repeatedly packed the
venue with fans eager to see his heavy hands at work. At
just 20 years old, he's fighting for his first title and,
with a three fight knockout streak going with wins over
Felix Perez, Francis Ruiz and Sergio Cristobal, he's aiming
to make Alexis Santiago his next knockout victim.
20 years old and unbeaten like his July 1opponent, Phoenix's
Alexis Santiago (7-0-1, 2 KO's) wants to separate himself
from the pack by scoring a big win over Caballero on
national television. A professional since 2009, Santiago has
impressive skills and speed in the ring and he's aware that
he'll need his full tool set to turn back Caballero in their
eagerly-anticipated title fight.
