  Luis Feliciano Faces Genaro Gamez
In Super Lightweight Showdown Aug. 22


A pair of undefeated super lightweight prospects will collide at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, as Luis Feliciano (12-0, 8 KOs) takes on Genaro “El Conde” Gamez (9-0, 6 KOs) in the 10-round main event of the August 22nd edition of Thursday Night Fights.

Feliciano, 26, is defined by his humility outside the ring and his killer instinct inside it. The Milwaukee, Wis. native has garnered a large following in Puerto Rico, where he has fought several times since turning pro in 2017. Now, Feliciano — who is under the tutelage of renowned trainer Ben Lira and manager Ralph Heredia — is ready to take his career to the next level.

“I’m more than ready for my career to take off,” Feliciano says. “I’ve been staying really busy here and in Puerto Rico. That’s going to make the difference in this fight, along with my skills. This fight is going to make me into a contender, so I’m going to work very hard to get my hand raised.”

Gamez is a San Diego native who possess an explosive style that combines speed and power. Since making his debut in 2016, he’s maintained an unblemished record. Now, the 24-year-old is facing the toughest test of his career — one that will determine which fighter is destined for a world title shot.

"I’m back and I’m stronger than ever,” Gamez says. “I’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this, so I’m excited to demonstrate my skills. When I have a big challenge, I perform even better, so I look forward to obtaining a great victory.”

In the co-main event, Blair “Flair” Cobbs (11-0-1, 7 KOs) of Las Vegas takes on Steve “Manos de Oro” Villalobos (11-0-1, 9 KOs) of Mount Vernon, Wash. in a 10-round welterweight battle.

Raul “Cougar” Curiel (6-0, 4 KOs) of Tamaulipas, Mexico will fight Chris “Milly” Ousley (11-0, 9 KOs) of Chicago in a six-round super welterweight bout.
