Ruben Torres vs. Richard Zamora Headlines Thompson
Boxing’s Next Event On Aug. 14
Undefeated lightweight prospect, Ruben “Ace” Torres (11-0, 9
KOs), who is nearing the point of being called a contender,
will headline Thompson Boxing’s “We. Are. Back.” on
Saturday, August 14th, 2021. Torres will be taking on
Richard "Diamante" Zamora (19-4, 12 KOs), of San Luis
Potosi, Mexico, in a scheduled 8-round bout.
540 days after their last live event, this will be the first
fight with fans in attendance and everyone is encouraged to
get their tickets now.
This event will take place at the Omega Products
International Event Center in Corona, CA. Doors open at 5:00
pm PT with the first fight starting at 7:00 pm PT.
Torres, now 23-years-old from South Central Los Angeles, is
trained and managed by Danny Zamora, who has worked with
Torres since the start of his career.
“I am so excited to have the fans back," said Torres. “I
feed off the crowd’s energy and it makes me want to put on
the best performance possible for them. Knowing I’ll have
friends and family there makes a huge difference, but I
still have a job to do against Zamora who is no slouch
inside the ring.”
Torres is nearing the point of being a ten-round fighter and
facing an experienced veteran like Zamora will be a good
test. He has goals of a world title shot soon.
“I am excited about this fight because this opponent brings
a lot to the table," Torres continued. "He has fought Mario
Barrios, Antonio Moran, and many other great fighters and I
want to show that is the level that I am on."
“We are happy to announce that we can finally open safely to
the public. We were able to successfully promote our shows
during this tough time through our live streams,” said Ken
Thompson of the 321 Boxing series that launched in July of
2020. “But it is the fans who make each event unique with
the atmosphere, they bring that extra motivation to the
fighters. This will surely be a sold-out show and I can’t
wait to see everyone having a great time, enjoying great
