    “James is one of the most talented competitors in the state right,” said 559 Fights president Jeremy Luchau. “He’s not only the 559 Fights champion at 185 pounds, but also ranked No. 1 in the state and winner of last year’s state tournament. It’s an honor to have a guy like that representing your promotion.”

  • Top ranked cruiserweights clash for 559 Fights strap

    FRESNO, Calif. – Two of the top ranked cruiserweights in the state will square off Saturday at Valdez Hall in Fresno at 559 Fights 22.
    Kerman’s No. 3 ranked Leo Cantu puts his 559 Fights Cruiserweight Title on the line against No. 1 ranked Myles Shaw of Modesto.
    “This is a fight that we’ve been interested in hosting for some time now,” 559 Fights President Jeremy Luchau said. “These guys squared off in 2012 with Shaw winning a decision on the regional finals. Both guys have been mainstays in the state tournament and two of the more consistent fighters in the state.”
    Cantu (8-2-1) defeated Hanford’s Wilbert Rogers in December to claim the 559 Fights strap. Meanwhile, Shaw (8-2) was busy the same month winning the California State Amateur Title.

    Tickets start at just $20 and can be purchased at the Fresno Convention Center Box Office or at www.559fights.com.
    “This is another solid fight card for 559 Fights and features three big-time title fights,” Luchau said.
    In the co-main event, Fresno’s Art Hernandez (8-3) defends his Welterweight title against Oakland’s Karl Mitchell (6-7) and Fresno’s Jesse James (4-0) takes on Las Vegas’ Michael Perez (6-4) for the vacant Middleweight crown.
    “Hernandez has been a guy that’s fought often for 559 Fights and has always been a pleasure to work with. We are really looking forward to this fight to see where Hernandez stands in the state-wide ranking,” Luchau said. “James is coming off a state-championship performance in the tournament and takes on one of Las Vegas’ tough guys. This should also be an interesting fight.”
    559 Fights will also showcase a lightweight showdown between Visalia’s Sandor Escobar (8-3) and Visalia’s Armando Perez (3-1) and a women’s showdown between Delano’s Yvette Ontiveros (0-0) against Modesto’s Justine Estrada (1-1).
