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.
The pair now headline a 14-bout amateur mixed martial arts card that features some of the Central Valley’s top talent.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and fights start at 7.
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).
Weighins will take place on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at The Spike and Rail in Selma. Weighins are open to the public.
