LAS VEGAS (October 23, 2018) – Unbeaten prized prospect Angelo Leo (13-0, 7 KOs) will be making his return to Sam’s Town Live in an 8-round super bantamweight showdown and will now face Filipino veteran contender Glenn Porras (31-7, 19 KOs) after Lolito Sonsona (22-2, 4, 9 KOs) pulled out the fight due to illness. Leo has been unstoppable since making his Mayweather Promotions’ debut on November 18, 2017 on the Smith vs. Williams undercard earning a 4th round KO victory. Porras is looking to use his veteran experience to get the win and make a statement in front of the Las Vegas crowd. This installment of Mayweather Promotions’ Sin City Showdown will be sure to keep those in attendance on their feet.
Sin City Showdown is headlined by Juan Heraldez, undefeated super lightweight contender, clashing with Maynard “Mr. Marvelous” Allison in an 8-round showdown. The Sin City Showdown Facebook live stream will begin at 5p.m. PT/8p.m. ET.
The fight night action continues with hard-hitting unbeaten lightweight prospect, Rolando “Rollies” Romero (5-0, 4 KOs) who is on the rise in the division. With eagerness to compete against the best in the lightweight division, Romero remains determined and confident in upholding his undefeated record as he climbs his way to the top. He is prepared and more ready than ever to face his next opponent, Dieumerci Nzau (11-5, 8 KOs).
Las Vegas native, Andres “Savage” Cortes (8-0, 4 KOs), currently holds an undefeated record of 8-0, 4 KOs, and remains hungry. He diligently works to perfect his skillset under the guidance of his older brother 3x national champion, Luis Cortes. Like most fighters, Andres has his eye on the prize in becoming a world champion but notes that boxing has taught him to be dedicated, disciplined, and patient. He looks ahead to face Texan Omar Castillo (5-0, 2 KOs) on October 27th and improve his unbeaten record.
