On Tuesday evening American promoter Golden Boy Promotions released the poster image for their April 15th show at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. That's a show set to be headlined by an all action bout between Yoshihiro Kamegai (26-3-1, 23) [亀海喜寛], the popular Japanese warrior, and Mexico's Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-3, 18).
The bout may not be a world level match up but in terms of fan friendliness there are very few better bouts with both of these men made for action bouts and both of these two enjoying real wars.
The bout is the only one to be publicly announced for the show but it's also known that there will be a number of other promising fighters on the card, such as the promising Californian Genaro Gamez (0-0), who makes his debut on the show, the unbeaten Jonathan Navarro (4-0, 3), youngster Niko Valdes (0-0) and highly regarded Light Heavyweight contender Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (15-0, 12).
For fans in California the tickets are very well priced, with the cheapest available at just $20 whilst, whilst the show is also set to be aired on Estrella TV as part of the "LA Fight Club" series.
