LOS ANGELES, December 30 - The latest outstanding talent to emerge from Oxnard, California, unbeaten junior middleweight Hugo Centeno Jr., will have LA's lights shining brightly on him this Thursday, December 1 when he headlines the 2011 season finale of Golden Boy Promotions and AEG's "Fight Night Club" at L.A. LIVE's Club Nokia. Former World Champions Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi and Michael Katsidis "The Great" are set to take in the boxing action tomorrow night.
Former amateur star Centeno Jr (10-0, 6 KO's) will battle tough Idaho native David Lopez (3-6-3) in the six round main event while in the co-feature, scheduled for four rounds in the junior lightweight division, Montebello's Santiago Guevara (1-0) faces Chula Vista's Salvador Cifuentes (1-2). Guevara shut out Naphi Mohammad in his professional debut at Club Nokia in October and based on that performance, fans will be happy to see him back in the ring this Thursday.
