Michael Dutchover vs. Manuel Mendez Headline
3.2.1. Boxing Card on November 1st!
(October 2nd) Thompson Boxing Promotions is pleased to present the newest instalment of its successful boxing series 3.2.1 Boxing featuring three exciting-and-compelling bouts, live on Sunday, November 1st, 2020. The free stream will air on the Thompson Boxing Promotions website (www.thompsonboxing.com), as well as their Facebook and YouTube pages.
3.2.1. Boxing will take place at the Omega Products International Event
Center in Corona, CA, and will start at 4:00 p.m. PT / 7:00 p.m. ET.
In the 8-round main event, super lightweight Michael “The West Texas Warrior” Dutchover (14-1, 10 KOs), of Midland, TX, who is co-promoted with Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing, will make his second headlining appearance on 3.2.1 Boxing as he faces Manuel "La Tormenta” Mendez (16-7-3, 11 KOs), who fights out of Colton, CA. Dutchover will look to continue to build on the success off his last win over Jorge Marron Jr. (18-2, 6 KOs).
Dutchover, who is coached and managed by Danny Zamora, has a high knockout ratio and is known for his all-out attack. His only loss came in a controversial stoppage during a match against Thomas Mattice in his hometown of Midland, TX, on a ShoBox main event back in 2019. In his last bout, Dutchover bounced back by beating Jorge Marron Jr. by a wide-unanimous decision on the first 3.2.1 boxing card of the year.
In the 6-round co-feature, junior middleweight Richard “Cool Breeze” Brewart Jr. (7-0, 3 KO), of Rancho Cucamonga, CA, will face the toughest test of his career as battles Louis Hernandez (8-0-1, 6 KOs), of Jackson, MS. These two undefeated prospects put their unblemished records on the line in what should be a no-holds-barred affair.
The opening bout will be a four-round super bantamweight fight as Alexis Alvarado (1-0, 1 KO), of La Puente, CA, will face Lazaro Vargas (pro debut) of Indio, CA, in a fight that promises to be explosive.
“We’re excited to produce a superb card for the boxing fans,” said promoter Ken Thompson. “We’ve had some great ring action this year, but this card could shine brighter due to the level of action each fighter will bring to the ring.”
“It is great to be back with this installment of 3.2.1 Boxing,” said Alex Camponovo, Thompson Boxing's general manager and creator of 3.2.1 Boxing. “We are working tirelessly to make this an enjoyable night of boxing for the fans watching at home or wherever they are. We expect fireworks and another memorable night of fights.”
Beto Duran will operate as the blow-by-blow commentator with expert commentary by Doug Fischer, while Jessica Rosales will serve as the onsite ringside reporter.
3.2.1 Boxing is sponsored by Thompson Building Materials, transforming spaces in beautiful places; Omega Products International, the leading stucco manufacturer in the United States; Henry / Fortifiber, moisture system control as easy as 1,2,3; and Makita, rule the outdoors.
