“Bombs Away 5” Weights From St. Petersburg, FL!
“Turf Wars” return to St. Petersburg, FL Promoter Joey Orduna of Mad Integrity Fight Sports presents “Bombs Away 5: Turf Wars” at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel located at 333 1st Street South St. Petersburg, FL 33701 on Saturday, April 2nd.
Headlining the card is an eight round Sunshine State showdown between popular welterweight Ali Tareh (13-11-5, 5 KOs) of Tampa and Juan Aguirre of Jacksonville. Tareh – the owner of Fight Fitness Center in nearby Pinellas Park – has won four of his last six bouts but is coming off a decision loss to Javier Garcia last July. Aguirre – originally from Guatemala – is a veteran of 23 fights who has a reputation for fearlessness and durability. In his most recent fight, Aguirre extended unbeaten prospect Armando Alvarez the distance while making him work from bell to bell.
In the co-feature, talented featherweight Jose “Lil Pacquiao” Resendez (4-0, 2 KOs) of Brandon, FL, returns to the ring against crafty Raul Chirino (7-1, 3 KOs) from the Dominican Republic, in a six-rounder.
Armando “The Gentleman” Alvarez (8-0, 4 KOs), from Miami, will battle Lee “Holliwood” Dawson of Tampa, in a six round welterweight contest. Alvarez is a talented boxer-puncher with a loyal fan base that follows him wherever he fights while Dawson will look to make it five straight without a defeat.
In four round bouts, St. Petersburg based Ukrainian Victor Kulakovski (4-2) meets fellow Paulie Simpson (2-1) of Tampa in the junior middleweight division; Tampa’s Rafael Rivera (1-1) squares off against Michael Guillen (1-0) of New Port Richey, FL, super welterweight Arnold “Raynard” Hill (5-10),
