School of Hard Knocks Promotions Boxing event on September 10th at the Lea County Event Center, in Hobbs, New Mexico, is the first of 3 Boxing events happening in New Mexico this month.
The main event will be a local affair with Edgar Zubia and Oscar Espinoza both of Hobbs, facing off. Zubia just 14 months ago survived being flung out of his truck, breaking a leg, both arms, shattering his hip, and incurring large mounts off road rash. Just returning to a normal life is an amazing accomplishment. Inside the ring Zubia will be looking to end a 2 fight skid. In December , Espinoza won his pro debut with a TKO of Kelly Westby.
The card will also see 5 fighters making their pro debuts, including Isidro Castillo in the co-main event, who’ll be facing Oscar Delaparra, who hasn’t fought in 45 months. Another one of those debut-er’s will be 15 fight MMA vet Richard Villa.
Undefeated, with 6 wins and 6 knockouts, Matthew “The Diamond Boy” Griego will face his most experienced foe, in the form of 12 fight vet Rafael Rivera, who’s on a 2 fight skid.
