LOS ANGELES (October 7, 2016) – All eyes were glued to the ring during tonight’s sold out LA FIGHT CLUB performances at the Belasco Theater as Diego Magdaleno left victorious against Art Hovanissyan via unanimous decision victory. Special guests for the night included Golden Boy Promotions’ Partner and Future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins, Playboy Playmate of the Year Eugena Washington, WBA-NABA super featherweight Champion Carlos “The Solution” Morales, Jason “El Animal” Quigley, Jesus “Renuente” Soto Karass, Ivan “Striker” Delgado, Tenochtitlan “T-Dog” Nava, Rafael “El Aiklin” Gramajo, Emilio Sanchez, Pablo “The Shark” Rubio Jr, Luis Coria, Oscar Duarte, and Roy “Pitbull” Tapia.
Opening the Estrella TV Boxeo Estelar telecast, Maricela “La Diva” Cornejo (4-2, 2 KOs) battled against Eliza Olson (9-6-3, 2 KOs) in a scheduled six round super middleweight fight. As the second female fight ever to take place at the Belasco Theater’s LA FIGHT CLUB, both female fighters brought their A-game as they exchanged hits and blocks in a bout resulting in Cornejo taking home a unanimous decision victory.
“I used my jab, and kept my distance because Olson is known as an unpredictable fighter,” said Maricela Cornejo. “I wasn’t pleased with the outcome-we all want to win via knock out-but I love the fact that I got to demonstrate good footwork and skills that will continue to empower women’s boxing. I’m excited to be a part of LA FIGHT CLUB, and I know that I’ll be back.”
