EL Muneco and Ghost Town Promotions present "Warriors Conquest", an evening of live professional boxing set for Saturday, June 30th at the Boulder County Fairgrounds.
A welterweight showdown between two sensational young prospects headlines the show as hometown favorite Raul “EL Chino” Carrillo, 9-1-0 (6KO’s) and Josh “Pitbull” Torres, 7-1-1 (4KO’s) of Albuquerque, New Mexico clash.
A winner of his first nine bouts, six by knockout, 28-year-old Carrillo is coming off the biggest fight of his young career, a ten round challenge of Robert Frankel on February 17th in Sheridan, Colorado.
Despite the battle being his first professional bout scheduled past six rounds, Carrillo fought evenly with the much more experienced Frankel. Challenging for the WBC United State Junior Welterweight Title, Carrillo dropped a hard fought decision by scores of 97-93, 98-92 and 99-91.
A staple in the highly New Mexico boxing scene, the 22 year old Torres is riding a two bout winning streak, most recently scoring a second round knockout of Carlos Sanchez on March 31st at the Hard Rock in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
