Promising Welterweight Angel Ruiz Makes Headlining Debut This Friday

Published

on

ORANGE, Calif. (June 10, 2019) – Unbeaten welterweight prospect Angel Ruiz (13-0, 10 KOs), who has won his last four contests by knockout, makes his headlining debut this Friday on “Path to Glory” against veteran Miguel Zamudio (43-12-1, 27 KOs). 
The 8-round main event originates from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif. 
For the first time in his career, Ruiz, 21, faces a quality veteran that may pose problems for the young southpaw.
“You never know what to expect when you get matched with someone that has a lot more experience than you,” said Ruiz, who was born in Mexico, but now lives in Los Angeles. “The good news for me is that I sparred with a lot of quality guys for this fight. Zamudio is a tough guy, but I know I’m better.”

Despite his mileage, Zamudio is still only 28-years-old and fought Javier Fortuna for a featherweight title when he was just 22. Ruiz, who has a fan friendly style, plans to pressure him early to avoid getting sucked into any traps.

“I’ll probably start working off my jab so I can get a sense of his movement,” said Ruiz, who will be making his third straight appearance on a Thompson Boxing show on Friday. “The goal is to create space for the left hand. I know the fans would like to see a knockout so I’m going to try to give them one.”
Tickets for “Path to Glory” are priced at $40, $60, & $100 and are available for purchase at ThompsonBoxing.com, or by calling 714-935-0900.

In the co-feature, junior middleweight Richard Brewart (5-0, 2 KOs) of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. faces fellow prospect Antonio Duarte (2-0) of Mexico (6-rounds).
Brewart, 20, turned professional last year and will be making his third appearance for 2019. Despite his young age, the 20-year-old displays an advanced skill set usually seen in prospects that are farther along.

“I’m just a gym rat,” said Brewart, who is trained by Henry Ramirez. “I’m always in the gym working out and trying to get better. It’s great to see the results that come from hard work.”

UNDERCARD
Hard-charging bantamweight Mario Hernandez (8-1-1, 3 KOs) of Santa Ana, Calif. faces Mexico’s Nester Ramos (7-9-1, 3 KOs) in a fight scheduled for 6-rounds.
Heavyweight Oscar Torrez (5-0, 2 KOs) of Riverside, Calif., who is coming off a knockout win in April, battles Siala Siligila (2-2, 2 KOs) of Ontario, Calif. in a bout set for 4-rounds.

Junior lightweight Jose Correa (7-3, 4 KOs) of Santa Ana faces Alex Solorio (4-5, 1 KO)of Mexico in a 6-round bout.

San Bernardino County joins Topgolf to open Ontario location

Published

on

There’s now one more reason why San Bernardino County is Southern California’s premier recreation and business destination.

International entertainment phenomenon Topgolf opened its first Southern California location in Ontario this morning in a deal with San Bernardino County that will create approximately 400 private-sector jobs, $625,000 in annual revenue to County Regional Parks, and an additional recreational opportunity for families and businesses throughout the county and the region.

“Topgolf will be an outstanding entertainment asset that will attract people from all over Southern California to San Bernardino County,” Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman said this morning as Topgolf Ontario opened its doors to the public.

Hagman, whose Fourth District includes the Topgolf site adjacent to Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park in Ontario, developed the idea to use 13.7 acres of County-owned land at the southeast corner of Fourth Street and Archibald Avenue as a golf attraction more than five years ago. That led the County’s Real Estate Services Department to make contact with Topgolf.

“We are honored to be joining the San Bernardino County community as we open the doors to our newest venue to entertain the Inland Empire,” said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Artie Starrs. “We are very excited to welcome the community to a fun, energetic experience one can only get at Topgolf.”

What started as a simple idea to enhance the game of golf has evolved into a best-in-class hospitality entertainment venue centered on a game that is accessible and appealing to all, regardless of skill or ability. The Topgolf technology-driven experience is centered on guests hitting patented, microchipped golf balls into targets on a field.

The open-air, three-level venue features 102 climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays, chef-inspired signature menu items, top-shelf drinks, music, and year-round programming for all ages. The venue is equipped with an outdoor patio, rooftop terrace and private event space.

Topgolf has 75 venues in 31 U.S. states and international locations in Dubai, the United Kingdom, Australia and Germany.

“The Topgolf concept appeals to all ages, and everyone will benefit from the revenue that will be directed toward the betterment of the county’s Regional Parks system,” Hagman said.

Over the course of the initial 20-year ground lease between the County and Topgolf, the County will receive more than $625,000 in annual revenue, benefiting the San Bernardino County Regional Parks system, https://parks.sbcounty.gov/, which includes nine regional parks throughout the county and several other recreational attractions.
