Garcia vs Brunson highlight South Philly card; Farmer back in action in stay busy bout


Richard Quiñones (Journeymen Boxing) – Vineland’s Ismael Garcia will put his undefeated record on the line when he tangles against Tyron Brunson in a slated eight-round middleweight affair Friday October 14th at the 2300 Arena in South Philly.

The 29-year-old Garcia (10-0, 4KO’s) has reeled off 10 straight wins to start his career, but has had stretches of inactivity over the last several years. He turned pro in 2010 and after three bouts took two years off and came back in 2012.

Brunson, a rugged veteran, (23-6-1, 22ko’s) posses solid knockout power but he has dropped six of his last eight contests. He did score an early KO win over Carlos Garcia back in August.

Rising super featherweight Tevin Farmer is also slated on the card as well.

Famer (22-4-1, 5KO’s) has ripped off 15 straight wins since suffering a TKO loss to Jose Pedraza back on 2012, will take on Orlando Rizo (19-7, 11KO’s), who has dropped five of 10 overall.

His last time out he dominated Ivan Redkach in July, mixing in his jab and keeping his distance throughout the contest.

Mike Reed (19-0, 11KO’s) will take on Aaron Herrera (29-5-1, 18KO’s), who has dropped two straight, in a an eight-round welterweight contest, while Victor Vasquez and Osnel Charles will meet for a fourth time in a scheduled six-round lightweight contest.

Vasquez (19-11, 9KO’s) has dropped two straight and four of seven overall, but he is a rugged veteran and is always a crowd favorite whether he gets knocked out early or not.

As for Charles (10-15-1, 1KO),  who has dropped 12 of his last 13, this will be the first time in a long time he has had a full training camp. The Atlantic City product routinely takes fights on short notice and will go up and down in weight to get bouts.

In other action undefeated Steven Ortiz (4-0) takes on Daniel Tran (4-5-1, 1KO), who has dropped five straight, in a six-round lightweight bout, while lightweights Gerald Smith (3-2) meets Antony Burgin (9-2) over six rounds.

Hasan Young and Fred Jenkins Jr. are also penciled on the card. Young (5-1-1) took time away from boxing in 2014 at time citing religious beliefs over the sport. This will be his first fight in almost two years.
