San Antonio bantamweight Raul Martinez returns to the ring Saturday in Mexico.
Martinez (28-2, 14 KOs) is scheduled to take on Juan Jimenez (9-3, 8 KOs) of Mexico at 118 pounds.
The fight will take place in the historic town of Tulum, about 90 minutes south of Cancun. Tulum is known for its Mayan ruins.
It’s Martinez’s first fight since his loss Oct. 8 in Tijuana to Rodrigo Guerrero for the IBF super flyweight crown.
“Everything’s good to go,” Martinez said. “I’m hoping it’ll be a short night for me.”
Martinez said he’s not sure of the scheduled length of the fight, although he says he and his team that includes trainer “Jesse” James Leija are pushing for 10 rounds.
Jimenez has fought mostly in Mexico and has campaigned mostly as a flyweight.
The bout is part of a card featuring Roberto Ortiz (25-0-1, 21 KOs) of Torreon defending his WBC Silver super lightweight title against Florencio Castellano (16-6, 13 KOs) of Colombia in the main event.
The bout is part of a doubleheader to be televised at 9 p.m. on Fox Deportes.
Pro card Oct. 6: San Antonio junior welterweight James Cantu is scheduled to headline a local club boxing show Oct. 6 at La Villita.
Randy Galindo’s ABG Promotions is the promoter.
Other local fighters under consideration to appear include Steven Hall, Benjamin Whitaker, Orlando Campos and A.J. Cardenas, who would be making his pro debut.
Galindo said another possibility is local MMA fighter Aaron Rosa, who is now campaigning as a boxer.
Tickets are $25 and can be ordered by calling 210-663-5575.
Galindo also is promoting an Aug. 31 amateur MMA show, Alamo Showdown IV, at 7 p.m. at La Villita’s Assembly Hall.
Olympic-sized fallout: The head of the U.S. Olympic committee has vowed to make changes to boxing’s national governing body after the dismal showing by the medal-less men’s team in London.
“We’re going to sit down and take a hard look at why we are where we are, and make some changes,” said Scott Blackmun, CEO of the USOC, who declined to add specifics.
The team lost nine of its last 10 bouts and left the 2012 Summer Games empty-handed, the first time a U.S. Olympic team has failed to earn a medal. Also drawing criticism was the fact the coaching staff was not in place until just about a month before the Games began.
Since David Reid won gold at Atlanta in 1996, only one U.S. male boxer — Andre Ward in 2004 — has claimed an Olympic title.
