Making his professional debut in 2011, Pedro Campa of Guymas, Mexico, has been unstoppable, accumulating eighteen wins with fourteen knockouts. The undefeated Campa has recently defeated Noe Nunez and Dario Garibay in 2015 and finished out 2014 with impressive wins over Oscar Avilez and Ramon Villaneuva. Next month, Campa has his focus on LA FIGHT CLUB as he defends his undefeated status against Miguel Huerta Angel and shows American audiences that he is a force to watch.
Thirty-seven year old Miguel Angel Huerta of Los Angeles boasts an impressive career, claiming the vacant NBA Light Welterweight title against Allan Vester in Fort Myers, Florida in 2004; the WBO Inter-Continental lightweight title against Marco Angel Perez in Corona, Calif. in 2004; and the vacant NABF lightweight title against Efren Hinojosa in Houston, Texas in 2007. After recent tough losses to Mauricio Herrera, Antonio Orozco and Haskell Rhodes in 2014, Huerta will look to claim victory in his first fight of 2015 against Pedro Campa.
Rising prospect Joet Gonzalez of Glendora, Calif. has been steadily climbing the professional ranks since his debut in 2012. Most recently, Gonzalez has impressed fans with wins defeating Ali Gonzalez at the April edition of LA FIGHT CLUB, as well as Jose Angel Beranza in May and Miguel Tamayo in August at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. Gonzalez will return eager to add to his undefeated record at his second appearance at LA FIGHT CLUB.
Hailing from San Antonio, Hector “El Finito” Tanajara has been fighting since 2007 and during that time has won eight national championships. In 2012, he qualified to attend the Veles Cup in Kurgan, Russia and took the gold medal in his weight class. This opportunity led the amateur standout to qualify for the 2016 USA Pre-Olympic trail competition. Winning the tournament and having been selected as one of seven to go to the 2016 Olympic trails, Tanajara decided instead to focus on a professional career. Now, the eight-time national champion made his professional debut as a newly signed Golden Boy Promotions fighter at the August 6 edition of LA FIGHT CLUB with a quick follow up victory at the September 18 edition. He will look to continue his winning streak at the Belasco Theater on November 6.

Next month, De La Huerta will look to impress a new crowd as he readies for his first fight in downtown Los Angeles.
Damon Allen of Philadelphia exploded onto the scene claiming victory in five fights of his first year as a professional. He followed up with three impressive wins against Anthony Michael Linenfesler and Hector Marengo in 2014 and Luis Rodriguez in 2015. Allen will fight to keep his undefeated record next month and show fans that he is a rising prospect to watch.
Also hailing from Guaymas, Mexico, Alan Campa made his U.S professional debut in April 2015 at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, NY, where he faced tough opponent Sergiy Derevyanchenko, halting his four bout-winning streak. An experienced fighter boasting thirteen wins in his home country, Campa is hoping to regain his winning streak as he challenges Fabiano Pena in his first appearance at LA FIGHT CLUB.
Fabiano Pena of Los Angeles has accumulated an impressive record of ten wins since his professional debut in Balneario Rincao, Santa Catarina, Brazil in February of 2013, where he went on to claim the vacant Brazilian cruiserweight title against Lourival Luiz Da Silva that same year. He made his U.S. debut in 2014 boasting a win against Dave Valykeo at the Wheeling Island Casino Racetrack in Wheeling, West Virginia, and hit a rocky patch with one win and three loses in 2015.
