Table Mountain Casino hosts championship fight

15 August 2007

RIANT, California -- (PRESS RELEASE)-- After kicking off the "Melee on the Mountain" boxing series in April with an unforgettable 12 round war between Isidro Garcia and Cesar Lopez, Table Mountain Casino in association with Roy Englebrecht Events is pleased to announce the return of the hottest new fight series on Tuesday, September 18th, with an IBA world junior welterweight title fight between current champion Adrian Mora and former world lightweight champion Javier Jauregui in a bout that has fight of the year written all over it.

Mora-Jauregui, a 12 round championship fight that headlines an action-packed night of competitive pro boxing, will take place at the Table Mountain Casino Event Center in Friant, California. The "Melee on the Mountain" series was launched in 2007, and has featured both boxing and mixed martial arts events that have met with a rousing reception from fight fans. The September 18th event is the final boxing card for the year, and will be followed by a mixed martial arts event in November.

Ticket prices start at only $20 and are available at the Table Mountain Casino Main Cage or online at starting at Noon PDT on Monday, August 20th.

Unbeaten Colorado native Adrian Mora (19-0-1, 11 KOs) has come up the hard way in his pro career, but after three straight knockout wins, as well as victories over highly-regarded Steve Quinonez and Marc Thompson over the course of his close to seven years in the fight game, Mora is ready to make his move on the world's elite. In his last bout, he won the vacant IBA junior welterweight crown by blasting the 15-1-1 Thompson out in just 82 seconds, and on September 18th, he's looking to make a statement against Jauregui.

One of boxing's truest warriors, Javier Jauregui (51-14-2, 35 KOs) has been fighting professionally since Adrian Mora was just ten years old and has faced the elite in the game, including Julio Diaz, Joan Guzman, Leavander Johnson, Acelino Freitas, Jose Luis Castillo, and Jesus Chavez. But this 33-year old from Guadalajara still has plenty of fight left in him, and he is ready to begin on the road back to a world title, as evidenced by his 2005 win over highly-touted prospect Randy Suico.

Heading up the four bout undercard will be local hero Gabriel Gil, who will put his 1-0 record on the line against always tough Art Briceno (1-2). Madera's Gil, a college graduate who is now working on his MBA, burst on the pro boxing scene in a big way on the first "Melee on the Mountain" card in April, dropping unbeaten Julio Llamas en route to an exciting four round decision win.

According to John Mayewski, President and CEO of Table Mountain Casino, "We pride ourselves on providing the ultimate entertainment value in the Central Valley and the quality of this IBA Championship duel is solidifying that reputation with Valley fight fans."
