SERGIO MARTINEZ: This training camp has been tremendously efficient. Everything has exceeded all of my expectations.

The Miami weather and atmosphere has made this his most memorable camp in recent history. I couldn’t be happier with the way things have gone thus far.

I feel great. The time off has allowed my injuries to properly and fully heal and my entire body has never felt better

I know that Cotto is working very hard for this fight with Freddie Roach but there is no doubt in my mind that this will definitely be his farewell fight to what was a great career.

5-15-14 FS1 Orozco-Honorio



DEL MAR, CALIF. (May 7, 2014) – Originally scheduled to square off on April 26, rising star Antonio “Relentless” Orozco and Mexican veteran Martin Honorio will finally get their chance to take care of business in the ring when they meet in the main event of the special edition of “Ringside at Del Mar” on Thursday, May 15 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, Calif. in the Golden Boy Live! FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast.

The previously announced main event fight between Manuel “Tino” Avila and David “Morita” De La Mora will now be featured in the 10-round junior featherweight co-feature and opening the telecast will be the six-round bantamweight bout between Paramount’s Manuel “Suavecito” Roman and Merida’s Jose “Cacho” Silveira.

San Diego’s Antonio “Relentless” Orozco (19-0, 15 KOs) has been making a steady, yet spectacular rise up the junior welterweight ladder, with his power earning him plenty of respect from his peers. Currently on a seven-fight knockout streak, the 26-year-old Mexican standout is coming off of a second-round finish over Miguel Angel Huerta on January 24.

Perhaps the biggest test of Orozco’s career, Mexico City’s Martin “El Brochas” Honorio (32-8-1, 16 KOs) is a former USBA, NABF and NABO Champion who has fought the best in the game for years, with notable victories over former World Champion Steve Luevano, Giovanni Andrade and John Molina and most recently had a great fight against Argentina’s power-puncher Lucas Matthysse. Winner of three of his last five fights, Honorio wants to stop Orozco’s rise by any means necessary.

Also featured on the card will be some of San Diego’s top talent looking to continue building their fan bases in their young careers. Lakeside’s talented middleweight Elias “Latin” Espadas (5-1, 3 KOs) will face Jamal Harris (5-7-4, 3 KOs) of Los Angeles in a four round battle, Vista’s featherweight Roque “Rocky” Ramos (4-0-1, 1 KO) will take on Phoenix’s Misael Chacon (1-2) in a four round junior lightweight bout, Ricky Gutierrez (2-1-1, 1 KO) of San Marcos will square off in a four round lightweight fight against Devonte Donaldson (1-5) of Gardena. Rounding out the card will be San Diego featherweight Prince “Tiger” Smalls (4-0-1) taking on Tijuana’s Victor Serrano (2-3) and in separate four round bouts, Jorge “Tito” Ruiz (6-1, 2 KOs) of Chula Vista and Lancaster junior middleweight Tevin Watts (2-0-1), taking on opponents to be announced shortly.

Tickets priced at $29, $45, $60 and $75 plus applicable taxes and service charges are on sale now at,, at the Del Mar Fair Grounds Box Office, or by calling (858) 792-4252.

Hugo Centeno Jr vs Domonique Dolton Set For “ShoBox” June 6


The acclaimed SHOWTIME Sports series ShoBox: The New Generation returns on Friday, June 6, with what promises to be a thrilling doubleheader featuring the top young talent for which the series is known. Televised live on SHOWTIME from the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif., the 10-round main event will feature undefeated California middleweight Hugo “The Boss” Centeno Jr. against fellow unbeaten Domonique “3D” Dolton of Detroit.

In the ShoBox co-feature, also scheduled for 10-rounds in the junior middleweight division, dynamic New York City phenom Eddie “E Boy” Gomez puts his perfect record on the line when he faces Francisco Santana of Santa Barbara, Calif.

Fighting out of Oxnard, Calif., 23-year-old Hugo “The Boss” Centeno Jr. (20-0, 11 KOs) is just starting to scratch the surface of his enormous potential. Winner of 90 amateur bouts, Centeno Jr. has added 20 professional wins as well, with victories over respected competition such as Ayi Bruce, Allen Conyers, KeAndrae Leatherwood and Angel Osuna, putting him on the short list of fighters expected to win a world title in the coming years.

A former amateur star who nearly secured a spot on the 2008 U.S. Olympic team, Domonique Dolton (14-0, 8 KOs) has been waiting for an opportunity like this for a long time, and he’s not about to let it pass him by.

A winner of the WBC Fecarbox and NABA middleweight titles, Dolton is in stellar form heading into his ShoBox debut on June 6.

Hailing from the Bronx, N.Y., Eddie Gomez (16-0, 10 KOs) has done a lot in a short time thus far as a professional, following up a stellar amateur career with dominant victories over a high level of competition. In his last three bouts, the skilled boxer-puncher has defeated Luis Hernandez, Steve Upsher Chambers and Daquan Arnett, and he hopes to continue this stellar run with another big win on ShoBox.

Currently riding an impressive seven-fight winning streak, Santa Barbara’s Francisco Santana(19-3-1, 9 KOs) is expected to not just be Gomez’ toughest test to date, but a fighter with the potential to upset the unbeaten New Yorker. Owner of 2013 wins against Freddy Hernandez and Joachim Alcine, the 27-year-old will be looking to make it eight-in a row on June 6.

Centeno, Jr. vs. Dolton, a 10-round middleweight fight, is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, and sponsored by Corona. The ShoBox: The New Generation will take place on Friday, June 6 at Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio, Calif., and will be televised live on SHOWTIME beginning at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).
