The semi-main event will be a 10-round lightweight fight between Arnulfo "Chico" Castillo (34-1-3, 20 KO's) of Chihuahua, Mexico, and Jesus Zatarain (21-5-4, 14 KOs) of Mazatlan, Mexico.

Also fighting on the card will be heavyweight Javier Mora (11-0-1, 10 KOs) of Westminster and Joey Torres, 41, who will be making his professional debut after spending more than 22 years in prison on a murder charge.

The card begins at 7, with coverage on Channel 9 starting at 8. It is the first of four shows scheduled this year. Tickets begin at $15 and can be purchased at the Pond box office or by calling (714) 740-2000.
