Filling Friday night's monthly boxing card at the Irvine Marriott was a battle in itself for promoter Roy Englebrecht and matchmaker Jerry Bilderrain. Englebrecht and Bilderrain spent much of their Thanksgiving holiday trying to fill the card, which was left in disarray. Several fighters had pulled out, including Ivan Salazar, who withdrew from the main event after failing to catch a plane from Mexico City in time to get medical clearance.

The managers of Long Beach welterweight Raul Franco say their young fighter isn't ready to sign with a promoter. But if Franco keeps throwing left hooks like the one he threw Friday night at the Marriott in front of 1,189, he may not be able to keep the promoters away. Raul Franco took a low blow and a couple elbows from Santiago Franco before he unloaded a clean left hook to Santiago Franco's chin 2 minutes 6 seconds into the fight in a scheduled six-rounder.

Carlos Navarro knows there's nothing he can do about his past, but occasionally he catches himself looking back on it. Two years ago, Navarro was a cinch to make the U.S. Olympic boxing team and a good bet to become the Oscar De La Hoya of the 1996 Olympics. As an amateur, Navarro won 21 national titles and two world titles, and he was from East Los Angeles, the same area that De La Hoya comes from.
