Loreto Garza and Vinny Pazienza, two junior-welterweights who aspire to fight super-lightweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez, will meet in a small-scale pay-per-view boxing show at Arco Arena tonight. Garza and Pazienza figure to attract about 8,000 tonight, which would figure as California's--and Sacramento's--second-largest boxing gate this year. On Sept. 22, Garza stablemate Tony Lopez drew a state-record gate of $601,000 and a crowd of 15,000-plus when he beat Jorge Paez at Arco Arena.

Loreto Garza and Vinny Pazienza, two junior-welterweights who aspire to fight super-lightweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez, will meet in a small-scale pay-per-view boxing show at Arco Arena tonight. Actually, Pazienza, should he beat Garza, might even settle for a fight with Ray Mancini in Atlantic City, N.J., for North America's "Italian-American championship." There's no such title, but in boxing all you need to do to create one is print up the posters.
