Former world champion Mike Weaver will fight in the main event of next month's boxing card at the Warner Center Marriott, promoters said Tuesday. Weaver, who has a record of 39-16-1 with 28 knockouts, will meet Van Nuys-based veteran George O'Mara in a heavyweight bout scheduled for 12 rounds June 21. In the alphabet soup of professional boxing, Weaver is, even at age 43, still a champion. He holds the title of the National Boxing Assn. But his glory years are behind him.

Professional boxing returned to the Ventura Theatre on July 12 and the presence of Mike Weaver led to speculation that the former World Boxing Assn. heavyweight champion might be featured on a future card. Weaver, 38, now residing in Diamond Bar, was on hand first and foremost to watch his 25-year-old brother Lloyd box in a middleweight bout. But he did express interest in returning in the near future. "I'll be happy to fight here or anywhere, it makes no difference to me," Weaver said.

Mike Weaver is the biggest name, but the former heavyweight champion might not be the most-intriguing boxer on the June 21 fight card at the Warner Center Marriott. Diobelis Hurtado, the 1994 world amateur champion at 132 pounds, is scheduled to make his sixth professional appearance--and his first outside of Miami. Hurtado, 22, defected from the Cuban national team after a competition last October in Connecticut.
