The only thing not predictable about Thursday night's victories by boxers Chris Arreola and Paul Williams was how fast they happened. Each won easily in bouts, in a show at Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, that were clearly overwhelming mismatches. Viewers on the Versus network got a total of 8 minutes 48 seconds of actual action. Arreola, promoter Dan Goossen's projected heavyweight star of the future, took out a 38-year-old from New York named Israel Garcia with a TKO 1:11 into the third round.

Auditions for the bright lights of boxing continue for Chris Arreola and Paul Williams, stars of promoter Dan Goossen's camp, as part of a card tonight at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, Calif. Arreola is an unbeaten heavyweight being promoted as the next big thing in a division that has craved stars for several years. Arreola, from Riverside, is 27, but left boxing for two years after 2001 and is scrambling now to fight often and prove his worth as a marquee boxer. His record is 24-0, with 21 knockouts, and this will be his seventh fight since February 2007.

The promoter for Riverside welterweight Josesito Lopez said Monday that the boxer has verbally agreed to replace Andre Berto and fight former world welterweight champion Victor Ortiz of Oxnard on June 23 at Staples Center. Lopez (29-4, 17 knockouts) last fought in September, dropping a questionable split-decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. protege Jessie Vargas on the undercard of Mayweather's knockout victory over Ortiz. Lopez is a tough, smart boxer "who knows how to use the lost art of digging that left hook to the body," according to promoter Dan Goossen.
