Michael Dutchover Battles Ruben Tamayo Friday Night

By Anthony “Stacks” Saldaña


Friday night at the Double Tree Hotel in Ontario, California the West Texas Warrior and undefeated prospect Michael Dutchover (11-0, 8 KO’s) will headline Thompson Boxing Promotions “Locked N Loaded.” Dutchover the Midland, Texas native who now fights out of Santa Fe Springs, California will look to get one step closer to a regional title and close out 2018 with a bang when he takes on the battle tested Ruben Tamayo (24-11, 18 KO’s) from Obregon, Sonora, Mexico in the last Thompson card of the year. Tamayo who has been in the ring with the likes of Oscar Valdez, Joseph “JoJo” Diaz and Jesus Cuellar to name a few will definitely be a huge step up in competition for Dutchover who has won his last three fights by knockout. Supreme Boxing recently spoke to Dutchover and he stated “I know Tamayo has been in the ring with several top notch fighters, but my trainer Danny Zamora has me ready for this fight and I’m ready to show my fans that I belong in the ring with the best fighters in the world.” Dutchover who is coming off a knockout win over Bergman Aguilar in September has spent quality time sparring with the likes of Manny Robles Jr. and has spent numerous hours working with his strength and conditioning coach Jerry Arias in preparation for his upcoming bout. “I’ve had a great camp and Coach Jerry, Danny (Zamora) and coach Gomez have me ready to go, I’m excited to be headlining another Thompson card and excited to put on another great show for all my fans. This fight will be dedicated to my father and to all the men and women that are in and that have served in the armed forces” stated Dutchover.


In the Co-main event of the night lightweight prospect Pedro Moreno (10-0, 6 KO’s) of Sacramento, California will take on Erick Aguirre (6-9-1, 4 KO’s) of San Diego, California. Moreno who is one of many prospects recently signed by Thompson Boxing will looks to keep his unblemished record alive Friday night. Moreno recently entered the ring in October and came away with a big knockout of Erick Martinez.
