Arnold Barboza vs. Danielito Zorrilla tops on July 15 in Temecula, CA

Arnold Barboza of Southern California dreamed of heading to a major event. It looks like his dream is about to come true as he headlines with Danielito Zorilla in the main competition on Friday, July 15 at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temicola, CA.


Barboza and Zorilla are ready for the 10-round junior welterweight showdown at the main event. In addition, Tokyo 2020 US Olympic silver medalists Keyshawn Davis and Richard Torrez will return to the junior card.


Barboza vs Zorrilla


Barboza (26-0, 10 KOs), from South El Monte, California, is a nine-year-old pro taking part in a world title shot after a series of headline-grabbing victories. In April 2019, he knocked out former world champion Mike Alvarado in three rounds, a strong comeback from Los Angeles that strengthened him as a top contender. Barboza has won five matches since then, with unilateral decisions on Ricky Sismondo, William Silva, Tony Luis, Alex Saucedo, and Antonio Moran. He returned after an 11-month vacation, the second-longest of his career. No. 8 by the WBO and No. 11 by the WBC, Barboza hopes to win the long-awaited title against his invincible enemy.


Zorilla (16-0, 12 KOs) is a native of Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, who had more than 100 victories before becoming a pro in November 2016 with a second-round knockout. The 28-year-old, No. 10, has been diced by the WBO at 140 pounds, with 11 knockouts in three rounds or less, through his opposition in the pay lines. It won 2-0 in 2021, beating Ruslan Madiev in March and knocking out former interim world champion Pablo Cesar Cano in two rounds in September. A renaissance man with an associate's degree in banking and a barber at his home barber shop could overtake Zorilla Barboza and take the lead.


The action is not over yet as a major fight will open Torres television broadcasts in the six-round heavyweight special attraction vs. Roberto Zavala Junior.
