Oscar “El Jaguar” Negrete Returns in Main Event July 6th


LOS ANGELES (June 1, 2018): NABF Bantamweight Champion Oscar “El Jaguar”
Negrete (17-1, 7 KOs) will return in an eight-round bantamweight fight
against Dhiul Olguin (13-9-3, 9 KOs) in the main event of the July 6
edition of LA FIGHT CLUB at the Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles,
Calif. and televised live on EstrellaTV’s Boxeo Estelar.

Negrete, of Tierraalta, Colombia, built an impressive resume by defeating
tough opponents in both the bantamweight and super bantamweight divisions.
In his most important victory to date, the 31-year-old defeated Sergio
Frias for the NABF Bantamweight Title in the main event Golden Boy Boxing
on ESPN in June 2017. Negrete then suffered the first loss of his career in
a valiant effort against WBC Super Bantamweight Champion Rey Vargas in Dec.
of that year. Negrete will look to fight for a world title in the near
future if victorious against Olguin.

“I’m very happy because I will finally make my return,” said Oscar Negrete.
“I’m coming back after fighting for a world title, though that loss was at
122. Now, my goal is to fight for a world title in the division I really
belong in, which is 118 pounds. Olguin has a very misleading record, one
that his opponents should never be too confident of. I like this fight
because he is a fighter who will make high demands of me and will give me a
good idea of where I am.”

Olguin is known to fans as a defeater of prospects and contenders. Besides
giving tough fights to Manuel “Tino” Avila and Emilio Sanchez, Olguin has
scored impressive victories against Kevin “K-Smooth” Rivers, Jr. and
Horacio “Violento” Garcia. Olguin looks to prevent Negrete from becoming
world champion with a win on July 6.

“I appreciate yet another opportunity that Golden Boy Promotions has
offered me,” said Diuhl Olguin. “And once again I will not fail to take
advantage of it like I did against Garcia and Rivers. Negrete is a great
boxer and I think our styles will mesh well in a way that will give a great
fight to the knowledgeable boxing fans of Los Angeles.”

Seniesa “Super Bad” Estrada (13-0, 3 KOs) will return in the eight-round
light flyweight against. The native of East Los Angeles, Calif. will
deliver her second LA FIGHT club performance of the year after headlining
the event in April. Estrada is coming off a technical knockout victory
Amarilis Adorno and plans to fight for a world title in the near future.

Former Olympian Raul “Cougar” Curiel (3-0, 2 KOs) will participate in the
first televised fight in a six-round welterweight clash. Super lightweight
prospect Blair Cobbs (7-0-1, 5 KOS) will participate in a four-round
welterweight battle. Opponents for both will be announced shortly.

Negrete vs. Olguin is an eight-round bantamweight fight presented by Golden
Boy Promotions. The event is sponsored by Tecate “THE OFFICIAL BEER OF
BOXING” and Casa Mexico Tequila. The fights take place Friday, July 6,
2018, at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, Calif. The Boxeo Estelar
