Herrera to replace Sosa for Fox Sports July 2 card

Kicking off the Fourth of July holiday weekend, LA FIGHT CLUB is sure to provide fireworks the ring at the historic Belasco Theater for the July 2 edition of the fan-favorite fight series in downtown Los Angeles.

Due to illness, previously scheduled main event fighter John Karl Sosa has pulled out of the July 2 bout and in his place Mexico City's Gilberto "El Flaco" Gonzalez (25-3, 20 KOs) will now face Hevinson Herrera (17-10-1 11 KOs) of Barranquilla, Colombia for a 10-round super lightweight bout airing live on FOX Deportes.

Rising star and undefeated fighter Diego De La Hoya (10-0, 6 KOs) of Mexicali, Mexico is set to take on Jose "Hollywood" Estrella (14-6-1, 10 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico for the co-main event, and Oscar "Jaguar" Negrete (10-0, 3 KOs) will fight Ramiro "Zurdo" Robles (12-3-1, 6 KOs) of Guanajuato, Mexico in an eight-round bout to open up the telecast on FOX Deportes. Trying to make airtime and making his second appearance at LA FIGHT CLUB, Melsik Baghdasaryan (1-0, 1 KO) of Glendale, Calif. will take on Abraham Calderon (0-1) of Los Angeles in a four-round welterweight TV swing bout.

As a special treat for fans and ticket holders for the July 2 LA FIGHT CLUB, Abraham "Chamaco" Lopez and Roy "Pitbull" Tapia will be in attendance and meet with fans prior to the televised bouts from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Lopez and Tapia will return to the Belasco Theater as featured fighters for the August 6 edition of LA FIGHT CLUB.
