Gomez headlines Fight Night Club card on Thursday

Unbeaten junior welterweight prospect Frankie Gomez headlines the Fight Night Club card on Thursday (April 28) at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, which will be streamed live on RingTV.com and televised live on Fox Sports Net and its regional affiliates.

Gomez, coming off a shutout six-round decision over veteran Jose Alfredo Lugo in January, faces Jason Davis (11-8-1, 3 knockouts) of Vancouver, Wash., in a six-round bout.

The 19-year-old East Los Angeles resident is working with veteran trainer Abel Sanchez in Big Bear, Calif.

Gomez (8-0, 6 knockouts) knocked out his two opponents on previous appearances on Fight Night Club cards, which take place on the last Thursday of every other month.

Also, all-action lightweight Ramon Valadez (7-1, 4 KOs) returns to Club Nokia for the sixth time. The East L.A. product, who has three consecutive knockouts, faces Rafael Lora (11-4, 5 KOs) of the Dominican Republic.

And junior middleweight prospect Alfonso Blanco (4-0, 2 KOs) of Oxnard, Calif., will put his perfect record on the line against Juan Carlos Diaz (7-12, 6 KOs) of L.A. He competed for his native Venezuela in the 2008 Olympics.

HOT 92.3’s Jimmy Reyes and THE RING magazine's Ring Card Girl of the Month Paulina Garces will serve as co-hosts at the downtown L.A. night club, where recording artist Tiffany “Taz” Zavala also will give a live performance.

The live stream on RingTV.com will begin at 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET. Doors open at 6 p.m. PT. The first bell is at 7 p.m. PT.
