Texas boxing history will continue on June 22, 2021 at The Humble Civic Center, when Alfonso “El Tigre” Lopez returns to the ring in the main event, and Arturo “El Diamantito” Marquez boxes in the co-main event. The El Tigre Promotions event, billed Texas Title Night is sure to bring more exciting boxing action as their inaugural Galveston Fight Night did last month in Galveston.
Alfonso “El Tigre” Lopez , 27-3 as a professional, is a proud product of The Cut and Shoot/ Harris Boxing Legacy, and is a multiple time Houston and Texas State Golden Gloves Champion , as well as a National Golden Gloves Silver Medalist as an amateur. As a professional he is a former W.B.C Continental Americas Super Middleweight Champion and current Texas State Super Middleweight Champion. Alfonso has had many impressive performances in the ring but his greatest may have been his spirited effort in batting former World Champion Kelly Pavlik at The MGM Grand Arena in 2011. Alfonso hurt his right hand early in the bout but continued a beautiful boxing display, losing a disputed majority decision.
Alfonso is trained by Head Trainer Henry Harris Jr, Felix Ramirez, and Henry’s sons Trey and John Harris. Henry Harris Jr. is a former four time Golden Glove Champion, who fought Muhammad Ali, then known as Cassius Clay in the 1960 National Golden Gloves Tournament. Henry has trained and worked with many accomplished boxers including former United States Olympian Chuck Walker, James “Bubba” Busceme, Mike Williams, and Sherman Griffin, along with Trey Harris and nephew Monte Lane. Henry is also brother to the famous Roy Harris, who won many Golden Gloves Championships as an amateur and fought Floyd Patterson for The Heavyweight Championship of The World.
Arturo “El Diamantito” Marquez , 65-10 as an amateur and 10-0 with 6 knockouts as a professional, continues The Marquez Boxing Legacy. The son of former United States Olympian and I.B.F. Junior Middleweight Champion Raul “El Diamante” Marquez, Arturo has been busy carving out his own legacy winning ten professional bouts against consistently tougher competition.
“El Diamantito” is trained by his Grandfather Arturo, Father Raul, and Uncle Aldo, who will all be in his corner on June 22nd at Texas Title Night. Boxing is definitely a family tradition in the Marquez family as even “El Diamantito’s” Grandmother Yolanda contributes as an assistant coach at The Marquez Boxing Gym!
Two Texas boxing legacies, who bring generations of experience and Texas boxing history with them into the ring, will be competing in the main event and co-main event on June 22, 2021 at The Humble Convention Center, don’t miss it!
