Boxing will return to the Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino on January 25th. The event dubbed “Return of the Warrior” is presented by Holmes Boxing and Orthrus Promotions. The main event features Española’s Tony Valdez (7-4-3, 7KOs) against Albuquerque’s Jaime Gutierrez.
Valdez is coming off a final round loss against Felipe Castañeda in a WBC USNBC Super Flyweight title fight at the last Buffalo Thunder event in September. The bout against Gutierrez, appears to be a bounce back fight of sorts as the Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico native has only been victorious once in his last 6 bouts.In the co-main event Santa Fe’s Brandon Holmes (2-0, 2KOs) will be facing Brandon Muñoz (0-0-1) of Albuquerque. Both men made their debuts in 2013. This will mark the second consecutive time that Holmes has co-headlined a card in Santa Fe.
Weigh-ins take place January 24th, at 2pm at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino. Fights take place January 25th, with doors opening at 6pm and the first bout set to take place at 7pm.
