Originally from Ukraine but now training in California with the Santa Cruz family, Redkach scored an eighth-round stoppage of Demond Brock in January in Las Vegas before dropping a narrow decision to former champion Argenis Mendez in May. A pro since 2009, the 31-year-old Redkach was unbeaten in his first 18 pro fights before losing to former world champion Dejan Zlaticanin.
Fighting out of Cleveland, Williams was a 2008 U.S. Olympian who is unbeaten since joining the professional ranks in 2013. The 28-year-old stopped Just Savi to begin his 2017 and will look to make the jump to contender when he fights in California for the first time as a pro on October 14.
At last year’s Rio games, the 23-year-old Rodriguez overcame incredible odds to win the first Olympic boxing medal for Mexico since Christian Bejerano in 2000. The Chihuahua native and his teammates had to resort to begging on public buses and streets in Mexico to raise money to compete in international boxing tournaments. He completed his road to the medal stand by defeating Egypt’s Hosam Bakr Abdin to clinch a medal in the middleweight division. Rodriguez mad his pro debut in April with a dominant decision victory over Brian True and followed it up knockout of Jose David Mosquera in July and a TKO against Race Sawyer in September.
An accomplished amateur representing Kaunas, Lithuania, Stanionis is looking to become the next Eastern European fighter to make a splash in the U.S. The 23-year-old had a 141-19 record as an amateur and earned four senior national championships before winning gold at the European Olympic Qualifier to earn his trip to the 2016 Games. A gold medalist at welterweight at the 2015 European Amateur Boxing Championships, Stanionis has impressed with knockouts in his first three starts since turning pro in April, including a first round destruction of Oscar Valenzuela in September.
Part of the fighting Santa Cruz family, the 21-year-old Santa Cruz put together a four-bout winning streak heading into this year before losing a close fight to Jonathan Arturo Torres in May. A pro since 2015, Santa Cruz fights out of San Gabriel, California and will make his StubHub Center debut when he faces Mexico’s Monrrreal.

For Immediate Release
Christopher Rosales (R), the cousin of pound-for-pound king Roman “Chocolito” Gonzalez, will be in action once again this Saturday in Nicaragua
MANAGUA, Nicaragua (December 2, 2015) — Prolific Nicaraguan promoter Marcelo SanchezPinolero Boxing offers up another superb fight card this Saturday, Dec. 5, following on the heels of its 100th boxing promotion show.
Highlighting the fight card is a rubber match between 21-year-old Nicaraguan prospect Junior Ramirez (13-1, 9 KOs) versus David Bency.  Ramirez is the World Boxing Youth Silver Super Lightweight Champion who was undefeated and scheduled to defend his title last month in Monte Carlo. However, he was upset by a fighter he had previously beaten, Bency, in their rematch.
Also fighting on the card is No. 1 ranked Nicaraguan bantamweight Dixon Flores (11-3-2), who recently accepted the challenge to fight sensational Mexican champion Carlos Cuadras (32-0-1), and he now hopes to rebound and continue moving forward.  His opponent will be undefeated 20-year-old Jose Perez (16-0, 13 KOs), the No. 1 rated super flyweight in Nicaragua, in what promises to be an explosive fight.
Also fighting on the eight-bout card is superstar Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez‘ cousin, fellow NicaraguanChristopher Rosales (15-2, 11 KOs).  The 21-year-old Gonzalez faces Martin Diaz (8-3-1) as he rises in the rankings after losing a hotly contested, close decision to undefeated Khalid Yafai (17-0, 11 KOs) in the United Kingdom.  Rosales is currently ranked No. 10 in the world, No. 1 in Nicaragua.
“Marcelo (Pinolero Boxing) continues to offer a steady flow of intriguing fight cards like this Saturday’s, as does his Central American Panamanian neighbor, Rogelio Espino, of Promociones y Eventos del Istmo,” Pinolero Boxing spokesperson Michael Schmidt commented. “It is apparent that young championship-caliber fighters such as Ramirez, Flores, and Rosales are more than prepared to step up and accept challenges.  They’re all in their early twenties with each having had 14 or more battle-hardened fights.  They continue to move up in the rankings while gaining the necessary experience to add to Nicaraguan’s storied history of championship fighters.”
“We thank all of our associates who work with us to help us promote these types of intriguing fight cards,” Sanchez added.  “This Saturday will be another exciting night of boxing.”
