In a match-up sure to make hardcore fight fans jump out of their chairs, Golden Boy Promotions today announced that former WBC Continental Americas and NABF Welterweight Champion Jesus “Renuente” Soto-Karass (28-10-3, 18 KO) will face Japan’s mighty warrior and former OPBF Welterweight Champion Yoshihiro “Maestrito” Kamegai (26-3-1, 23 KO) on April 15 in a 10-round super welterweight showdown.

Both fighters have battled in fight of the year candidates and are known for always going for the knockout, making their styles a perfect fit for the high-intensity action that always occurs at LA FIGHT CLUB.

“Every month, LA FIGHT CLUB features the best up-and-coming prospects on the planet, but on April 15, fans will be treated to something different — two veterans who leave everything in the ring every time they fight,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “Though the fighters may be at different points in their careers than the prospects we usually feature, they always deliver high-action bouts with potential knockouts in every round – that’s what LA FIGHT CLUB is all about.”

LA FIGHT CLUB, Golden Boy Promotion’s popular series that brought boxing back to downtown Los Angeles, has been a hit since it’s debut in March 2015, often selling out the Belasco Theater. The series stages action-packed fights in an intimate venue, giving fans an unforgettable evening and leading them to return month after month.

Representing Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, Jesus “Renuente” Soto-Karass is a brawler in the ring and is probably one of boxing’s most underrated fighters. Coming from a boxing family, he turned professional at the age of 18, and his career has spanned to encompass more than 15 years of experience, with an impressive record fighting notable fighters including but not limited to top talents like Alfonso Gomez, Mike Jones, “King” Gabriel Rosado, Marcos “El Chino” Maidana Andre Berto, Keith “One Time” Thurman, Devon “The Great” Alexander, and former world champion Vince Phillips, and winning many welterweight titles, including the WBC Continental Americas and NABF welterweight titles. He is looking to come with a vengeance inside the ring to remind the boxing world of his potential on April 15.

Born in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan, Yoshihiro “El Maestrito” Kamegai began his professional career nearly 10 years ago and quickly became known as a fast and sly slugger, scoring knockout after knockout. He built a stellar reputation in Asia for years, winning regional titles at 140 and 147 pounds. He made his U.S. boxing debut in 2011, securing a victory over Hector “The Hurrican” Munoz at the MGM Grand, but it was a fight he lost to Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero in June of 2014 that made him a star on the international scene. His last notable fight was at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in which he won via technical knockout over Oscar “El Tigre” Goody that same year. “El Maestrito” is a force to be reckoned with, and brings his experience to the Belasco Theater’s ring.

Jesus Soto Karass vs. Yoshihiro Kamegai is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Cerveza Tecate, BORN BOLD and Carmelita Chorizo. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and the first bout begins at 5:30 p.m. The Estrella TV Boxeo Estelar broadcast will air live on Friday, April 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT and will stream live simultaneously on estrellaTV.com and on YouTube via Fenomeno Studios: youtube.com/FenomenoStudios.
