In the main event Aron Martinez (16-1-1, 3 KOs) faces Joshua Marks (8-3, 8 KOs)in an eight round welterweight collision.

East L.A.’s “Asesino” Martinez, 30, returns to Ontario with his roughhouse style of fighting and eagerness to slug it out. Wins over Pavel Miranda, the always tough Albert Herrera, undefeated Joseph Elegele and back and forth battering with Dashon Johnson excited the fight fans and proved Martinez a fan favorite. Next up is Marks.

Marks, 24, otherwise known as “Superman,” hails from El Centro, California and is purely a knockout puncher. It’s feast or famine for the hard-hitting Marks who relies heavily on putting opponents to sleep. Known for his particularity on his winning methods. “Superman” likes knockouts not decisions. After 11 pro bouts Marks can also brag he has never been a victim of a knockout.

Tickets for “LOCKED N’ LOADED” are priced at $75, $45, and $30. They are available now and may be purchased by calling 714-935-0900.

In the semi-main event Cali, Colombia’s undefeated #10 WBA, #10 IBF, #5 WBO,Jhonatan “Momo” Romero (20-0, 12 KOs) returns to the Doubletree to face Merida, Mexico’s Jose Silveira (12-5-1, 7 KOs) in a junior featherweight match up.

Romero, 25, last fought at the Doubletree nearly a year ago and despite suffering an early knockdown, was able to rally to victory after six rounds of terse action. He followed that up with an impressive victory over Lancaster, California’s big punching Chris Avalos at the Chumash Casino on his US ShoBox televised debut. Romero returns but has dropped down a weight division.

Silveira earned the title of boxer with the most character over Christopher Martin with 52 percent of all votes cast by boxing aficionados via text message and He is now in third place in the “Cinturón Tecate” competition, behind Jessie Vargas and Jayson Velez.

One of the best female fights this year will take place when Riverside’s undefeatedSindy “La Alacrana” Amador (7-0, 1 KOs) faces San Diego’s undefeated Amaris “Diamond Girl” Quintana (6-0-2, 1 KO) in a flyweight bout set for six rounds.

Amador last fought at the Doubletree Hotel this past February and won an exciting battle against Palm Springs boxer Gloria Salas. Amador is a punching machine and doesn’t like to waste a second inside the ring. Winging punches is what she does best and puts the pressure on at 100 percent. She fights out of Riverside’s Capital Punishment Gym.

Quintana, 22, combines speed, boxing skills and a fearless attitude whenever she fights in the ring. Never in a boring fight she has victories over the same opponents as Amador but has two draws against world title challenger Melissa McMorrow. Expect a large crowd from San Diego to arrive when she fights. She’s a big fan favorite and eagerly accepted the fight.
