Palm Springs Boxing Gala Adds New Headliner

Undefeated Rafael “Big Bang” Rivera Brings Big Punch to Boxing Gala.

Tijuana native Rafael Rivera (23-0-2, 15 KO’s) is bringing his undefeated record and huge stopping power to the Palm Springs Boxing Gala on February 11th.

The featherweight, known as “Big Bang” for his aggressive ring style and his penchant for superheroes, will be featured in Liveco Boxing’s main event bout on February 11th at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel.

Due to a Tony Luis illness, the original headlining bout between “Lightning” Luis and Oscar Bravo has been postponed with a possible date for Canada.

Rivera loves comic heroes and wears a Green Lantern costume into the ring before his fights. The superhero fan defeated Wilfredo Vasquez, Jr. in a thriller in Florida and has continued decimating opponents since. He will face hard-charging Mexican powerhouse Giovanni “El Ruso” Caro in an 8-round “All Mexican Brawl”.
