LONNIE SMITH RETURNS FRIDAY
July 25th, 2011, Las Vegas — Super-featherweight “El Negro Mexicano” “Lightning” Lonnie Smith (13-2-2, ) is back in action Friday, July 29th at the South Point Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas.
Coming off an impressive unanimous decision win over Oxnard’s “Dangerous” David Rodella in April, Smith looks to advance his career by facing California’s Robert Vargas (5-1). This will be “Lightning Lonnie’s” second televised fight in a row.
“The ultimate goal is to be champion,” says Smith. “And I train like one, so that is the next step.”
After appearing on several of their shows, Let’s Get It On Promotions inked a long-term promotional agreement with Smith this year.
“The win over Rodella on television was huge,” says Let’s Get It On Promotions’ Tommy Lane. “It gave fight fans the opportunity to see what we’ve seen all along. The response we received after that fight about Lonnie was incredible.”
Smith vs. Vargas is scheduled for 6 rounds and will be televised on Telefutura’s “Solo Boxeo” series. Check local listings. Tickets are available by calling 702 797 8055.
