Las Vegas professional boxer Amanda Crespin is scheduled to be back in the ring next weekend.
Crespin fights as part of Chavez Promotions’ “Warehouse Rumble III,” on Friday, March 29, at Albuquerque’s Wool Warehouse.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and first bell will ring at 7.
Crespin (7-4-1, two wins by knockout) will go six rounds with rival featherweight Nohime Dennison (4-2-2). Dennison defeated Crespin in two previous encounters.
The first — a debatable four-round majority decision — was in their joint debut as part of the Holly Holm-Terri Blair card back in August 2009 at the Wilson Complex. The second came via unanimous decision in January 2010 at Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque.
Crespin, 21, has progressed since then and is riding a three-match winning streak. The most recent was a four-round unanimous verdict over Brenda Gonzales Feb. 1 at Albuquerque’s Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Dennison, 33, last fought June 23, 2012, taking Christina Ruiz to a four-round draw in San Antonio, Texas.
In the main event, Josh “Pitbull” Torres (10-2-1, four KOs) squares off against Jose Luis Sanchez (2-0, one KO) in an eight-round welterweight bout.
Another veteran pro boxer with ties to the Meadow City, Michael Coca Gallegos (1-10-1, one KO) will test his one-match win streak against Cristian Cabral (4-0-1, three KOs).
Rounding out the card is a match between light welterweights Matthew Baca (2-0, two KOs) and Yorden Hernandez (2-0, one KO).
Las Vegas’ Arturo Crespin, Amanda’s brother, had been slated to box as well, but that bout — vs. Jose Garcia, who he beat in October — was up in the air as of press time. Arturo (8-2-1, one KO) turns 23 on Saturday.
Tickets ($30 and up) will be available locally from Carlos Crespin, 429-4068, and in Albuquerque (call 261-1502).
According to the New Mexico Boxing.com website, the card will be dedicated to the memory of Florencio Olguin Sr., who boxed in the 1960s, and Arturo Crespin, the late father of Carlos Crespin and grandfather of pro boxer siblings Arturo and Amanda Crespin.
