CORONA, CA (May 26, 2021) – Junior welterweight, Michael Dutchover will return on Sunday, June 6th, as he faces Ivan Leon Benitez in the eight-round main event bout of a Thompson Boxing promoted 3.2.1 Boxing event at The Omega Products International Event Center in Corona, California.
Dutchover (14-1, 10 KOs), of Midland, Texas, who is co-promoted by Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing, is eager to return to the ring as the man known to fans as the “West Texas Warrior”, will look to continue his ascent up the rankings.
“I am happy to be back in the ring, making my 2021 debut. I have been training all year, but a couple dates fell out and finally looking to showcase my skills. I have not seen much of Benitez, but I know, he is game, and he is looking to take my spot,. He has nothing to lose, so I will have to take it to him. It’s all part of the game..”
Dutchover’s opponent, Benitez (14-4-1, 6 KOs), of Cancun, Mexico, is looking to spoil the show.
“People are largely discounting me in this fight,” said Benitez. “I have wins over two undefeated opponents, and I am coming off a draw against Francisco Corrales. I felt that I won that fight in December. I have never felt this good in my career, and I am ready upset the house fighter.”
