Williams-Cole Bout Will Highlight Card

Local fighter Tim Williams will meet Israel Cole in a 10-round middleweight bout to highlight tonight's fight card at the El Cortez Hotel.

After winning his first 10 professional fights, Williams (11-2) has dropped two of three bouts. He will meet South Africa native Cole (5-2-1), who has a professional win over highly regarded Herman Cavasuela and an amateur victory over Olympic silver medalist Virgil Hill.

The 10-round bout between Tony (Bazooka) DeLuca of San Diego and Baja California flyweight champion Martin Cardenas has been rescheduled for next month because of an illness to DeLuca.

In middleweight bouts, Larry Muskgrove of Los Angeles and Juan Neri of San Diego will meet in a six-rounder, and Willie Wilson of San Diego and Jeff Medley of Los Angeles will meet in a four-rounder.

In a four-round lightweight bout, Gabriel Ortiz of San Diego will meet David Nicks of Los Angeles, and Mike Zena of San Diego will face Jose Hernandez of Escondido in a four-round featherweight bout.
