Sacramento Bee - November 28, 2003


In a move that could benefit Sacramento's boxing future, longtime promoter Don Chargin has been given a five-year contract extension as an adviser and matchmaker for Oscar De La Hoya's expanding Golden Boy Promotions.

Chargin, who is putting on tonight's card at the Radisson Hotel featuring undefeated Sacramento middleweight Eric Regan, began assisting De La Hoya last year. A six-time world champion, De La Hoya has talked of becoming the sport's next major promoter, rivaling Don King and Bob Arum.

Golden Boy Promotions, which already has produced 42 cards this year, including several HBO Latino, ESPN and Univision telecasts, intends to add sites in California. San Jose, Bakersfield, Los Angeles, San Diego and Fresno have been used as venues, and Sacramento is being explored as a location for shows next year.

"The talks in Sacramento are still in the preliminary stages," Chargin said, "but with Oscar's stature and connections in boxing, his company has been able to sign up a lot of Latino fighters, contenders and world champions. And he wants to expand both his stable of fighters and shows throughout the country, including several California cities."

Fighters who have agreed to fight under the Golden Boy banner include No. 1 World Boxing Council lightweight contender Juan Lazcano of Sacramento, WBC super-bantamweight champion Oscar Larios of Mexico and new International Boxing Federation lightweight champion Javier Jauregui of Mexico, who along with Larios have fought previously in Sacramento.

Regan (22-0, 15 knockouts) will be defending his International Boxing Association Continental title against Pedro Ortega (29-12-1, 18 KOs) of Mexico in the 12-round main event. Five undercard bouts, beginning at 6 p.m., are planned.

Other Sacramento fighters on the card are featherweight Valanna McGee (3-2), welterweight Anthony Charnell (2-1-1) and lightweight Tony Armenta (0-1).

I dont think he's retiring. I know there will be a rematch between him and Mosley in the near future.

I didn't actually see the fight but i read the reports and by all accounts it seems a bit of a dodgy decision,they should fight again for sure.
