San Diego’s Santillan Co-Headlines in Hometown May 18 on ESPN

Unbeaten welterweight Giovani Santillan will have a hometown bout against Brian Norman Jr. in a 12-round bout in a co-feature to Emanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete and Ukraine’s Denys Berinchyk.

Santillan, (32-0, 17 KOs) is the WBO No. 1 contender at 147 pounds and is coming off an upset win over Alexis Rocha in October 2023 in Los Angeles.

“Brian Norman Jr. is a highly skilled young fighter,” Santillan said. “I get so much motivation from my city, and fighting at Pechanga Arena is always special. May 18 will be a great night, and I can’t wait to give my fans another victory.”

ESPN will televise live with heavyweight standout Richard Torrez Jr. and Emiliano Fernando Vargas, son of boxing great Fernando Vargas also set to see action.
