Earlier tonight from the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Ill., unbeaten welterweight prospect Semajay Thomas improved to 4-0 with 2 knockouts after overwhelming Charon Spain and scoring a first round TKO victory. Thomas is one of the most gifted prospects you will see and he seems to be carrying a newfound maturity about him these days.

Thomas trains under the tutelage of Ronnie Shields in Houston, Tex. yet still finds time to swing through Las Vegas for some top level work. Check out some of our highlights of Thomas over the past few years below.

Later tonight, from the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, Calif., once-beaten junior middleweight prospect Daquan Arnett (11-1, 7 KO’s) will return to the ring when he faces off with well-traveled Angel Hernandez (16-16-1, 13 KO’s).

The melee marks the Florida native’s first match since his January points loss to Eddie Gomez in Brooklyn. Arnett fought a valiant match against the fellow prospect but he was dropped in the seventh round and was simply outhustled in too many of the scheduled ten rounds.

Later tonight, from the Crowne Plaza Hotel in San Diego, Calif., former national amateur champion Aaron “Gavilan” Garcia (14-3-2, 4 KO’s) returns to the ring when he meets up with Tijuana’s Daniel Ramirez (10-1, 4 KO’s) in a featherweight clash.

Garcia is riding a four-fight winning streak, with the most eye-opening victory in that run being a 5th round knockout over fellow prospect Kevin Hoskins last November.

Garcia is coached by rising trainer Vince Parra and will be looking to capture the vacant USA California State title with a victory. If successful, expect a big fight to come his way later this year.
