San Antonio, TX- Living up to their reputation as one of the best fight cities in

Texas. San Antonio held a fantastic boxing event this past Saturday August 3 rd .

Supreme Boxing Promotions led by the accomplished Mr. Robert Tapia and Coach

Rick Nunez, showcased “Saturday Night Live” at the Alzafar Shrine Auditorium.


LongLiveBoxing was in attendance to soak it all in with the fans who were

incredibly raucous from the opening bell! The vibe gave off goosebumps and the

210 area showed great support! As always!



In the main event, Selina “Aztec Queen” Barrios needed less than a minute to

dispatch Nina Gallegos. Selina displayed her vaunted power with a body shot

heard throughout the arena, dropping Nina for the count. With the win “Aztec

Queen” improves to (6-1 3KOs).


“It was beautiful to see the fans of San Antonio come out and support our boxing

event,” Selina told Marc Abrams,” I wanted to make a statement with a knockout

performance, and I was blessed to deliver it. The boxing community and fans in

San Antonio are incredible. I’m hoping we can continue to bring more boxing

shows to our great city.”



Her co-manager Kerry Dangle has the utmost faith in Selina. “We believe Selina

Barrios has the ability to be a world Champion and is doing something few other

fighters are doing.” Dangle stated at a recent press conference, “..we have big

plans for her in the future and are excited at what the future holds for her.”



In the co-main event, Henry “World Star” Arredondo improved to 6-0 3KOs, after

scoring a knockout fit for “World Star” footage! Arredondo needed only two

rounds to send Alejandro Moreno back home and looked sensational doing so.

The future is very bright for “World Star”!
