Thompson Boxing Signs Prospects Aron Martinez & Richard Contreras

Known for building the careers of boxing greats such as Timothy Bradley and Yonnhy Perez, Thompson Boxing Promotions is applauded for their savvy in picking up and coming boxing prospects.

Joining the Thompson Boxing Promotions’ team are Aron Martinez and Richard Contreras.  “As a long time business owner there is always a concern to give the customers the latest and greatest merchandise. It’s important to follow the same model in the sport of boxing.  The fight fans deserve the best new talent and that is exactly what we have done by signing Aron Martinez and Richard Contreras,” said Ken Thompson, founder and president of Thompson Boxing Promotions.  “They are an integral part of our company and the future of the sport of boxing and it thrills us to grow their career.”


The powerful super bantamweight, Richard “El Terminador” Contreras, carries a professional record of (6-0, 5 KOs) and fights out of Riverside, CA. The undefeated rising star began his professional career with only 22 amateur fights under his belt; 20 of which he won by stopping his opponents.

“When my manager and trainer, Joe Esquivel, suggested that I sign with Thompson Boxing Promotions I agreed without hesitation.  I know that I am very young and new to this game but I have good instincts and I am very happy to sign with Thompson Boxing Promotions. I’m a relentless and rugged fighter that doesn’t run and I am going to make them proud,” added Contreras.

Contreras is scheduled to take on Texan Olvin Mejia (4-4-3, 4 KOs) in a 6 round battle on the Thompson Boxing’s “Locked N’ Loaded” card scheduled to take place in just 2 weeks, on Friday, September 23, at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA.

Tickets for “LOCKED N’ LOADED” are priced at $75, $45, and $30. They are available now and may be purchased by calling 714-935-0900.


East Los Angeles’, 29-year old welterweight prospect, Aron Martinez is well known for his hard hitting orthodox style.  Martinez pays homage for his steadily climbing career to his tough upbringing. “I haven’t had an easy upbringing and I wanted to change my direction in life so I put everything I have into my training. As a result I have been able to build my professional boxing career.  I have fought on past Thompson Boxing Promotions’ cards and I feel that signing with them will give me the opportunity to grow at a momentous pace.  They know my boxing style and what I am capable of and it feels good to know that they believe in me. I will work hard to pave the way to a championship title.”

Martinez is coming off an impressive victory over perviously unbeaten prospect Joseph Elegele on a televised ESPN “Friday Night Fights” bout last July. With a current professional record of (15-1, 3 KO’s) the durable Martinez aims to improve his record fight-by-fight beginning with his next battle slated to take place on October 14 at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California, against an opponent to be named.
