Manuel Mendez Makes Weight, Headlines “Locked n’ Loaded” Friday Night
ORANGE, Calif. (April 13, 2017)

Lightweight Manuel Mendez (14-1-2, 10 KOs) reached weight at 138 lbs. for his “Locked n’ Loaded” 8-round main event showdown versus veteran Luis Arceo (28-15-5, 18 KOs) this Friday from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif. Arceo came in at an identical 138 lbs.

“Everyone knows I don’t back down from a fight,” Mendez said after the weigh in. “I know I’m going to bring it so Arceo should do the same, otherwise it’s going to be a short fight for him.”

Mendez has won three straight by stoppage and ten out of his last twelve. Friday’s fight marks his second start of the year. Mendez is coming off a third round knockout win over Bergman Aguilar in March.
