Daniel Garcia has been brief in each of his two appearances at this venue.

Two months after a second-round knockout victory, the 21-year-old Denver native stopped Cancun’s Luis May (22-17-1, 8KOs) early in the first round of their junior lightweight contest. A double left hook to the body put May down on the canvas, at which point the fight was stopped at 1:13 of round one in their DAZN preliminary Thursday evening from Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.

Garcia (6-0, 5KOs) made his first Golden Boy Fight Night on DAZN appearance on April 6, where he needed just more than five minutes to stop Aldimar Silva. Thursday’s victory was already his third of 2023 after having fought just once last year.

Gael Cabrera was brief in his pro debut.

The 18-year-old from Sonora, Mexico twice floored Ulises Rosales (0-7, 0KOs) en route to a first-round knockout in their featherweight contest. Cabrera went to the body to produce both knockdowns, the latter which brought an immediate halt to the contest at 1:29 of round one.

The DAZN opener saw Patricio Manuel earn his second win of 2023 with a four-round shutout versus Alex Gutierrez (0-2, 0KOs). All three judges scored the contest 40-36, though each round was individually competitive. Manuel was forced to overcome a cut outside his left eye from a clash of heads in round four to preserve the victory.

Manuel (3-0, 0KOs) was a five-time female amateur champion before transitioning in 2012. He resurfaced more than six years in an historic pro debut when he outpointed Hugo Aguilar on a December 2018 Golden Boy show at this very location. He ended a four-year ring absence with a four-round technical decision win on the undercard of a March 18 DAZN show from Long Beach, California.

Headlining the show, locally based bantamweight, Manuel ‘Gucci Manny’ Flores (15-0, 11KOs) enters his first main event and scheduled ten-rounder as he faces Phoenix’s Walter Santibanes (11-2, 2KOs).
