Diego De La Hoya Takes On Alan Luques In Argentina On Saturday

Diego De La Hoya To Make His Argentinian Debut Against Alan Luques On Saturday

Junior Featherweight prospect Diego De La Hoya (18-0, 9KOs) cousin to Boxing Legend Oscar De La Hoya will be fighting for the first time in Argentina, defending his regional belt against Argentina's Alan Luques (21-6, 9 KOs) in the scheduled 10-round main event on Saturday night in San Luis, Argentina.

The Argentinian has fought his entire career in the United States but will take his game to South America for his next fight.

"I'm excited to be fighting in San Luis, Argentina," De La Hoya said. "The Argentinean fans have been very supportive of my career on social media, and I can't wait to put on a great show for them in person."

De La Hoya (18-0, 9 KOs), 22, of Mexico, won his last Bout back in May 18 with a one sided decision Erik Ruiz in the main event of a Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN card at Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona.

"I know it, and Diego knows it -- every fighter wants to beat a De La Hoya," Oscar De La Hoya said. "It takes hunger and passion for boxing that motivates him to travel across the world to demonstrate he just won't be messed with. Diego will come home with a victory and new Argentinean fans who will be impressed by his Mexican speed and power."

Luques (21-6, 9 KOs), 26, has won two fights in a row and aims to seize the moment against De La Hoya.

"It's a great opportunity for me to fight with such a skyrocketing figure like Diego De La Hoya, and to top it all off, my idol Oscar De La Hoya will be present in the stadium," Luques said. "I will prepare like never before to take advantage of the opportunity before me. I will give all of me."
