World-ranked junior-middleweight Glen Tapia will try to keep his unbeaten streak intact tonight at Bally's Atlantic City.
Tapia (19-0, 11 KOs), a Passaic native, is ranked 10th by the WBO and 14th by the IBF. He will face veteran Elco Garcia (27-8, 15 KOs), of Ignacio, Colo., in a 10-round main event of a card promoted by Las Vegas-based Top Rank.
Tapia, 23, is coming off an eighth-round TKO over then-unbeaten Abraham Han in Las Vegas on July 12. Garcia, 42, has won two straight, including an upset victory over Antonio Mesquita (35-3, 27 KOs) last year.
Millville junior-middleweight Thomas LaManna (12-0, 7 KOs) is also in action tonight. The 21-year-old is taking on Joshua Robertson (5-2, 1 KO), of Lynchburg, Va., in a six-rounder. LaManna earned a second-round TKO over Jeremy Yelton in Charlotte, N.C., in August.
Doors to Bally's main ballroom open at 7 p.m. with the first bout scheduled for 7:30. Tickets, priced at $50 and $75, are available through Ticketmaster and at Bally's box office.
