STORY IDEAS

 

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is located in between the beautiful Santa Rosa and Chocolate mountain ranges in the Palm Springs Valley. The area boasts wonderful stories of celebrities, pioneers and now, entrepreneurs. Many people ask what there is to do around Palm Springs. One quickly discovers it's difficult to do everything in the area in just a few days. Whether visitors come to Fantasy Springs for gaming, golf or to enjoy the surrounding area, it offers something for everyone.
Ideas you may want to consider if your assignment brings you to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and the Palm Springs, CA area.

  • "Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is a short drive from Palm Springs. What is there to do if someone is staying there?” Besides gaming, playing golf, dining, taking in A-list entertainment, guests can get an in-room or cabana massage, visit the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, go for an ATV tour through the desert, visit the nearby famed Joshua Tree National Park, go shopping at the Rodeo Drive of Palm Springs – El Paseo and much more. 
  • “Palm Springs has often been known as the playground of Hollywood celebrities. Do Hollywood-types frequent your resort?” Do they ever! Celebrities can be spotted often at Fantasy Springs and at Eagle Falls Golf Course. The resort hosts several high profile and charity tournaments throughout the year that feature celebrity golfers. The hotel and restaurants have also been frequented by Playboy Playmates, musicians and more.
  • “Plan a Nearby Southern California Getaway.” The price of gas still fluctuates and with the economy still uncertain, many people are looking for a less-expensive alternative to a far-away destination resort. Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has it all in terms of the ultimate destination resort. Palm Springs, CA boasts an average 354 days of sunshine and Fantasy Springs features an inviting oversized pool and sundeck surrounded by palm trees. Guests can have drinks and lunch served to them as they bask in the warm desert rays. Room rates are affordable at Fantasy Springs and visitors get to skip the long drive to Las Vegas and the gas money it takes to get there.   
  • Award-winning chefs at Fantasy Springs. Several of the best chefs in the Palm Springs area can be found in the kitchens at Fantasy Springs. Executive Chef, Freddy Rieger, loves to share his east coast charm, and his recipe secrets. You just have to ask him nicely. 
  • “Who Are the Winners?” Fantasy Springs features 2,000 slots, 40 table games, the Bingo Palace and the Triple Crown Room. Big winners are made every day in the casino. Find out what players use as good luck charms. Slots and table games are also using cutting edge technology, many times without the player even noticing. Take a look at what the tech and data does.
  • “Someone in my group doesn’t gamble.” Many people would rather receive entertainment in a form other than gaming. For those not attracted by the whirr of the slots or excitement of the tables, they can take in a concert, listen to live music, “yuk it up” at the Fantasy Springs Improv Comedy Club, play golf, get a massage, enjoy a gourmet meal, relax by the pool, do some wine tasting at the 12th Floor Wine Bar & Cocktail Lounge, take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway up 8,500 feet to the top of Mt. San Jacinto, go for a hike, or just watch and in-room movie.

September 24, 2014INDIO, CA – Joan Sebastian, a popular four time Grammy® Award and seven time Latin Grammy Award winning Mexican singer and songwriter will perform at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Friday, November 21st. He has composed hundreds of pop songs and has been a regular staple on the top-40 charts in Mexico since his career began in 1977.

 Sebastian has been recognized by critics and colleagues for his contribution to the Mexican culture, getting his lyrics performed by prominent Latin artists. His music is a mixture of Latin pop, ranchera and grupera music. His success is not only found in music but also in his short acting career when he became the main protagonist of a Mexican soap opera. 

 After leaving a local seminary at the age of 17, the young man started to get involved in popular music, dedicating his first composition, called "Juliantla," to his native town.  In 1977, José Manuel Figueroa decided to call himself Joan Sebastian, paying tribute to San Sebastian, where he used to work.

 Sebastian’s first disc "El Camino del Amor" sold 127 thousand copies and reached audiences in the United States and South America. Sebastian received the prestigious award "Premio Lo Nuestro a la Musica Latina" as recognition of his career.  In 2003 he was awarded the Songwriter of the universe Award for the second time.  His vast discography spans more than three decades and he remains one of the most famous singers and songwriters Mexico has.

 Tickets for the 8PM Joan Sebastian performance go on sale Friday, October 3rd for $149, $99, $89 and $69 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

September 23, 2014INDIO, CA – Presenting a one-of-a-kind concert experience showcasing four gifted Irish women - three stunning vocalists and a brilliant Celtic violinist, Celtic Woman return to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, December 13th to perform their timeless Christmas songs accompanied by the stirring instruments of a full symphony orchestra.

 The “Home for Christmas, the Symphony Tour” features music from the all-female music ensemble’s holiday releases; the platinum-selling A Christmas Celebration and recent Home For Christmas CD and live concert DVD, Home for Christmas: Live from Dublin.  Fans can expect to hear vibrant live renditions of such favorites as “Silent Night,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and “Joy To The World.”

 Named Celtic Woman in order to represent the essence of a Celtic female performer, the Home for Christmas, the Symphony Tour features the celestial vocals of Lisa Lambe, Susan McFadden, and Mairéad Carlin along with Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt. The lineup of performers has evolved in the years since the group’s inception, but the signature sound of Celtic Woman has remained consistent, under the direction of Emmy®-nominated music producer David Downes, former music director for Irish stage show Riverdance.

 In addition to its busy touring schedule, Celtic Woman remains active on the recording front.  The group's Emerald: Musical Gems (Manhattan Records Feb. 2014) debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Music album chart and held the top position for seven consecutive weeks.  The companion DVD, EMERALD: Musical Gems - Live in Concert, was seen across the country during spring PBS pledge drives.

 It was a decade ago that Celtic Woman first traveled from Ireland to America to introduce millions of new fans to the group’s fresh fusion of Irish musical tradition, contemporary song craft and state-of-the-art stage production. The group made its debut on television in 2005 with a concert performance which was filmed in Dublin and broadcast in the United States on PBS.  Although initially intended as a one-time-only event, the concert was so warmly received by the public that the group continued to perform and record. Since then, Celtic Woman's uplifting music has touched the hearts of a devoted audience that’s embraced the group’s massively popular public television specials, CDs and DVDs.

 Since 2005, Celtic Woman has sold more than eight million copies of its nine CDs and eight DVDs, making it the only all-female act to achieve multi-platinum success in the classical crossover and world music genres during the past decade.  In the U.S., each of Celtic Woman’s nine CDs has debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Album chart, where the group has occupied the top slot for a record-breaking 112 consecutive weeks.  Celtic Woman has also scored two Top 10 debuts on Billboard's influential album chart and five Top Five DVDs on Billboard's Top Video chart, as well as achieving platinum-level sales in nine countries.

 Celtic Woman has also emerged as an international touring powerhouse, selling out concert halls around the world and performing for nearly three million fans. Celtic Woman has performed for three U.S. Presidents and made high-profile appearances on American television shows Dancing with the Stars and the daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful.   

 Singing songs of love, loss, hope and inspiration, Celtic Woman has transcended national and cultural boundaries to celebrate the timeless emotion of Ireland's centuries-old heritage, extending those vibrant traditions into the present day. The result is a breathtaking musical and theatrical experience to be enjoyed by multiple generations of concertgoers.

 Tickets for the 8PM Celtic Women performance go on sale Friday, September 26th for $89, $69 and $49 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

September 22, 2014 – INDIO, CA – It will certainly be a jolly Christmas at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino as singer-comedian-celebrity impressionist and resident Las Vegas performer Terry Fator lights up the Special Events Center stage on Saturday, December 20th.

 Returning with Fator will be his all-star team of anything-but-ordinary puppets. Including Duggie the annoying neighbor, Emma the little girl with the big voice, Monty Carlo the lounge singer, Maynard Thompkins the world’s greatest Elvis impersonator, presidential candidate Walter, Julius the soul singer, Vikki “The Cougar,” Wrex the crash test dummy, hip hop diva Berry Fabulous and a few others. Each character allows Fator to sing a different genre in an unbelievable manner, with performances ranging from Garth Brooks and Dean Martin to Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga and more. 

 Fator’s rise to fame from his time with a Texas-based cover band to his very own theatre at The Mirage Hotel & Casino was 32 years in the making.  He first discovered his knack for impressions at the age of six, when he began performing Bill Cosby comedy routines for his family and friends. As a young man, Fator sang lead vocals for Texas the Band, a group whose playlist ranged from Garth Brooks to Guns N’ Roses.

 A trip to Las Vegas in 2005 sparked Fator’s desire to become a big-name entertainer and he left with visions of billboards and bright lights, all donning his name. Unwilling to give up on his dreams, Fator was persuaded to audition for “America’s Got Talent” when he saw a ventriloquist from season one on the “The Late Show with David Letterman.” During his audition, Fator stunned the judges with his puppet Emma Taylor and her impression of Etta James. In the final episode, a stunning Roy Orbison performance of “Crying,” courtesy of Winston The Impersonating Turtle, led to an eruption of praise from the audience, the judges and America. His life would never be the same.

 In one year, Fator went from small-town appearances to “The Today Show,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and, at long last, “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

 Tickets for the 8PM Terry Fator’s performance go on sale Friday, September 26th for $89, $69 and $49 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

On Friday, September 26th, the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians will celebrate this official holiday through traditional song and dance and use this day as a way to educate non-natives on the Native American culture.

 The holiday was established in 1998 as an official state holiday to teach people of all ages about the heritage of California’s Native American cultures, including stories, songs, languages and traditions for today and future generations. It is also a day to honor their culture and contributions.

 San Juanita Callaway, Vice-Chairwoman for the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians commented on the importance of California Native American Day. "For Native people, it’s a day to celebrate who we are through our own songs and dances given to us by our creator. It’s a day to take pride in the fact what we as a people have endured.  For the non-natives, it’s a perfect opportunity to learn about the people that were here, are here and will continue to be here on this great land.  It’s an opportunity to witness for them that our culture is one of reverence for all beings."

 A great way to learn about the history of the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians is to visit the Cultural Museum located on the reservation. Inside you’ll find interesting facts, artifacts and beautiful images of past and present day culture. Also, celebrating the Native American culture is the Annual Pow Wow hosted every November at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino Specials Events Center.

 All tribes throughout California will recognize this holiday. Some members of the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians will come together with neighboring tribe, Torres-Martinez in their celebration. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians Member-at-Large, Brenda Soulliere explained "I think it is a good day to commemorate for both native and non-native alike. It is also a great opportunity for the Native American community to come together and learn from each other and help to celebrate our Indianness with each other and with our families.  It is a special time to reflect on who we are, where we came from, where we are going and how we can help one another on our journeys through life."

                                         

The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians is a federally recognized Indian tribe with approximately 1,610 acres of reservation land in the Coachella Valley. The Tribe owns several business enterprises including Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.  Goals include growing and diversifying its business ventures to increase employment in the Coachella Valley, increasing the support of community programs, continuing to pursue economic self-sufficiency and preserving and educating the public about Cabazon culture.

September 5, 2014INDIO, CA – Last August, Kristen Wiig stepped into Fantasy Springs Resort Casino as Alice Klieg, the character she plays in the new American Comedy film, “Welcome To Me” released at the Toronto International Film Festival today. And during her filming at the casino, one of the film’s most startling moments has Wiig walking across the gaming floor completely naked and being tackled by one of Fantasy Springs’ Public Safety Officers.

 With regards to her nude scene through the casino, Wiig was quoted by the Los Angeles Times as saying, “Just one person and one phone and it would have been out there…we couldn’t really shut it down. We just had to find our little area. But no one saw anything. I mean, people saw everything, the extras saw everything.”

 The Los Angeles Times wrote…though privacy and security precautions were in place, the casino was still very much open for business.

 While the movie was mostly shot in the greater Los Angeles area, many scenes were filmed on the Fantasy Springs gaming floor and outside at the Valet. Filming also took place in the surrounding areas of Banning, Beaumont and Cabazon.

 In “Welcome To Me,” Wiig plays a woman who wins the lottery but suffers from a borderline personality disorder and decides to spend her earnings on a cable access talk show all about her life in the comedy. Will Ferrell, James Marsden, Alan Tudyk, Wes Bentley, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack also star.

LOS ANGELES (Aug. 28, 2014) - FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes will return to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. on Friday, October 10, as the latest edition of Golden Boy Live! features unbeaten local favorites Ronny Rios and Antonio “Relentless” Orozco in separate bouts in their toughest matchups to date.

 In the 10-round junior lightweight main event, Santa Ana’s Ronny Rios puts his perfect 23-0 record on the line against former WBC Silver Featherweight Champion Robinson “Robin Hood” Castellanos. Plus, undefeated welterweight Antonio Orozco of San Diego meets meet former World Champion Steve “2Pound” Forbes in the 10-round co-main event.

 Also in action will be unbeaten phenom Diego De La Hoya who will make his fourth appearance in Indio in a six round opening televised fight against an opponent to be announced and visiting Fantasy Springs Resort Casino as the special VIP guest to meet and greet fans will be International Boxing Hall of Famer, president and founder of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya.

 “It’s always an exciting night when we can put on an event at Fantasy Springs and this will be no exception,” said Oscar De La Hoya. “Ronny Rios and Antonio Orozco are two of this area’s most talented fighters and we’ll see if they’re ready for the next level on October 10. I’m also looking forward to seeing the new De La Hoya era take charge with my cousin Diego in the ring again and meeting everyone on fight night and talking about this great sport and what we can do to make it even better.”

 Rios vs. Castellanos, a 10-round junior lightweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona Extra, O’Reilly Auto Parts and Golden Ram Group. The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

 Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45, will go on sale TOMORROW, Friday, August 29 at 10:00 a.m. PT and will be available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.

 Santa Ana’s Ronny Rios (23-0, 10 KOs) can do it all in the ring and that ability has led him to an undefeated record in one of boxing’s toughest divisions. A standout amateur that transitioned smoothly to the pro game, the 24-year-old began making big moves in 2013, starting with his defeat of former world champion Rico Ramos for the NABF title. Since then, Rios has added three more wins, most recently defeating Andrew Cancio in April.

 Celaya Guanajuato, Mexico’s Robinson Castellanos’ (19-10, 12 KOs) record can be deceiving as the the 12-year professional hit a late stride in his career. The 32-year-old had a a rough start but has now boiunced back and won 11 of his last 12 bouts, including victories against Celestino Caballero and Derrick Wilson.

 Well deserving of the nickname “Relentless,” Antonio Orozco (20-0, 15 KOs) of Tecate, Baja California Mexico who now lives and trains out of San Diego, is a fearsome force in the ring, and he’s prepared to make his move toward a world title shot in 2015. With 2014 victories over veterans Miguel Angel Huerta and Martin Honorio, the 26-year-old knows another notable victory against Steve Forbes will help him make his case for a shot at the division’s elite.

 A seasoned veteran whose world championship experience has earned him respect throughout the boxing world, former Junior Lightweight World Champion Steve Forbes (35-13, 11 KOs) believes that at age 37, he still has another title run left in him. Hailing from Los Angeles, Forbes has been in with the best of the best over the years, including Oscar De La Hoya, Andre Berto, Cornelius Bundrage, Carlos Hernandez and John Brown. On October 9, he aims to use his experience to hand the younger Orozco his first loss in Indio.

 Just 20-years-old, Mexicali’s Diego De La Hoya (6-0, 5 KOs), who will be fighting an opponent to be determined, has made remarkable progress since turning professional in September of 2012. Unbeaten in four 2014 bouts, “The Golden Kid” is coming off of a fifth round technical knockout over Miguel Tamayo in his Las Vegas debut in July.

AL JARDINE JOINS BRIAN WILSON
AT FANTASY SPRINGS

July 30, 2014INDIO, CA – As if one founding member of the Beach Boys wasn’t enough, Fantasy Springs is pleased to announce Al Jardine, who will join Brian Wilson at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, August 30th.

Known more for being a storyteller than a musician in the lyrical sense, Jardine’s inspiration came from 1950’s folk music, which helped to develop the Beach Boys original sound. As the years went by and the group’s popularity grew, Al became a well-seasoned performer and a great vocal force within their ranks; with his guitar playing abilities becoming some of the most solid in the industry.

Jardine is responsible for some of the most recognizable Beach Boys songs including “Sloop John B.,” “Christmas Day,” “Cotton Fields,” and the #1 smash in 1965 “Help Me, Rhonda.” After the death of fellow band member, Carl Wilson, Jardine left the group to focus his efforts on the environment which ironically helped produce self-penned songs centered on welfare and environment issues.

In the late 1990’s, he recorded his first album Live in Las Vegas with the Endless Summer Band featuring Beach Boys song “Wild Honey.” And in 2010, Jardine released his debut album A Postcard from California, where Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and David Marks were contributors.

Tickets for the 8PM Brian Wilson with Al Jardine performance are on sale for $69, $49, $29 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

UNDEFEATED IVAN MORALES TO BE FEATURED IN CO-MAIN EVENT AGAINST FELLOW UNDEFEATED COUNTRYMAN SERGIO FRIAS ON FOX SPORTS 1 & FOX DEPORTES THIS FRIDAY, JULY 25, AT FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO

INDIO, CALIF. (July 23) - Mexican bantamweight phenomenon Ivan Morales looks to secure his twenty-sixth victory without a loss on Friday, July 25 when he faces off against countryman Sergio “Finito” Frias in the co-main event of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes' Golden Boy Live! fight night at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.

 On hand for all the action will be the legendary Erik “El Terrible” Morales who will cheer on his brother Ivan and meet and greet fans as the evening’s special VIP guest.

 In the main event, unbeaten junior welterweight Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez will be pushed to the limit by veteran contender Vernon Paris and opening up the televised portion of the card will be an eight-round middleweight bout between 2012 U.S. Olympian Terrell Gausha and Oklahoma’s Ronnie Warrior Jr.

 Gomez vs. Paris, a 10-round junior welterweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona, O'Reilly Auto Parts and Golden Ram Group. The doors will open at 5:00 p.m. and the first fight will begin at 5:05 p.m. The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 11:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. PT.

 Tickets, priced at $45, $35 and $25, are available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.

 Twenty-two-year-old Tijuana native Ivan “Nino Maravilla” Morales (25-0, 14 KOs) is a top Mexican prospect that hopes to add to his nation's rich boxing history by becoming a world champion in the coming years. While he's still young, his efforts thus far have shown him to be a mature fighter with a seemingly endless list of positive attributes. Coming off of a 10-round win over 40-fight veteran Jose Alfredo Tirado in April, Morales heads to Southern California this week to square off against Frias and showcase his skills.

 Sergio “Finito” Frias (15-3-2, 8 KOs) is a four-year professional who is unbeaten in his last three fights. A rugged brawler who knows how to mix it up in the ring, the 23-year-old Guadalajara native is ready for a big night in which he makes his Golden Boy Live! and United States debut against one of the top talents in the bantamweight division.

 2012 United States Olympian Terrell Gausha (10-0, 5 KOs) has been one of the most impressive members of the class of 2012 thus far. He’s already scored wins over George Sosa, Charles Whittaker and James Winchester in 2014. With Johnny Manziel and LeBron James making recent headlines in Gausha’s hometown of Cleveland, the 26-year-old wants to be the next big name in the sports-rich city. This week, he meets Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Ronnie “The Natural” Warrior Jr. (15-8-1, 5 KOs) in an eight-round fight. Winner of two straight, the 37-year-old Warrior Jr. has some gas in the tank to beat a hot prospect like Gausha.

 Looking to bounce back from the first loss of his career to Eddie Gomez in January, Orlando’s Daquan Arnett (11-1, 7 KOs) is set for an eight-round junior middleweight matchup against Gary, Indiana’s Angel Hernandez (16-16-1, 13 KOs). Before the Gomez bout, the 21-year-old Arnett defeated three prospects in a row and he’s aiming for a big win on July 25 against Hernandez, a veteran armed with experience and knockout power.

 Three hot prospects will put their perfect professional records on the line this week as well, with Racine, WI featherweight Mario Barrios (4-0, 1 KO) facing Salvador Perez (2-4-2, 1 KO) of Campeche, Mexico, Buenos Aires junior welterweight Damian Sosa (7-0, 6 KOs) will make his professional U.S. debut against Ryan Picou (1-3) of Los Angeles in a six-round junior welterweight bout and and North Hollywood native Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (9-0, 8 KOs) will face Demetrius Walker (7-5-1, 4 KOs) of Kansas City.

 A respected amateur standout who competed in the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials, Fort Myers, Florida’s Bryant Perrella (5-0, 4 KOs) has stopped four of his five professional opponents thus far, most recently halting previously unbeaten Benito Tovar in a single round in May. On Friday, he will seek his third victory of 2014 against 26-year-old Philadelphian Christian Steele (4-8-2, 1 KO), who is unbeaten in two of his last three.

 In middleweight action, popular Palmdale, Calif. resident Neeco Macias (5-0, 1 KO) looks to make it six straight in a four-round bout against Inglewood’s Robert Hill (1-5) and in the four-round super middleweight opener, Nashville, Tenn. native Caleb Plant (3-0, 1 KO) faces Los Angeles’ Ryan True (1-1-1, 1 KO).

UNDEFEATED STAR FRANKIE GOMEZ TO FACE THE HARD-HITTING VERNON PARIS IN JUNIOR WELTERWEIGHT SHOWDOWN ON FRIDAY, JULY 25 AT FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO

INDIO, CALIF. (July 7) - Unbeaten Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez is considered to be the most dangerous prospect in the junior welterweight division and on Friday, July 25, he will face his toughest challenge yet when he meets Florida’s Vernon Paris in the 10-round main event of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes’ Golden Boy Live! at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. The co-main event is expected to be just as heated when rising bantamweight star Ivan Morales is featured in a 10-round battle against an opponent to be determined.

 As a special treat for fans in attendance, the legendary Erik “El Terrible” Morales won’t just be at Fantasy Springs to cheer on his brother Ivan, the Mexican great will also meet and greet fans throughout the evening, making this a fight night that aficionados won’t want to miss.

 “We are so proud of the success of the Golden Boy Live! series to date and July 25th will be no exception,” said Oscar De La Hoya, president and founder of Golden Boy Promotions. “We are thrilled to provide a national television platform for rising stars such as Frankie Gomez and Vernon Paris to continue their mark on the sweet science.”

 Gomez vs. Paris, a 10-round junior welterweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona, O’Reilly Auto Parts and Golden Ram. The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

 Tickets, priced at $45, $35 and $25, will go on sale Friday, July 4 at 10:00 a.m. PT and will be available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.

 After a stellar amateur career, East Los Angeles’ Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez (17-0, 13 KOs) has made a steady rise in the ranks of the 140-pound weight class since turning professional in 2010. At just 22 years of age, sweet science insiders already expect him to make his move into the title picture within the next 12 months. To do that, he has to follow up his last four victories over Pavel Miranda (KO1), Lanard Lane (W10), Prince Doku Jr. (TKO1) and Orlando Vazquez (KO2) with another impressive showing against Paris, his toughest test to date on July 25.

 A native of the boxing-rich city of Detroit, 26-year-old Vernon Paris (28-1, 16 KOs) has one thing on his mind heading into his July 25 bout with Frankie Gomez - handing the Californian his first professional defeat. And if anyone has the talent and desire to do it, it’s Paris, a former USBA champion whose only loss came against multi-division former World Champion Zab Judah in 2012. Since then, Paris has won two fights straight and he’s looking for three at Fantasy Springs.

 Twenty-two-year-old Tijuana native Ivan “Nino Maravilla” Morales (25-0, 14 KOs) is a top Mexican prospect that hopes to add to his nation’s rich boxing history by becoming a world champion in the coming years. While he’s still young, his efforts thus far have shown him to be a mature fighter with a seemingly endless list of positive attributes. Coming off of a 10-round win over 40-fight veteran Jose Alfredo Tirado in April, Morales heads to Southern California later this month for his third fight in the United States against an opponent to be determined.

 A full undercard will be announced shortly.

The seven-bout fight card will display international and local talent; presented by San Diego's premier boxing promoter, Bobby D. Presents.

 Hailing from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico; Ruiz was selected as the 2012 Rookie of the Year in his hometown and has since gone on an impressive run - including a victory over the highly regarded Sergio Frias via second round TKO in April of 2013.  Now coming off a controversial loss in an unsuccessful bid for the IBA super flyweight title, Ruiz is back to his natural weight class of 112 pounds to face world-renowned boxer, Timu Shailezov.  Originally of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and fighting out of Los Angeles - Shailezov is fighting for only the third time within the U.S. in his illustrious career.  Shailezov has upset previously undefeated Miguel Cartegena via a third round TKO in Pennsylvania is his last bout and now looks to do the same to Ruiz.

 The co-main event features female fighters Chantel “Gorgeous Babe” Cordova (12-5-1, 3KO) of Pueblo, Colorado, and Patricia “Patty Boom Boom” Alcivar (7-2, 3KO) of New York in a super flyweight ten round fight for the vacant North American Boxing Federation (NABF) title.  Known as two of the best in their weight class, fireworks are expected when these two women face-off inside the ring.

 Also featured on the card will be undefeated light welterweight Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker (13-0-2, 9KO) of Dallas, Texas, as he faces his most experienced opponent in Jorge “Tigre” Pimentel (28-22, 22KO) of Guaymas, Mexico.  Pimentel has been in the ring with some of the most current up-and-coming prospects such as Mercito Gesta, Antonio Lozada, Jr. and Francisco Santana.

 Local talent Louis Rose (10-1-1, 3KO), “Rocky” Ramos (4-0-1, 1KO), Rafael “Divino” Espinoza (3-0, 2KO) and first-timer Alberto Fundora of Coachella also fight on this card.

INDIO, Calif., (May 14, 2014) – The acclaimed SHOWTIME Sports series ShoBox: The New Generation returns on Friday, June 6, with what promises to be a thrilling doubleheader featuring the top young talent for which the series is known. Televised live on SHOWTIME from the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif., the 10-round main event will feature undefeated California middleweight Hugo “The Boss” Centeno Jr. against fellow unbeaten Domonique “3D” Dolton of Detroit.

In the ShoBox co-feature, also scheduled for 10 rounds in the junior middleweight division, dynamic New York City phenom Eddie “E Boy” Gomez puts his perfect record on the line when he faces Francisco Santana of Santa Barbara, Calif.

Fighting out of Oxnard, Calif., 23-year-old Hugo “The Boss” Centeno Jr. (20-0, 11 KOs) is just starting to scratch the surface of his enormous potential. Winner of 90 amateur bouts, Centeno Jr. has added 20 professional wins as well, with victories over respected competition such as Ayi Bruce, Allen Conyers, KeAndrae Leatherwood and Angel Osuna, putting him on the short list of fighters expected to win a world title in the coming years.

A former amateur star who nearly secured a spot on the 2008 U.S. Olympic team, Domonique Dolton (14-0, 8 KOs) has been waiting for an opportunity like this for a long time, and he’s not about to let it pass him by. A protégé of the late, legendary trainer Emanuel Steward, the 23-year-old turned professional in 2008, and he has taken care of every challenge he has faced in impressive fashion. A winner of the WBC Fecarbox and NABA middleweight titles, Dolton is in stellar form heading into his ShoBox debut on June 6.

Hailing from the Bronx, N.Y., Eddie Gomez (16-0, 10 KOs) has done a lot in a short time thus far as a professional, following up a stellar amateur career with dominant victories over a high level of competition. In his last three bouts, the skilled boxer-puncher has defeated Luis Hernandez, Steve Upsher Chambers and Daquan Arnett, and he hopes to continue this stellar run with another big win on ShoBox.

Currently riding an impressive seven-fight winning streak, Santa Barbara’s Francisco Santana (19-3-1, 9 KOs) is expected to not just be Gomez’ toughest test to date, but a fighter with the potential to upset the unbeaten New Yorker. Owner of 2013 wins against Freddy Hernandez and Joachim Alcine, the 27-year-old will be looking to make it eight-in a row on June 6.

Centeno, Jr. vs. Dolton, a 10-round middleweight fight, is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, and sponsored by Corona. The ShoBox: The New Generation will take place on Friday, June 6 at Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio, Calif., and will be televised live on SHOWTIME beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast). Doors open at 3:00 p.m. PT and the first fight begins at 3:10 p.m. PT.

"I'm excited to be touring the US and Canada once again so that I can present my brand new Soy El Mismo Tour to them. I am looking forward to sharing it with all those North American fans that have been there from the very beginning," expressed Royce.

The artist's latest album Soy El Mismo debuted at #1 in US and PR in October and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. Its first single, "Darte Un Beso", was the #1 song in the country for 14 weeks according to Billboard's "Hot Latin Songs" chart. His second single, "Te Robaré", reached #1 on Billboard's "Latin Airplay" recently, marking Royce's eighth #1 and his seventh consecutive #1 single on the chart.

Prince Royce is the biggest breakthrough artist the Latin music industry has seen in many years. His self-titled debut album has been certified 3x Platinum in the US and Puerto Rico, and 4x Platinum in Chile. The twenty-four year old has recorded hit songs with superstars Maná, Daddy Yankee, Selena Gomez and Thalia, toured the US with Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull, closed 2012 with his own 30-city US tour which included sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall and the NOKIA Theatre LA LIVE, and was the winning coach in the debut season of the top-rated US Latin TV show La Voz Kids. He had the honor of performing at the prestigious Viña Del Mar Music Festival in 2012 garnering the top honors - something unprecedented for a young developing artist. Royce is a three-time Latin Grammy nominee and has won 20 Latin Billboard Awards, 16 Premio Lo Nuestro and 17 Premios Juventud. At the age of twenty-two, he garnered the Composer of the Year Award at the 2012 Latin Billboard Awards, becoming the youngest person in the history of the awards to receive the honor; and at 23 he won the 2013 BMI Latin Songwriter of the Year Award.
