For many years I followed Stephen DeBro online to read updates of a project he was working on. The project was a documentary called “18 & Grand: The Olympic Auditorium Story” about the historic venue in Los Angeles. “The Olympic” was the Madison Square Garden of the West Coast. It was built in 1925, and held some of the biggest and most memorable events in the city’s history during its heyday. The film was released in 2021.

 Adam “Bomb” Flores was a Ventura County heavyweight prospect back in the 1990’s. It was rare but exciting to see a Latino heavyweight when the city of Oxnard had just started to make some noise in the boxing world. I first saw Flores on an undercard fight in Oxnard which featured the debut of the city’s 1996 Olympian “Ferocious” Fernando Vargas that was televised on the popular “Tuesday Night Fights” series on March 25, 1997 on the USA channel. Since ending his career in 2000, Flores has managed, coached, and mentored local fighters in Ventura County. He has also done some acting appearing in the 1998 film “Snake Eyes” starring Nicholas Cage and Gary Sinise. We talk about all this and more. Check this interview out!

    I had the pleasure to have Ventura County boxing trainer Ruben Juarez on our podcast for TheBoxingBar.com. Juarez grew up in Ventura, CA and got into boxing to get away from hanging out in the streets.

Ruben worked as the coach for the boxing program at Ventura’s Westpark Recreation Center. In July 1993, he was shot in the stomach area by an Oxnard gang member. “They removed six feet of intestine from me”, said Juarez during our interview yesterday. In time Juarez, would be working with all the talent from the famed La Colonia Boxing Club which is in the neighborhood of the gang he was shot by. “There were never any issues there, because I was working with the youth”, explained Juarez. He has worked with Robert Garcia, Fernando Vargas, Rolando Reyes, Jose & Mario Aguiniga, Carlos “El Terror” Madrigal, ect.     Today, Juarez works full-time for the County of Ventura, owns K.O.

After seven successful title defenses, Palomino lost the title via split decision to Wilfred Benitez in Puerto Rico. In his next fight, he took on the Latino boxing icon “The Hands of Stone” Roberto Duran but lost by decision and announced his retirement in 1979. During his career, Palomino was attending college to get a degree which included an acting class. In 1977, he was offered to come out in one of the first episodes of a new show that would become popular called “Taxi” that starred ex-boxer Tony Danza. In the 80’s and 90’s, he would come out in many shows like Buck Rogers, Highway to Heaven, Knight Rider, Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue, and several movies and commercials as well. Almost eighteen years later, Palomino made a comeback to the sport for five pro fights in 1997.
