Napa’s Brandon Trejo, 2-0 as a professional, is scheduled to fight next on Oct. 20 on a Thompson Boxing Promotions card in Ontario, east of Los Angeles.

Trejo, who trains out of the Napa County Sheriff’s Activities League at Napa State Hospital, won a four-round unanimous decision over Devin Parker of New Orleans in the lightweight division on July 1 in Sacramento. The bout was part of an outdoor Thompson Boxing card at Omega Products International.

It was Trejo’s second pro fight after a long amateur career.

“He is in the gym, training regularly, and occasionally helping other Northern California professional fighters with sparring as they prepare for their upcoming fights,” said Oscar Ortiz, a lieutenant with the Napa County Sheriff’s Office and Trejo’s trainer. “His more intense training regimen, however, won’t start until the end of this month.”

The 5-foot-9 Trejo is a Napa native and a 2015 graduate of Valley Oak High School.

He has competed at local, state, national and international levels over a 12-year span as an amateur, going back to when he was 8.

Trejo was a gold medalist at the 2012 USA Junior World team trials. He joined Team USA and went on to represent the U.S. at the Junior World Championships in Kiev, Ukraine.
