Napa’s Brandon Trejo continues his professional career on Saturday when he faces Bogar Padilla in a four-round bout in the 131-pound lightweight division on a Thompson Boxing Promotions and Banner Promotions card at Salinas Storm House in Salinas.
Trejo, who trains out of the Napa County Sheriff’s Activities League gym, has a 3-0 record. Padilla is from Ensenada, Mexico and is 0-1.
Trejo won his pro debut in May of 2017, a unanimous four-round decision over Pablo Cupul of San Diego in Ontario, Calif.
Trejo continued his career by winning a four-round unanimous decision over Devin Parker of New Orleans in the lightweight division in Sacramento last July.
He won by technical knockout in the third round of his lightweight bout last October in Ontario, Calif. The referee stopped the bout, scheduled for four rounds against Carlos Apodaca of Mexicali, Mexico, at 1:21 of the third round.
Trejo turned professional last year after a highly decorated amateur career, during which he competed at local, state, national and international levels over a 12-year span. He 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.
