Tayden “The Butcher” Beltran (8-0-1, 4 KOs), the undefeated lightweight prospect from Huntington Beach, CA, will headline CBN Promotions fight card this Saturday (June 22) at Thunder Studios in Long Beach, California. 

Beltran will battle Cesar Villarraga (10-9-1, 5 KOs) in a scheduled eight-round main event bout. The entire event will be broadcast live on Fubo Sports, Fox Deportes, Stadium, Gray TV, and tape delayed on Estrella TV

Beltran, unsurprisingly, is keen to make it clear he’s had a good camp. But when have you heard a fighter about to partake in a fight say anything different?

“I had a very productive training camp this time around,” he reported. “Everything we worked on showed up in sparring and I dominated a few sessions. All the nutrition was perfect, and my weight is on point. I’m going into this fight feeling really strong.”

Colombia’s Villaraga, 38, has no doubt been picked for his durability. Only one of his nine defeats came inside schedule. A popular foe for up-and-comers, Villaraga’s last five bouts came against unbeaten fighters. Though he defeated one of them - the 6-0 Brandon Mendoza in 2022 - Villaraga can only boast two victories from his last 12 fights.

“I just know he’s a durable guy with over 20 fights and he’s only been stopped once,” Beltran saod of Saturday’s opponent. “My goal is to come out and execute the game plan we’ve put together and come out victorious by all means necessary. If I hurt him at any point, I will go for the knockout.”

This contest will mark Beltran’s first as the lead attraction.

“I’m really excited to be fighting in my first main event, especially at home on national television,” he said. “A lot of people will get to know my name and my fighting style after this fight. I bring a lot of action to the ring and I can’t wait to perform for the fans.

“A win against a crafty veteran like Villarraga will help me climb the rankings. I’m hoping a victory will open doors to bigger and better fights.”
