Dallas Finds Rebirth in Oakland

By Ryan Maquiñana

The upset bug affected Dallas in more ways than one this year.

While the Mavericks recently pulled off the feat against the world’s most hated team, the Miami Heat, in the NBA Finals, Mike Dallas Jr. was conversely snakebitten in Temecula by Josesito Lopez five months ago.

Now the light welterweight prospect looks to rebound at the very same site when he takes on once-beaten Mauricio Herrera at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in the “ESPN2 Friday Night Fights” co-feature.

“I’m very confident that everything I’ve learned will show up against Herrera,” said the 24-year-old Dallas, 17-1-1 (7). “I’ve learned a lot of new stuff up in this camp from my new trainer.”
