The former University of Miami fullback and son of Los Angeles Rams (1979-80) and Miami Dolphins (1981-84) running back Eddie Hill, faces another heavyweight, Riverside's Javier Francisco Diaz, in promoter Roy Englebrecht's latest Battle In The Ballroom show at the Irvine Marriott.

It was only Hill's second professional bout (he won his first), so he has much to prove tonight against 2-3 Diaz.
The card also features 5-0 heavyweight prospect Natu Visinia facing 3-4 Justin Reigle of Ohio.
Two middleweights seeking their first pro wins square off: Santa Ana's Bobby Chavez against LA's Cesar Flores. Both are 0-1. Middleweights Lawrence Letuli of Vista and Non Bognjumong of Thailand face one another in their pro debuts.
Tickets are $32 and $40. Seven amateur heavyweight bouts kick things off at 6 p.m. Go to battleintheballroom.com for more info.
