   Fidel "El Negro" Avendano was a favorite on the Los Angeles area boxing scene in the 1980's & 1990's.  He opened his pro career on March 26, 1988 with a decision win over Aaron Herrera, then ran off a string of victories going to 26-0, 17 ko's.

   He was stopped by Omar Flores in the 10th round for the Mexican National Lightweight Title.  in 1991 he defeated  former U.S. Olympian - Kelcie Banks by a unanimous 12 round decision to win the Forum lightweight tournament title.

   He lost bids for the WBO & WBB Lightweight World Titles, and was denied the WBF & California State Titles earning draws in both of those title challenges.  Fidel fought to an 8 round draw against Jamal Harris in his final pro bout on Dec. 18 of 2000.
