The main event of the KO Drugs event in Panama on 17 December, will be Luis ‘Nica’ Concepcion defending his interim 115 pound WBA title against Mexican Giovanni Segura.
The promotion will be held at the Arena Roberto Duran in Panama City and is expected to be made up of eight or nine fights including two interim world titles and other regional belt of the World Boxing Association.
Given the Panamanian media attention, “Nica” Concepcion said he is aware of the commitment that comes with the fight against Segura.
“I’ll be better prepared and psyched. Not like before when fighting (Hernan) Tyson Marquez,” Commented the interim champion, who is already in the gym preparing to enter the ring.
“I will do my work as instructed by my coaches and I will not hurry to knock out anyone. If that comes then great, but I’ll put my mind to the test on the night.”
My opponent is a very dangerous opponent, so I’ll be well prepared. I think it’s a big challenge and I face it with great dedication. I’m going to win because I’ll be well prepared and because the fans expect me to win in those big fights,” he concluded.
The promoter Rogelio Espiño also said: “We take a risk with this fight for Nica, but also it is an opportunity to show he is one of the best. Then we expect that in early 2016 the fight can be done with the Japanese world champion Kohei Kono.”
