Prolific Nicaraguan promoter Marcelo Sanchez’ Pinolero Boxing offers up another superb fight card this Saturday, Dec. 5, following on the heels of its 100th boxing promotion show.

Highlighting the fight card is a rubber match between 21-year-old Nicaraguan prospect Junior Ramirez (13-1, 9 KOs) versus David Bency. Ramirez is the World Boxing Youth Silver Super Lightweight Champion who was undefeated and scheduled to defend his title last month in Monte Carlo. However, he was upset by a fighter he had previously beaten, Bency, in their rematch.

Also fighting on the card is No. 1 ranked Nicaraguan bantamweight Dixon Flores (11-3-2), who recently accepted the challenge to fight sensational Mexican champion Carlos Cuadras (32-0-1), and he now hopes to rebound and continue moving forward. His opponent will be undefeated 20-year-old Jose Perez (16-0, 13 KOs), the No. 1 rated super flyweight in Nicaragua, in what promises to be an explosive fight.

Also fighting on the eight-bout card is superstar Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez’ cousin, fellow Nicaraguan Christopher Rosales (15-2, 11 KOs). The 21-year-old Gonzalez faces Martin Diaz (8-3-1) as he rises in the rankings after losing a hotly contested, close decision to undefeated Khalid Yafai (17-0, 11 KOs) in the United Kingdom. Rosales is currently ranked No. 10 in the world, No. 1 in Nicaragua.

“Marcelo (Pinolero Boxing) continues to offer a steady flow of intriguing fight cards like this Saturday’s, as does his Central American Panamanian neighbor, Rogelio Espino, of Promociones y Eventos del Istmo,” Pinolero Boxing spokesperson Michael Schmidt commented. “It is apparent that young championship-caliber fighters such as Ramirez, Flores, and Rosales are more than prepared to step up and accept challenges. They’re all in their early twenties with each having had 14 or more battle-hardened fights. They continue to move up in the rankings while gaining the necessary experience to add to Nicaraguan’s storied history of championship fighters.”

“We thank all of our associates who work with us to help us promote these types of intriguing fight cards,” Sanchez added. “This Saturday will be another exciting night of boxing.”
