Barrios will face Manuel Vides (18-4, 11 KOs) in a scheduled 8-round bout that will be part of the televised portion of PBC on NBCSN.
This will mark the seventh fight of 2015 for Barrios who made his televised debut on November 10th, a bout that was shown on PBC on FOX. In that fight Barrios defeated his toughest opponent to date in Enrique Tinoco (15-2-2, 11 KOs), winning by unanimous decision.
Barrios recently wrapped up training camp in Houston, TX, where he was working out with fellow Texan and undefeated featherweight contender Miguel Flores (18-0 9 KOs). Barrios wants to continue bringing excitement to the 130 pound division with another spectacular performance.
“I’m excited to be fighting back on television,” said Mario Barrios who hails from San Antonio. “I had a great training camp out in Houston where I got some great sparring with Miguel Flores and a few other good fighters. I feel I’m growing as a fighter and I can’t wait to mix it up this Saturday. Many of my family and friends will be in attendance so you better believe I’m coming to win and win impressively.”
