April 8 / Lerato Dlamini vs. Sidney Maluleka / South Africa

Lerato Dlamini and Sidney Maluleka, two South Africans warriors, are ready and more than willing to try their level best, not only to thrill the fans, but also because the WBC international title in the featherweight division, is up for grabs.

April 21 / Jermall Charlo vs. Hugo Centeno / New York

Hugo Centeno reports he’s fully recovered from an injury and ready to face Jermall Charlo for the interim WBC middleweight belt. A match that has awakened enormous expectations, since Charlo comes from defeating Jorge Heiland in four rounds, while Centeno reaches this commitment with a victory by knockout over Immanuwel Aleem.
