Boxing Bites: Nery set for Silver defense, Chocolatito out of December fight

RINGSIDE 27/11/2018


Tijuana native Luis “Pantera” Nery will close the year with a fight on his continuing road back.

The fighter is seeking absolute title glory once again.

Nery (27-0-0, 21 ko’s) will be defending his World Boxing Council silver championship, fighting Argentinian Carlos Jorge Luis Sardinez (13-1-0, 2 ko’s) on Saturday, December 1, in Coahuila, Mexico.

“Pantera” wants to be WBC bantamweight champion anew, but before all that he must defeat “Baby” Sardínez.

He is a fighter of sound technique and speed, and in only a few professional fights, he captured the South American championship.

Sardinez also has plenty of experience as an amateur.

Carlos Jorge, in his most recent fight, overcame Carlos Farías by decision.

Luis, on the other hand, knocked out Jason Camoy in three rounds in October in Tijuana.

Four-time world champion Roman “Chocolatito” González will not fight on December 8 in Carson, California, due to an injury to his right knee that will prevent him from taking on Mexican Pedro Guevara.

Even though he tried to continue training during the following days the pain persisted, limiting his mobility.

This would have been his second bout after being twice defeated by Srisaket Sor Rungvisai last year, and this injury won’t allow him to fight the rest of this year.
