“We are excited for this card – not only because it includes WBA and WBC title fights – but also so we can welcome fans back into the venue with the lifting of COVID restrictions,” said Ricardo Maldonado Jr., owner, Producciones Deportivas.
“This is a pivotal card for boxing in Mexico. We are hosting the much-anticipated return of the unbeaten Venezuelan phenomenon Carlos Cañizales. He has not been in the ring since 2019, and we’re thrilled to bring fight fans this match against the young, exciting fighter Esteban Bermudez, a durable and very strong fighter. It’s going to be a hell of a fight, guaranteed. This 12-round fight will continue the action we have brought to the past two ‘Boxeo EstrellaTV’ fight cards.”
The night is headlined by current WBA World Light Flyweight Title holder Carlos Antonio Cañizales (22-0 & 7 KO’s) vs. Esteban Bermudez (13-3 & 9 KO’s) in a 12-round title fight. The monthly boxing night will feature the much-anticipated return to the ring by Cañizales as he defends his title. Undefeated, Cañizales last fought in 2019 when he beat Sho Kimura in a unanimous decision. He meets Bermudez, a future star of Mexican boxing.
The co-main fight is the WBC Fecarbox Super Bantam title fight featuring Colombia’s surprising Belmar Preciado (21-3 & 14 KO’s) vs. Mexico City’s three-time world title challenger David “Severo” Carmona (21-6 & 9 KO´s).
