Boxeo Telemundo Returns this Friday when WBO Latino Super Lightweight Champion Yomar “The Magic” Alamo Faces Adrian “Chinito” Yung, Live on Telemundo at Midnight ET.
Boxeo Telemundo, the #1 boxing program among Hispanics and longest-running sports show in Spanish-language television, debuts its summer season with WBO Latino Super Lightweight Champion Yomar “The Magic” Alamo putting his undefeated record and title on the line against Mexican challenger Adrian “Chinito” Yung in a 10-round bout, this Friday, August 13 at midnight ET, live on Telemundo, Telemundodeportes.com and the Telemundo Deportes App.
Yomar Alamo (19-0-1), a former WBO/NABO Champion and current #9 ranked contender, makes his first title defense of 2021 after winning his WBO Latino belt this past March, displaying a dominating 10-round performance against the tough veteran Jesus Beltran.
On the other side of the ring, Adrian “Chinito” Yung (28-6-2) is riding a two-fight win-streak leading into his title match with Alamo. Yung is representing the boxing hotbed of Los Mochis, where many great champions have emerged. In his Boxeo Telemundo debut, Yung is hoping to pick up his first regional belt and spoil Alamo’s plans.
