The world ranked No. 1 of the minimum weight in the World Boxing Association (WBA), the Cuban resident in Panama, Daniel Matellón, assured that he will successfully defend his position this Saturday when he faces the Mexican Iván ‘Magnifico’ García.
The fight, scheduled for 10 rounds and 108 pounds, will be the star of the show that will take place at Los Andes Mall, which is organized by the companies Master Promotions and Ricardo Maldonado Productions and will be broadcast live on Nex Panama Canal 21.
“We are classified as No. 1 in the category and we have to come out with the victory to ensure that match that we long for so much to go for the world crown,” said Matellón, who has a record of 12 wins, zero losses, two draws and six knockouts.
However, Matellón will have a difficult test when he faces the Mexican Iván ‘Magnifico’ García, who only has one loss in 12 matches (10-1-1 (6 KO).
“We come from Mexico to snatch the world ranking. It’s a great opportunity and I’m not going to miss it”, said ‘Magnifico’ García, 23 years old.
The function will have another five fights, among which the one that will hold the Panamanian prospect Orlando ‘Virus’ Mosquera against the Brazilian Jackson Furtado at 10 rounds and 135 pounds; Carlos ‘Gallero’ Rodríguez (Panama) vs. Brandon Jiménez (Mexico) at 6 rounds and 113 pounds; and Natalie Delgado (Panama) vs Estefanía Alvarado (Ecuador) at 6 rounds and 115 pounds. Two other lawsuits complete the show.
