Nery-Figueroa lands in LA

Undefeated super bantamweight champions will meet for 122-pound supremacy when Luis Nery (31-0, 24 KOs) makes the first defense of his WBC world title against Brandon “Heartbreaker” Figueroa (21-0-1, 16 KOs) in the headline attraction of a three-fight card live on Showtime May 15 from Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. The winner of this fight will be in line to face WBO 122-pound champion Stephen Fulton on September 11 in a unification showdown.

  • The best version of Nery I’ve ever seen walks right through the best Figueroa I’ve ever seen, but we’ll see who shows up on fight night.

  • Sounding like a very entertaining fight card!
    If Nery uses his skill and doesn’t try to barrel thru Figueroa, he should win handedly.
    However, he has been “touched” by lesser fighters when he’s overconfident

  • Nery is too
    much for both Figueroa and Fulton. All he needs is to stay on the weight limit.
