Boxeo Telemundo will kick off their fall series tonight from the famed BB Auditorium in Mexico City, Mexico. The 10 round light flyweight main event will feature WBA Fedecentro champion and WBA #15 ranked Axel “El Mini” Aragon Vega (14-4-1, 8 KOs) defending versus WBC #14 Armando “Ichiro Ozeki” Torres (26-19, 19 KOs).

Vega showed in his last fight versus WBA light flyweight world champion Hiroto Kyoguchi (15-0, 10 KOs) that he is more than capable of competing at the next level. Two of the official judges had the fight even and the other had Vega ahead after 4 rounds. An unfortunate hand injury suffered by Vega ultimately saw him lose by an official 5th round TKO. That is all behind him now and Vega is ready to pursue another world title opportunity. Continue reading “Mini Vega looks to rebound tonight”

Four-weight titleholder Mikey Garcia (40-1 30 KOs) is plotting his path back to becoming a world champion again – starting with his return to action against European super lightweight champion Sandor Martin (38-2 13 KOs) on Saturday night at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, California, live worldwide on DAZN.

Garcia still has designs on winning a belt at welterweight to become a five-weight king, and should he secure victory over Martin as expected, he’ll be hunting former super lightweight champ Regis Prograis for a showdown at 147lbs – but he’s also open to facing undisputed 140lb king Josh Taylor.

Wilder congratulates Fury on social media

Deontay Wilder Statement: Wow, what a hell of a night! I would like to first and foremost thank God for allowing me to give the world another part of me that’s driven with passion and determination. I would like to thank my team and my fans for sticking by my side through this long process.

I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed in the outcome but after reflecting on my journey, I now see that what God wanted me to experience is far greater than what I expected to happen. We didn’t get the win but a wise man once said the victories are within the lessons. I’ve learned that sometimes you have to lose to win. Although, I wanted the win I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more.

Hopefully, I proved that I am a true Warrior and a true King in this sport. Hopefully, WE proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in.

Last but not least I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.
