Today in Tijuana, Baja California, WBC President Mauricio Sulaimán and promoter Fernando Beltrán presented José “Chon” Zepeda with the WBC silver super lightweight belt following his epic eight-knockdown brawl against Ivan Baranchyk that many consider one of the best fights of all time.
“I am proud to be part of Zanfer and to represent the WBC. I am very happy, and I think all the sacrifices I have experienced are worth it for moments like this,” said Zepeda.“We always dream of starring in dramatic fights and thank God I had this opportunity. This triumph belongs to my entire team. Thank you very much.”
Zepeda will now patiently await his rematch against world champion José Ramírez.
