Miami, Fla: Boxeo Telemundo closes their Summer series next Friday, August 27, with the main event that many believe will be an all-out war. WBA Fedecentro Champion Dennis ” El Martillo” Contreras (24-10-1-22 KO’s) has resurrected his career by beating four top prospects on Boxeo Telemundo, Fernando Garcia 12-0, Belmar Preciado 20-2, Carlos Flores 20-0 and Hairon “El Maja” Socarras 23-1. These four wins have put El Martillo in contention for a shot at a world title. First, however, he must face battle-tested two-time world title challenger Cesar ” Corazon” Juarez, War-ez (26-10-20 KO’s) of Mexico City, Mexico. Juarez is promoted by boxing guru Sean Gibbons. Gibbons believes that his fighter “War-ez,” as he refers to him, can bring enough ammunition to go for another title run if he was to come out victorious. This fight is a crossroads fight for both fighters.
” I see this fight as a “pick-em” fight. It is hard to say who has the advantage. These fights are the ones that fight fans love to see. No one is favorite; they are both two warriors looking for one more title shot.” said Felix “Tuto” Zabala, Jr. President of All Star Boxing
The show will have a total of 8 bouts; the undercard will be announced shortly.
Contreras vs Juarez will broadcasted LIVE on Telemundo at 12 AM. Check your local listings.
