LARA MEETS SANMARTIN IN MEXICO CITY ON OCT 22‘Bronco’ back in hometown – Fierro meets Cuevas – Mati fights for first pro title

Mauricio Lara makes his return to action against Jose Sanmartin in Mexico City, Mexico on Saturday October 22, live worldwide on DAZN.

Lara (24-2-1 17 KOs) is back in the ring following a trademark show of heavy artillery in March when he landed the 17th KO of his career against Emilio Sanchez in San Diego, and ‘Bronco’ is circling the World champions at Featherweight following his stunning upset win over Josh Warrington in February 2021. The 24 year old is itching to pursue a third clash with the IBF king from Leeds after their rematch ended in a disappointing technical draw in September 2021, and Lara knows another big KO win would put his name on everyone’s lips as a ‘must-see’ challenger to Warrington and his fellow belt-holders at 126lbs.

Those fights are what Sanmartin (33-5-1 21 KOs) is looking to gain for himself, and the Colombian believes he’s already tested himself against the best in the division when he met Emanuel Navarrete back in June 2018. That was the last time the 25 year old tasted defeat and his seven fight winning streak includes victory in Mexico City where he outpointed David Carmona to pick up the WBA Fedecentro Super-Bantamweight title in August 2021.

“I still wish to become world champion, none of what has happened has stopped me from it,” said Lara. “It’s been two years since I last fought in Mexico City, and I am so excited to be back with my people. I want to give them an overwhelming win and to hope I get the promised World title opportunity.

“I am more than excited for this opportunity to face a great fighter like Mauricio Lara,” said Sanmartin. “I believe that I have fought the best fighter already at 126lbs which is Navarrete, so I have the experience to beat Lara come October 22. I want to thank my promoter Shane Shapiro and Sean Gibbons for this life changing opportunity. Viva Colombia!”

Angel Fierro leads the co-main event as he faces Jeremy Cuevas for the WBO NABO Lightweight title. Fierro (19-1-2 15 KOs) is sitting pretty at #4 in the WBO rankings and is looking to cement his place on the cusp of World title action against the Philly fighter. Fierro was held to a split draw in his last outing against Juan Carlos Burgos in San Diego, and the 24 year old will want to get back onto the three-fight KO streak where he picked up and defended the title he puts on the line for the second time.

For Cuevas (14-1 10 KOs), this is the chance he’s been waiting for in his career, and the 26 year old returned from a two year absence from the ring with a six round shutout victory in Philly in July, and the southpaw is ready to capitalize on his ‘dream’ shot.

“I feel very good, I am happy to return, very motivated, I have done a very good preparation,” said Fierro. “I have not stopped training since my last fight and I want to leave people with a good taste in their mouths after my last fight against Burgos, I was not very happy with the decision and I want to make it clear that I am a great fighter, that I am ready for the big leagues, for a championship, to be World champion and I am very happy to return.

“I feel a great commitment to myself to show after the Matchroom fight that I am ready for other things. I am very grateful to life for giving me another opportunity here and to return to the ring this year and I think I feel very confident because of the preparation that I have with Fernando Fernández, with David, with Erik ‘Terrible’ Morales, I am very happy about that, and I am just waiting the day to get back in the ring and put on a great show for the people”.

“And I also want to show that I am ready for a Gervonta Davis, a Ryan Garcia, a Lomachenko, a Pitbull Cruz, I am ready for whoever they say, and I want to show in this fight that I am ready for the great fighters. I bring another mentality, after sparring with Devin Haney, the 135-pound absolute champion for the fight against Kambosos, after that I realized that I am a great fighter, that I am ready for the big leagues, and I bring a different mentality.”

“I’m very excited for this opportunity,” said Cuevas. “I have a great team behind me, and I’ve been working extremely hard, waiting for this kind of moment. This is a dream come true for me and I can’t wait to show the world who I am.”

Reshat Mati is gunning for his first title as a pro and must see off Mexican opposition in Diego Sanchez Santiago to claim the WBC Silver Youth Super-Lightweight belt.

Mati (12-0 7 KOs) has impressed in his dozen dances in the paid ranks, ending seven of them inside the distance, and takes a big step up in Mexico as his first title fight also marks his first over the ten-round distance. ‘The Albanian Bear’ adds a fourth country to his list having boxed in the States, England, and Italy, and he’ll have to fight both the passionate Mexican fans and their man Santiago (19-2 16 KOs) will want the home support to roar him on to make it second time lucky in title fights, having fallen short for the WBC Youth strap in April 2019.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity to fight for my first title as a professional, and I’m going into hostile territory to do it,” said Mati. “Fighting a Mexican fighter in Mexico, I know the crowd will be against me and I know he’s going to be extra motivated fighting on his home turf, but these types of moments motivate me.

“I’ve been doing this since I was a little kid, it’s nothing I haven’t been through before. I’m ready for a tough fight, to represent my country and bring this title home. It’s Albanian Bear time.”

An announcement on the venue and ticket sales will be made soon.

IT’S MAKHMUDOV vs TAKAM FIGHT WEEK IN MONTREAL

Montreal, Canada – Heavyweight boxing takes center stage in Montreal, Canada on Friday, September 16, when CARLOS TAKAM (Henderson, NV, 39-6-1 28KO’s) challenges six-time defending NABF Heavyweight Champion, undefeated ARSLANBEK “LION” MAKHMUDOV (Montreal, Canada by way of Russia, 14-0 14KO’s) at the Montreal Casino (Casino de Montréal) for the NABF and vacant NABA Heavyweight Titles.

Takam enters the 10-round main event seeking his 40th career victory as he returns to Montreal for the second time in his career. In 2014, Takam fought undefeated WBC Silver Heavyweight Champion, Mike Perez (then 20-0 12KO’s) to a controversial majority draw, with one judge giving Takam the fight.  Takam’s resume speaks for itself, and includes former unified heavyweight World Champion, Anthony Joshua, current #15 world rated (WBC) Dereck Chisora, current #2 (WBO), #3 (WBC), #6 (IBF) and #11 (WBA) world rated Joseph Parker, former world champion Alexander Povetkin and former world title challengers, Tony Thompson, Michael Grant and Frans Botha. Most recently in July of 2021, Takam traveled to the UK to face hometown favorite,, former Olympian, and current #1 (WBO), #2 (WBC), #5 (IBF), #8 (The Ring) world rated, Joe Joyce (12-0 12KO’s).  Takam gave Joyce all he could handle before an extremely controversial 6th round stoppage. At the time of the stoppage Takam was winning on all three judges’ scorecards. Takam is a former world title contender, IBF Inter-Continental, WBC Silver and WBF World Champion, who is set to take on the heavy-handed Makhmudov, hoping to prove he has enough left in the tank to position himself for one more heavyweight world championship challenge. 

Takam had this to say about the fight: “I’m excited about the opportunity to fight in Montreal once again.  Canada is great to visit, and the fans know their boxing. I’m healthy, in shape and ready to give my fans around the world what they have been asking for.  It’s time to get back in action and achieve my goals.”

Makhmudov stands at a staggering 6’5”, typically weighing in north of 260 lbs., has never gone beyond the 7th round of a fight, knocking out all of those that have attempted to challenge him. Makhmudov looks to defend his NABF title for the seventh straight time. Makhmudov who’s most recent victory was over Mariusz Wach by 6th round KO, endeavors to level up once again by adding a name with the merit and experience of Carlos Takam to his resume. 

“Carlos is a true veteran and is always willing to push himself to fight the best,” said Star Boxing CEO, JOE DEGUARDIA. “Whether its world champions like Anthony Joshua on eight days’ notice, top contenders like Joe Joyce in Joyce’s backyard in the UK, or now, a powerful rising prospect in Makhmudov, Takam always seeks the biggest fights and puts on entertaining performances for the fans. We expect the same thing come September 16.”

Makhmudov-Takam is promoted by Eye of the Tiger Management and Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.

ERNESTO SALCEDO WINS FECARBOX SILVER WBC TITLE ON ESTRELLATV’S BOXEO ESTRELLATV

ZINACANTEPEC, MEXICO – Last night, Hytan Ramos(11-5-2 & 3 KO’s) was technically knocked out at 52 seconds in the 10th round by Ernesto Salcedo (13-2 & 10 KO’s) in a 10-Round Super Bantamweight Fight. Salcedo took home the Fecarbox Silver WBC Title on EstrellaTV’s Boxeo EstrellaTV. The series occurs on the last Friday of every month, and last night, the fights were broadcast from Zinacantepec, Mexico.

A solid strategy and the tactical discipline of Ernesto Salcedo’s team were the keys to victory for a young man, who dominated most of the rounds, and was able to win by knockout in the final moments of the fight, taking revenge on what happened a year before.

Salcedo’s fight style – hitting, moving, and attacking from different angles – were a fighting style that Ramos could not decipher. Ramos was left at the mercy of Salcedo’s punishment, crushing Ramos little by little. Salcedo was successful in the first cut of cards, with an advantage of 37-39, 37-39, and 37-39 from the three judges.

Ramos forced the exchange of blows at shortstop; however, Salcedo attacked and came out with lateral steps, leaving many of his Ramos’ blows in the air, and with his guard down, to attack and continue scoring points.

Salcedo’s camp stuck to the fight plan and only gave their fighter instructions and words of encouragement so that Salcedo would remain calm and continue with what he worked on in the gym – taking advantage of Ramos’ mistakes to attack with overhands and hooks to the body.

The second entries generated greater despair in Ramos, seeing that they lost 73-79, 73-78, and 75-77, all in favor of Salcedo.

Visibly tired, Ramos gave it his all in the later rounds. Salcedo fired him up with a flurry of punches in his own corner but had to be rescued by referee Rafael Saldaña, ending the fight in the 10th round.

In the co-main event, Ricardo Tellez González from the State of Mexico was unable to defeat a brave Eduardo “Choco” Cortés from Puebla, who took the win by unanimous decision, 73-78, 74-78 and 75-76, in an 8-round lightweight fight.  

Jahaziel Ramos from Mexico City defeated Larry Serrano from the United States, by split decision, 39-37, 37-39, and 39-37, in a 6-round lightweight fight.

Bryan Becerril from the State of Mexico was caught off guard by a vicious left hook from Abraham “Gallo” Arreola of Mexico City, who earned the TKO victory at 23 seconds in the first round in a 4-round super bantamweight fight.

David “Chivo” Gutiérrez from the State of Mexico and Kennedy Serrano from the United States gave it their all; however, the judges gave a majority draw, 38-38, 37-39, and 38-38, in a 4-round welterweight fight. 

Hector “Sepulturero” Munguia from Mexico City and Fernando Job Chichia from the State of Mexico put on an exciting fight but could not break the majority tie, 38-38, 40-36, and 38-37, in a 4 -round featherweight bout.
