Hevinson replaces Guillermo Sánchez, who had to pull out the fight because of an injury to his left hand. Abner will defend his WBC FECARBOX lightweight championship, and the two boxers will also fight for the vacant Americas lightweight championship of the World Boxing Board (WBB).

I have had a great camp and I am in the best condition of my career. I know Hevinson is a strong fighter who comes forward, but I will remove him from my path," said Abner.
