Archie Solis, Raul Garcia Doubleheader on 8/27 in Mexico

By Miguel Rivera

Zanfer Promotion is planning to stage a doubleheader on August 27th in Guadalajara, Mexico. The main event will feature Ulises "Archie" Solis making the first defense of his IBF junior flyweight title at the at the Auditorium "Benito Juarez." The event will be televised by TV Azteca. 

Solis (33-2-3, 21 KOs) will face Argentina's Eduardo Adrian Mendoza (13-1-1, 7 KOs), who is national champion in Argentina and the South American champion at junior flyweight.

"I am very happy to return for a fight on my land and for my people. I invite everyone to pack the Auditorio Benito Juarez. I know it will be a tough fight, because the Argentine boxer is younger than me and brings a lot of hunger for glory, but I have a lot of experience. I have fought 12 times in world championship fights and that will show in the ring," said Solis.

In the co-feature, Raul "Rayito" Garcia (30-1-1, 18KOs) will defend his WBO minimumweight title against Moses Fuentes (13-1, 6KOs).
