The card stars Ramón “Inocente Álvarez vs. undefeated Jorge “Pilón” Lara. Yet,
Ganigan López (#5 WBC) vs. Mario Rodríguez (# 8 WBC ex world champion) will be a crucial stepping stone for the winner.
“Maravilla” López (23-5, 15 KOs) comes to this fight, fresh from a convincing points victory against teak tough Filipino Mateo Handig. While “Dragoncito” Rodríguez (16-8-4, 11 KOs) came up with the goods against Odilón Zaleta, proving himself the marginally brighter spark, with a split decision, after ten fiery rounds.
