Jardon Headlines March 18 Boxeo Telemundo Card

By Jake Donovan

High octane super featherweight prospect Dante “Crazy” Jardon returns to the ring on Friday, March 18, making his debut on the Boxeo Telemundo circuit when he faces Humberto Martinez in a 12-round main event.

Jardon (15-1, 13KO), a regular on Televisa, fights on a new network but in familiar surroundings. The Mexican slugger headlines his third straight card at Jose Cuervo Salon in Mexico City. The venue has also played host to four of his first five pro fights, including his lone loss in just his second bout.

Jardon enters the show riding a 14-fight win streak, though with both non-knockout wins coming in his last two fights. Even without winning inside the distance, he still impressed in a dominant points win over Rene Gonzalez earlier this year.

The bout with Martinez will be Jardon’s first scheduled 12-rounder.

Martinez (20-5-1, 14KO) leaves Colombia for just the third time in his career, having lost a decision in his only appearance to date in Mexico.

Also featured in the televised chief support will be free-swinging teenaged featherweight Josue “Chino” Veraza (11-1-1, 10KO), who has become a favorite both at the hosting venue and on the long-running Boxeo Telemundo series.  

Veraza has scored three straight second-round knockouts, all taking place in front of the camera and in this very location.
