Anselmo originally won the WBA World Bantamweight Title in 2008 and was elevated to the sanctioning body’s “Super” Bantamweight World Champion after making his fifth title defense in 2010.

The 29-year-old Anselmo, 35-2-1 (12KO’s) has lost only once in the last twelve years, a very close, hard fought 12-round battle to then Pound-For Pound candidate Abner Mares in November 2012.
 
The undefeated Payano, 15-0-0 (8KO’s) will be challenging for his first world title, having pitched a shutout decision win over tough veteran German Meraz on February 22 in his first action of 2014.
 
The 30-year-old Payano represented the Dominican Republic in the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games, victorious in the first round of each tournament.
