Fortress Mexico in Cuernavaca, Morelos - On this occasion, the frequently feared scale became a test, a mere step, as the protagonists of the boxing evening presented by Zanfer this Saturday at the Estadio Centenario de Cuernavaca, freed this requirement without problems.
The unbeaten world ranked Pedro "Roca" Campa (27-0, 21 KO's) from Guaymas, Sonora is going for his third win of the year, when he faces the complicated Carlos "Torito" Jimenez (17-8-1, 6 KO's) from Mexico City in scheduled 10-round Super Lightweight bout.
Pedro Campa 140.3 lbs, Carlos Jiménez 140.1 lbs
Yazmín Rivas 121.8 lbs, Yareli Larios 121.5 lbs
Bryan González 130 lbs, Andrés Robles 131lbs
Jorge García 147 lbs, Rodrigo Hernández 147 lbs
Adrian Curiel 108 lbs, Armando Mejía 109.5 lbs
Daviz Picazo 122 lbs, David Cuellas 122.5 lbs
Vladimir Sandoval 154 lbs, Luis Enrique Reyes 155 lbs
Both the undefeated Campa, and the never-knocked out Jimenez, weighed in at 140 pounds, and reportedly were ready to step into the ring. The motivation and confidence were notorious at the time of their posing for the photographers, and it was evident the arduous preparation was realized, when showing off their in-shape physiques.
"I'm ready and motivated to give a great show to the fans of Morelos and all the viewers of Box Azteca, I'm going for the knockout, in 2018 Zanfer will look to get me a huge opportunity, I can not lose. It's taken me a lot of effort and years to get to this point," said Campa.
Yazmin "Rusita" Rivas (36-10-1, 10 KO's) and young undefeated Yareli "Chololita" Larios (12-0-0, 2 KO's) ), will collide for the international super bantamweight belt of the WBC over 10 rounds.
At this weight, Yazmin was more relaxed and muscular, while Yareli looked athletic, thin but very strong. This clash matches experience vs. youth.
