Photos/Weights: Andres Gutierrez vs. Mario Macias

LOS ANGELES - Unbeaten in 30 professional fights, super bantamweight standout Andres "Jaguar" Gutierrez will look to keep his "0" intact on Saturday, August 9, when he defends his WBC Silver Championship at home against Mexico City's Mario "Huracan" Macias at the Auditorio Jose Maria Arteaga in Queretaro, Mexico. Both boxers came in at the division limit of 122-pounds.

This 12-round main event will be broadcast on Televisa and FOX Deportes, along with a 10-round co-main event featuring the IBF Female Minimumweight Title Fight between Mexico City's Victoria Argueta and Guadalajara's Alondra Garcia. Aguerta was 103.8-pounds and Garcia was 104.9-pounds.

Currently ranked number one in the world by the WBC, Andres "Jaguar" Gutierrez (29-0-1, 22 KOs) is a super bantamweight phenom closing in on 30 wins and a world title shot at the age of 21. The owner of several regional titles over the course of his career, the Querétaro, Méxiconative has owned the WBC Silver belt since 2013, and he's looking forward to making his third defense this weekend.

Fresh from the biggest win of his career, an eighth-round technical knockout of highly-touted Braulio Santos in March, 29-year-old Mario "Huracan" Macias (26-12, 13 KOs) hopes to deliver another upset victory on Saturday against Gutierrez. A nine-year pro who challenged for the WBA World Bantamweight Title in 2011, Macias is now hoping to move up the 122-pound ladder in the coming months.

Three months removed from her title-winning effort against Nancy Franco in May, IBF Minimumweight Champion Victoria Argueta (12-1, 4 KOs) will defend her belt for the first time on Saturday, and this talented 23-year-old has every intention on staying on top for a long time.
