Photos/Weights: Nieves vs. Poras, Ugas vs. Rivera

by Jake Donovan

All fighters successfully made weight for the 2012 season finale of Boxeo Telemundo, which airs live from the Civic Center in Kissimmee, FL (Friday, Telemundo, 11:35PM ET).

In the main event, Jose ‘Maui’ Nieves takes on Glenn ‘The Rock’ Porras in a 12-round bantamweight battle. Nieves came in at 117.4 lb, while Porras was right at the divisional limit of 118 lb.

Nieves (28-3, 17KO) – based out of Carolina, Puerto Rico - enters the fight on the heels of a three-fight win streak, all of which has taken place at this very venue. Porras (20-2-3, 9KO) fights in the U.S. for the third straight time after a career spent almost exclusively in his native Philippines.

The co-feature is as good as it gets for any non-headlining bout in the 10 years of the reformed Boxeo Telemundo series. Former title challenger Cosme Rivera takes on Yordenis Ugas in a make-or-break crossroads bout.

Rivera (34-14-3, 24KO) came in at 140.2 lb for his fourth straight fight as a super lightweight after having spent nearly a decade at welterweight. Ugas (12-1, 6KO) came in at 140.6 as he seeks a second straight win following an upset loss to Juan Garcia earlier this year on Showtime.

All six stateside editions of Boxeo Telemundo – including Friday’s telecast – have taken place at the Kissimmee Civic Center. The series rotates between Mexico and Florida every month.
