Luis Concepcion Faces Giovanni Segura on December 17

By Hilmar Rojas

It's going to be bombs away in the main event of the "KO Drugs" in Panama on the 17th of December, when Luis "Nica" Concepcion (33-4, 24KOs) defends the WBA 115-pound interim-championship against Mexico's Giovanni Segura (32-4-1, 28KOs).

The fight will be held at the Arena Roberto Duran in Panama City, and the card is expected to be made up of eight or nine fights including two interim-world title fights and other regional World Boxing Association championship fights.

Speaking to the Panamanian media, Concepcion said he is aware of the commitment and the danger of Segura.

"I'll be better prepared and psyched, not like before when I fought Tyson Marquez. I will do my coach's work as I indicated. I will not rush to knock anyone out. I'll put my mind to the test in the ring.  He's a very dangerous opponent, so I'll be well prepared. I see this as a big challenge and I'll face it with great dedication. I'm going to win because I'll be well prepared."

The promoter Rogelio Espiño also said "We took a risky fight for Nica. [After this] we expect that in early 2016 a fight will be done with Japan's Kohei Kono."

Awesome match-up, only flaw is Segura's inactivity. A great way to end the year.

Segura's 15 month lay off is going to hurt him in this fight. Conception by KO.

Fun fight. Concepcion looked really strong vs Sanchez, Segura always makes a great fight

[QUOTE=Emi66;16220967]This is actually a nice fight for both fighters unless one of them is completely shot now.[/QUOTE] It's a puncher vs puncher fight. Should be fun while it lasts. EL Nica has a way of losing shootouts though. If Segura…
