News: Eros Correa, Omar Juarez, Kai Robin Havnaa, More

Undefeated super bantamweight prospect and rising star, Eros Correa (5-0, 5 KOs), returns to the ring this Saturday in Tijuana, Mexico. The 4-round bout is being promoted by GM3 Boxing Promotions and Gonzalez Boxing Promotions, and will take place at Cheer's Bar, in Tijuana.  Correa will face Jose Pech, a veteran of over 30 fights.
 
"I'm looking forward to this fight," said Eros Correa, who's guided by Cali Boxing Management. "My last fight in Tijuana was my toughest opponent to date so I'm not looking past Pech. Fighting in Mexico has been great for my career.  With each fight I feel I'm getting better and better. I'm gaining a lot of experience and my confidence is at an all time high. I'm also starting to build a fan base out there. I want to thank my team for all their hard work.  This Saturday I'll be going for another knockout."
 
Since signing with Cali Boxing Management last summer, Correa has been fighting on a consistent basis, going undefeated in four fights, all by knockout.  This will be Correa's second fight of 2019.  In his last bout he scored a fourth round TKO.
 
"We are happy with Eros' progress and we feel he's developing into a great fighter, one that we believe will make some serious noise in the super bantamweight division," said Andrew Bocanegra, of Cali Boxing Management. "After this bout we have plans to have him fight in the Bay Area, where all his family and friends will be in attendance.  He's an incredibly talented fighter to say the least."
 
"Eros' amateur pedigree being an alternate on the 2012 Olympic team is evident and its transitioning in the pros," said Jessie Sanchez, of Cali Boxing Management. "Fighting in Mexico has been tremendous for his development."

Welterweight prospect Omar "El Relampago" Juarez (1-0) of Brownsville, Texas, returns this Saturday, February 23, 2019 at the Minneapolis Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Juarez will square off against Phillip Percy in a four-round bout, on the undercard of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on FS1, headlined by Anthony "The Dog" Dirrell (32-1-1, 23 KOs) vs. Avni Yildirim (21-1, 12 KOs) for the vacant WBC super-middleweight title.
 
Juarez, a 19-year-old amateur standout has his sights set on becoming a star, as he enters his second pro fight working with PBC brand, the industry leader in the sport.
 
"I am excited to live out my dream, to be able to compete and have a chance to dominate at the highest levels," said Omar Juarez. "This next fight will be one step closer to becoming a world champion, as that is my dream. I am grateful to be on such a big card and the fans will see me perform at my highest level."
 
Juarez, who is also a motivational speaker when he is not boxing, is looking to have his action in the ring lead others to follow their dreams.
 
"Dreams do come true, and I'm living mine now," continued Juarez. "I can be living proof for people in my area that working hard can get you to any place in life you wish to go. This training camp has been great I know what I need to do to get the knockout. I believe with the right execution of my game plan, I will get my first career professional knockout."

Kent Erik Badstad (3-1, 1 KOs) has been sparring Kai Robin Havnaa ahead of his IBO International Cruiserweight title fight against Rad Rashid on March 2 in Arendal, and says the Norwegian star is in “the best shape ever.”
 
Badstad will be boxing on the undercard of Havnaa’s hometown show at the SØR Amfi, and following his first-round knockout victory over Gennadi Mentsikainen on February 2 in Vantaa, Finland, the 31 year-old from Trondheim takes on Hungary’s Istvan Orsos (16-48-3, 5 KOs).
 
“It was great sparring with Kai,” said Badstad. “I had a great time in Arendal with him and his uncle Erling. We had many good, tough rounds together that I think we can both be happy with going into our fights next Saturday.
 
"From my point of view, Kai is in the best shape ever. I've never seen him looking so good. He was really sharp in sparring and I know he’s going to be really fit and ready to win the IBO title against Rad Rashid.  
 
"My last fight against Gennadi Mentsikainen was a very important victory for me. It has given me a lot of confidence and a good feeling for my next fight, although I was hoping it would last a little longer.

"I'm really looking forward to boxing in in Arendal, and thankful to Team Sauerland for giving me the opportunity. I want to put on a good show for the fans, and do my part to contribute to a great event."

Kai Robin Havnaa tops the bill at the SØR Amfi in Arendal with a historic IBO International Cruiserweight title fight against Rad ‘Thunder’ Rashid.
 
Katharina Thanderz provides chief support with a super featherweight contest against Rachel Ball, Deniz Ilbay faces Jonathan Jose Eniz for the IBO Intercontinental title, Hadi Srour is back in the professional ring to meet Zoltan Szabo, and Kristiansand’s Jamshid Nazari takes on Ivica Gogosevic.

 Deniz Ilbay (21-1, 9 KOs) will face Jonathan Jose Eniz (23-11-1, 9 KOs) for the IBO Intercontinental Welterweight title on March 2 at SØR Amfi in Arendal.

The Cologne-boxer is back in action following a convincing victory over domestic rival Denis Krieger at the Schwalbe Arena in Gummersbach on December 1, and can now take the next steps towards a World title challenge as he meets 24 year-old Argentinian Eniz for the IBO Intercontinental strap.

“I would like to thank Team Sauerland for this opportunity,” he says. “My aim is to fight for a World title, and winning the IBO Intercontinental belt will bring my closer to this. I will not underestimate Eniz, but I'm confident I can win!"

Ilbay says he is looking forward to boxing in Arendal having witnessed the last Team Sauerland event at the SØR Amfi live on German TV: “I watched it on Sport1. It looked like a great show with an amazing atmosphere, and I'm really looking forward to boxing in front of the Norwegian fans."

Ilbay's IBO Intercontinental title fight is the second championship contest confirmed for Arendal with hometown hero Kai Robin Havnaa facing Rad 'Thunder' Rashid for the IBO International Cruiserweight title. 

"This is an exciting addition to what promises to be one of the biggest events in Norwegian boxing history," said promoter Nisse Sauerland. "Fans in Arendal can now look forward to a second title fight. There will be lots of good options out there for Deniz if he wins, and the World title will not be far away."
