Pablo Cesar Cano vs. Ruslan Madiev, Golden Boy on ESPN, 9/13

On Thursday, Sept. 13, two days before the highly anticipated rematch between Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez and Kazakh wrecking ball Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, another battle between Mexico and Kazakhstan will take place in the super lightweight division as Pablo "El Demoledor" Cesar Cano (30-7-1, 21 KOs) faces Ruslan Madiev (12-0, 5 KOs) in the 10-round main event of the Sept. 13 edition of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.

Cano is a 28-year-old puncher who has faced many names in the 140 and 147-pound division. The native of Tlalnepantla, Mexico has taken on the likes of Sugar Shane Mosley, Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi, Ashley Theophane, and Mauricio "El Maestro" Herrera in his career. Cano's best victory was against Johan "El Terrible Perez, where he earned the interim WBA Super Lightweight Title. Cano is hungry to return to the top of the 140-pound rankings, but he'll have to get past a tough fight against Madiev to do so.
"I am very happy to be back in an important main event on ESPN," said Pablo Cesar Cano. "I'm going into this fight with hunger for the victory and a desire to vindicate myself against a good fighter like Ruslan Madiev. I have no doubts that our styles will mesh well to give a great fight."
