Antonio Margarito relies so much on his talent and preparation, and has such a winning mentality, that he believes that his fight against Carson Jones will bring him to another world championship, because his intention is not only to win, but to do it in a way that is overwhelming.
Margarito (40-8-0, 27 KO's) showed up on Friday at a press conference in Chihuahua, where he announced that on September 2 at the ¨Mueluel Bernardo Aguirres¨ Gym of the Chihuahua capital, he will face American Carson Jones (40-11-3, 30 KO's).
The card will be promoted by Zanfer Promotions with the support of the Municipality of Chihuahua, and televised by Azteca.
At the official announcement, a large number of enthusiastic fans gathered in the Plaza de Armas of Chihuahua.
In his most recent match, Margarito defeated Ramón "Inocente" Álvarez by decision. Jones, meanwhile, went to England to knock out undefeated Ben Hall in a battle for the International Silver championship of the WBC at junior middleweight.
The municipal president of Chihuahua said that they expect an attendance of 10 thousand spectators among which more than half, that is to say, more than 5 thousand will obtain their access without cost as part of the commitment of the Municipal Government to provide quality spectacles for all the people of the city.
The decision to bring a new boxing match was made following the success of the confrontation between Omar Chávez and Ramón "Inocente" Álvarez - the brothers of Julio César Chávez and Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez respectively - for which a full arena was registered And hundreds of people had no opportunity to attend because of the large influx.
