According to lightweight contender William Zepeda, he is preparing for what will be his first in-ring performance of 2023, when he expects to see action in the boxing capital of the world, Las Vegas, as part of the undercard to the grudge match showdown between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia, which headlines a Showtime Pay-Per-View card.
The event takes place on April 22 at the T-Mobile Arena.
Zepeda revealed that he's slated to face Panamanian fighter Jaime Arboleda (19-2, 14 KOs), who has punching power and is riding a three fight win streak.
“This is the ideal opportunity to show the world who William Zepeda is,” said Zepeda, who will be fighting for the fifth time on US soil.
Zepeda has an undefeated pro record of 27 victories, with 14 of these wins coming by way of knockout. In his last two fights, the tough boxer defeated former world champions Rene Alvarado and Joseph Diaz.
The current WBA Continental champion is in the final stretch of his preparation in the mountains of Mexico, specifically in the municipality of Jiquipilco, where he is supervised and supported by his team, made up of Cuban coach Carlos Duarte, Jay "Panda” Najar, trainer and cutman, as well as his representative Jaime Picos.
