For prospect Xander Zayas, step one to a world title is as we speak on the Resorts World Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, in one other nice occasion from the Top Rank firm.
The undefeated 19-year-old boxer will face Florida-based Mexican, Elías Espada, in a battle that can see the 154 pound belt of NABO, a subsidiary of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), on the road.
Zayas, who has a file of 13-0 and 9 KOs, can be measured in ten rounds in opposition to Espada, who has a file of 22-4 and 15 beneath anesthesia, is 31 years previous and has by no means been knocked out.
“He’s a Mexican and like I said, I know him because he lives in South Florida. He’s a veteran who has never been knocked out and motivated. But we come ready to do the job, the corner’s advice and knowing when to box or counter-attack,” Zayas repeated. “All fights are important. This is much more important and we are 100 percent ready,” he stated.
The bout between Zayas and Espada can be a part of the occasion the place former light-weight champion Teofimo Lopez will battle his first 10-round junior welterweight battle in opposition to Pedro Campa.
López has a file of 16-1 and 12 KOs, whereas Campa has a file of 34-1-1 and 23 KOs.
