Zanfer Promotions Kicks Off Busy Month
Zanfer Promotions elite, the most important company in Latin America, came into action last weekend with the coronation of Luis 'Pantera' Nery and the rest will continue in the last quarter of 2020 world championships.
Next Saturday, October 3rd, in Las Vegas, Nevada, José "Chon" Zepeda (32-2-0, 25 ko's) will have a complicated feud against Russian Ivan Baranchyk (20-1-0, 13 ko's), in a world-stage duel that is practically a knockout fight. Zepeda's two defeats have been playing world championships, as has the only setback in Baranchyik's record.
"Chon" Zepeda is second-placed CMB Superlight and third OMB, the "Beast" Baranchyk is sixth-placed CMB Superlight and fourth FIB.
Friday, October 9, in the bubble of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the Mexican Emanuel "Vaquero" Navarrete (32-1-0, 28 ko's) will seek his second world championship in different divisions, this time the OMB Feather, when facing the undefeated Californian Rubén Villa (18-0-0, 5 ko's), who is the current international champion.
Navarrete was world champion Feather OMB from December 2018 to February of this year, making five defenses of his scepter. Villa, for his part, had more than 100 victories in amateur boxing and was a substitute fighter for the U.S. Olympic team for the 2016 Rio Olympics. In May 2019 he won the WBA International Feather Championship, which he has defended twice.
The WBA Feather World Championship is vacant, after Shakur Stevenson resigned from the title to fight in Super Featherweight.
On Friday the 23rd, at the Aztec TV studios in CdMx, a performance of three world championship fights will be held, in which Juan Francisco "Gallo" Estrada (40-3-0, 27 ko's) will defend for the second time his World Championship Supermosca CMB against Carlos "Príncipe" Cuadras (39-3-1, 27 ko's), in a rematch duel between Mexicans. Estrada beat Cuadras by unanimous decision (by a point of difference on the cards of the three judges, 114-113) in September 2017, in what was one of the best fights of that year.
Román "Chocolatito" González (49-2-0, 41 ko's) will make the first defense of the World Supermosca AMB championship against Mexico's Israel "Jiga" González (25-3-0, 11 ko's), while Julio César "Rey" Martínez (16-1-0, 12 ko's) will present for the second time his CMB world title of weight Mosca, against Maximino "Max" Flores (25-4-2, 17 ko's) in another world championship duel between Mexicans.
By October 30, undefeated Tijuan Jaime Munguía (35-0-0, 28 ko's) will face North American champion and Bahamas native Tureano Johnson (21-2-1, 15 ko's), who was left with a triumph of taking the podium at the 2008 Beiging Olympics.
On this very evening, Elwin "Pulga" Soto (17-1-0, 12 ko's) will risk the WBA Minimosca World Championship for the second time against Nicaraguan Carlos Buitrago (32-5-1, 18 ko's).
