Garay vs. Henry WBA Eliminator in co-feature
HOBOKEN, N.J. (Mar. 23, 2010) – Former WBA lightweight champion Jose “Jicaras” Alfaro has already defeated two world champions, Prawet Singwancha and DeMarcus Corley, and the Nicaraguan knockout specialist plans to add 3-division world champion Erik “El Terrible” Morales to his hit list Saturday night in “The Champion Returns” pay-per-view event, live from Monterrey, Mexico.
Alfaro (23-5, 20 KOs) takes on Morales (48-6, 34 KOs) in the 12-round main event for the vacant WBC Intercontinental welterweight crown.
“I do not mind that Morales is the favorite in this fight,” Alfaro said from Monterrey. “I understand but I had the best training camp of my life, in my country, and I’m going to win. My youth and strength will dominate this match. I know that I’m going to be taking the victory to Nicaragua.”
“The Champion Returns,” presented by KO Entertainment and Box Latino, is being distributed in the United States by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 9 PM/ET – 6 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, TVN and DISH Network, for a suggested retail price of only $29.95.
