Former WBA Interim Super Lightweight Champion Pablo Cano is a stellar contender out of Tlalnepantla who has drawn raves as one of Mexico’s best hopes for future world title honors. Cano entered the professional ring early, making his debut at the age of 16 with a first round knockout of Miguel Angel Merino. Now an experienced battler who has taken on tough fighters like Shane Mosley, Paul “Magic Man” Malignaggi, Johan “El Terrible” Perez and Erik “El Terrible” Morales, Cano is ready to start off 2015 strong with a win against Tijuana’s Jorge “Pantera” Silva.
At just 22 years old, Jorge Silva is already a seasoned fighter. The Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico native, has faced tough challenges versus Yoshihiro Kamegai and Alfredo “Perro” Angulo and is looking to open 2015 with an impressive win in the welterweight division.
A 15-year professional and former flyweight world champion, Vic Darchinyan from Vanadzor, Armenia training out of Glendale, Calif. is looking to conquer the super bantamweight division. Facing Juan Jimenez is Darchinyan’s first step towards getting himself back on the road to a title after notching notable wins in the bantamweight and flyweight division.
Undefeated fighter Antonio Gutierrez has been quickly moving up the middleweight ladder towards a title shot. A professional since 2011, the Tijuana native’s only blemish on his record includes a draw against Victor Fonseca in 2012. Now a middleweight contender, Gutierrez is ready to take down an experienced Gilberto Flores and prove that he has what it takes to go the distance in 2015.
