Alejandro Santiago 118, Willibaldo García 117 for WBC Int’l Belt today in Tijuana, Mexico

By Carlos Costa

Tough Mexican 🇲🇽 Alejandro Santiago, a former challenger of Filipino IBF World Champion 🇵🇭 Jerwin Ancajas, made weight for his today’s title battle.

WBC International Bantamweight Champion 🇲🇽 Alejandro Santiago (21-2-5, 11 KO’s) scaled in @ 118 pounds, while his compatriot challenger 🇲🇽 Willibaldo García (10-3-1, 5 KO’s) came-in @ 117 for their 10-rounder title clash today, Monday, September 21, in Tijuana, 🇲🇽 Mexico.

Both men looked focused and in awesome shape during the official weigh-in ceremony, ready for hot action. 🔥

The 24-year-old 🇲🇽 Santiago battled popular Pinoy 115-pounder 🇵🇭 “Pretty Boy” Jerwin Ancajas, 28, to a razor-thin split draw back in 2018.

Now as an 118-pounder, the Tijuana native aims to a shot at the WBC Bantamweight World Title.

A wiin today over García inches him closer to that golden dream.

Will the more-experienced 🇲🇽 Santiago emerge victorious today, or will glory-hungry García derail him?

The show — promoted by 🇲🇽 Rafael “Paco” Damian — will air live worldwide on streaming service Fite TV PPV ($ 6.99).
