MARTINEZ VS CALLEROS
Challenger to the WBC Fly world Belt Moisés “Taz” Calleros, could not mark the division’s limit and be given 2 hours to try again and could not reduce 5.4 pounds in that time.
Calleros (33-9-1, 17 KO’s) was selected as late-sub just last week because the original challenger, Max Flores, tested positive for Covid-19.
The world champion Julio César “Rey” Martínez (16-1, 12 KO’s) stepped on the scale at 111 lbs, one pound below the weight-class limit, sporting a well-worked physique.
Martínez showed confidence in his preparation, saying his classic phrase, “with everything, except fear.”
The show will be behind closed doors following prevention and health protocols from the health authorities of Ciudad de México, and guidelines from the World Boxing Council.
The event will be broadcast internationally on DAZN and on ESPN Knock Out.
May the Best Men Win!
