Sterling fighter from Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, Gilberto Parra Medina,, will have a tough test when he fights Nicaraguan Leyman Benavides contesting the WBC Silver light flyweight title of the World Boxing Council.
Recently and with dominance of Román “Chocolatito” González, the duels between Mexicans and Nicaraguans have resulted in real ring wars.
“Chocolatito” has starred in two memorable bouts against Carlos Cuadras and Juan Francisco Estrada. Years earlier, the legend of boxing from Nicaragua, Alexis Argüello, fought and won memorable matches against three Mexicans of the golden era, namely: Rubén “Púas” Olivares, Rafael “Bazooka” Limón and José Luis “Zurdo” Ramírez.
Now, it is the turn of the new generation of prospects to surge ahead, and relive this boxing rivalry.
