Munoz vs. Macedo & Sandoval vs. Pintos this Saturday, May 25th in Mexico
LOS ANGELES, May 24 – As the holiday weekend gets underway in the United States, there will be no rest for the warriors stepping into the ring at Domo De La Feria in Leon, Mexico, when Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions present a championship doubleheader featuring two of Mexico’s finest which will be televised on Televisa in Mexico and on FOX Deportes in the United States.
Muñoz vs. Macedo is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and sponsored by Corona. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. CT and the first fight begins at 6:00 p.m. CT. The Televisa broadcast begins at 10:30 p.m. CT and the FOX Deportes broadcast begins at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.
Unbeaten for nearly six years, Zulina “La Loba” Muñoz (37-1-2, 24 KO’s) is perhaps the most dominant world champion in the sport of women’s boxing today. Just 25-years-old, Muñoz held the WBC Silver title in two divisions before winning the WBC Super Flyweight World Championship in November of 2012 with a win over Maribel Ramirez. In March of this year, Muñoz successfully defended her title with a 10-round win over Japan’s Tenkai Tsunami and will look to extend her reign this Saturday.
30-year-old Soledad “La Negra” Macedo (11-8-1, 4 KO’s) is a fierce competitor hoping to prove that the third time is the charm for her in world title fights. Victorious in 10 of her last 14 bouts after a rough start to her pro career, Salto, Uruguay’s Macedo has fallen short in two previous challenges for a world championship, but with her style and determination, she is more than prepared to score the upset in Mexico.
One of Mexico’s top young boxers, 22-year-old Bruno Sandoval (13-0, 12 KO’s) lives up to his nickname “Tiburon” (shark) every time he steps into the ring with his quick charging and attacking style. On a nine fight knockout streak that includes six wins in two rounds or less, Sandoval has shown no mercy towards his opponents thus far and he’s not about to start now.
A veteran of 49 professional fights, 32-year-old Rafael Sosa Pintos (42-7, 17 KO’s) may be giving up youth and power to Sandoval, but the Salto, Uruguay native has the experience that a young fighter can’t hope to match, and he plans on showing off some tricks of the trade on Saturday night as he looks to keep his four fight winning streak going in hostile territory.
