Unbeaten Calderon (32-0-1 6 KO’s), from Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, will face Mayol (25-3-1, 19 KO’s) in a rematch of their June 13 fight, when after an accidental head-butt to the head of Calderon, the bout was stopped and ended in a technical draw after six rounds..
“I made many mistakes in the other fight when I wanted to impress the fans there and watching on television, but this time I’m going to do my job,” Calderon said at today’s press conference today in San Juan. “My boxing style is to hit and not get hit.”
Mayol, who came to Puerto Rico with his manager Michael Konez, remarked, “I am training very hard for this fight because I want the title and I know that I will win the title on September 12.”
Meanwhile, Martinez (22-0-1, 13 KO’s) will defend his WBO 130-pounds title versus an opponent that will be announced in the next days.
