In the semi main event, David Lopez (38-12, 23KO) of Nogales, MX, goes against Cesar Alberto Leiva (40-11, 20KO) of Mar de Plata, Argentina, for the also vacant IBA middlweight strap. The fight card will take place at the Poliforum Zamna of Merida, Yucatan. “We have two exciting bouts for titles and I sure it will be a great night of boxing,” Jorge Marron, the attending IBA supervisor, stated. “Soon we will have two new champions that I am sure will reprensent the association with honor.”
