Calderon-Mayol II Sept. 12!

By Lee Bates

The highly anticipated rematch between unbeaten WBO light flyweight champion Ivan “Iron Boy” Calderon (32-0-1, 6 KOs) of Puerto Rico and 3 time world title challenger Rodel Mayol of the Phillipines (25-3-1, 19 KOs) is now official and will take place September 12. The event titled “Undefeated Champions”, will take place at the Coliseo Jose Miguel Agrelot in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico and is being promoted by PR Best Boxing (Ivan & Peter Rivera). Neither Calderon nor Mayol have fought since their bout this past June at the Madison Square Garden. The fight was halted after six rounds due to a cut suffered by Calderon as a result of an accidental headbutt in round four. The bout then went to the scorecards where one judge had it for Calderon, one had it for Mayol, and one had it even making the result a draw.

In the co-main event WBO super featherweight champion Ramon “Rocky” Martinez (22-0-1, 13 KOs) of Puerto Rico will make the first defense of his world title against former world title challenger Michael Lozada (31-5-1, 24 KOs) of Mexico. In his last bout Martinez defeated then champion Nicky Cook by 4th round TKO in Cook’s country of England this past March. Lozada enters the bout on a 2 bout win streak and in his previous title opportunity was defeated by unbeaten world champion Edwin Valero.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow and can be purchased at the the Ticket Pop or the box office at del Coliseo de Puerto Rico.
