Cermeño-Zambrano for WBA title in Peru?

By Gabriel F Cordero

A source has told that the current WBA interim world super bantamweight titleholder Nehomar Cermeño (22-5-1, 13 KOs) of Venezuela could defend his crown against unbeaten Peruvian challenger Carlos “Mina” Zambrano (23-0, 11 KOs) on July 19 at a venue to be determined in Peru. Zambrano is the grandson of the legendary local idol and former light heavyweight contender Mauro Mina, who defeated the great Bob Foster at the National Stadium in Lima before more than 40,000 fans back in 1963. Mina never did get a world title fight as he was forced to retire due to an eye injury in 1965 with a record of 52-3-3 with 25 KOs.
