Concepcion vs Leyva

By Alexey Sukachev

It looks like the WBA interim flyweight beltholder Luis Concepcion (18-1, 13 KOs) of Panama will make the first defense of his title against Mexican veteran and former IBF strawweight champion Roberto Carlos Leyva (26-9-1, 21 KOs) on November 19 at Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City. Shorty (5’2”) power puncher Concepcion acquired his belt this September with a late stoppage of another Mexican Omar Salado. Leyva is just 5-8 since losing his belt in 2002.
