Garcia-Perez rematch Saturday

WBA female bantamweight champion Irma “Torbellino” Garcia (6-0-1, 1 KO) will look to repeat her victory over former champ Janeth Perez (17-1-2, 4 KOs) at the El Chamizal Sport Center in Zamora, Michoacan, Mexico on Saturday night. Irma shocked the world by defeating then unbeaten Janeth Perez to capture the WBA title in January.

The co-feature will be a 12-round fight between Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez (19-2-3, 12 KOs) and Carlos Valdez (12-5, 9 KOs) for Alvarez’s WBC Latino super lightweight title. Alvarez is the older brother of WBC super welterweight world champion Canelo Alvarez.

The card will be televised on FOX Deportes in the United States and Televisa in Mexico.
