#14 WBO ranked super flyweight David “El Duro” Carmona of Mexico City, Mexico (15-1-4, 8 KOs)( will look to successfully defend his WBO Youth title tonight against his unbeaten countryman Antonio “El Tostado” Tostado (11-0, 5 KOs). The main event will take place at the Jose Cuervo Salon, Polanco in the Distrito Federal, Mexico with Tuto Zabala’s Jr. All Star Boxing, Inc. in association with Ricardo Maldonado, Jr., Producciones Deportivas and RB Producciones promoting. Telemundo Network will televise the main event live at 11:35 PM. The winner of the bout is rumored to possibly face the winner of the October 4th Telemundo main event featuring super flyweight unbeatens Matthew Villanueva versus Daniel Lozano.
In your last bout, a rematch against your countryman Danny Flores, you looked to clear up any doubts on your close split decision win over him just a few months prior. Unfortunately due to a cut suffered by Flores, the bout ended in a technical draw. How frustrating was that for you
The fight was just getting good when the cut happened. It’s a part of boxing and you just have to move on and not dwell on it.
You have not fought in the U.S. yet but since you have headlined on Telemundo previously so U.S. audiences have gotten a chance to see you. Will you be heading to the U.S. in the future?
I’m very appreciative to Telemundo for the opportunities they have given me to get exposure in both Latin America and the U.S. Hopefully with continued success I’ll fight in the U.S. soon.
There has been talk that should you win your upcoming bout that you could face the winner of the October 4th Telemundo main event featuring super flyweight unbeatens Matthew Villanueva versus Daniel Lozano. Have you heard anything about that?
Should that be the case, then that would be another good opportunity for me to show I’m ready to take my career to another level but again I have to win my bout with Tostado first.
You’re already world title eligible right now in the WBO rankings. How long realistically before you could fight for a world title?
I will leave that decision to my promotional team. Right now my focus is on beating Tostado.
