Former two-division world champion Joan Guzman (33-1-1, 20 KOs) will be seeking redemption on Friday night when he fights Vicente “El Loco” Mosquera (32-2-1, 17 KOs) in Kissimmee, Florida. Guzman is coming off the only loss of his career last November. He was unable to continue due to a leg injury caused by what was ruled an unintentional foul, resulting in a split technical decision loss to Kjabib Allakhverdiev (18-0, 8 KOs) in a bout for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) super lightweight championship. Guzman-Mosquera will be for an interim version of the same belt, which Allakhverdiev still holds.
“I’m 100-percent recovered from my injury,” Guzman said from his Miami training camp. “I’m looking forward to showing the boxing world that I’m still a force to be reckoned with.” The twelve-rounder will be broadcast on “Boxeo Telemundo,” starting at 11:3PM ET.
