With the addition of top-rated junior flyweight contender Giovani Segura, it will now be five of Mexico’s biggest names in boxing converge for the first time, headlining the same boxing card when Top Rank presents “Latin Fury 8 — Tijuana Thunder,” broadcast Live on Pay-Per-View from Tijuana, Mexico on March 28. The five-bout pay-per-view extravaganza will feature undefeated super welterweight sensation Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., WBC super featherweight champion Humberto Soto, WBO junior bantamweight champion Fernando Montiel, two-time WBC lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo, and Segura in separate bouts. “From top to bottom, this is the greatest Mexican boxing event ever and I’m proud to be promoting it. Four title fights plus Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. versus Luciano Cuello in a battle of undefeated contenders in the main event,” said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum, chairman of Top Rank. Chavez Jr. (38-0-1, 29 KOs), of Culiacan, Mexico and son of the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez, will be making his 2009 debut. Now world-rated a career high No. 4 by the WBC, he’ll be risking everything when he rumbles with former WBO Latino junior middleweight champion and undefeated Luciano Cuello (23-0, 9 KOs), of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Latin Fury 8 pay-per-view telecast, beginning at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT, has a suggested retail price of $39.95.
