Word is WBO/WBC bantamweight world champion Fernando Montiel will likely defend his belt against former WBA super flyweight champion Rafael ‘Torito’ Concepcion of Panama on July 17 in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, Mexico on a card presented by Zanfer Promotions. Montiel would be defending both his belts against Concepcion. Other sources indicate that Concepcion could have a tune-up fight in June at Chiriqui, Panama. This will Montiel’s first ring appearance since his spectacular KO victory over Japanese superstar Hozumi Hasewaga last April in Tokyo.
