“Nica” Concepción defends against Fontes

WBC Flyweight Silver Champion, Luis “El Nica” Concepcion (30-3, 22 KOs) risks his title against Mexican Carlos “El Divino” Fontes (17-1, 14 KOs) on Thursday, February 20 at Figali Plaza in Panama City, Panama. “It’s summer time and there are low possibilities of rain so we take the risk of presenting a boxing card outdoors by the Figali Convention Center where we have promoted years ago,” said Rogelio Espiño, President of Promociones del Istmo, during a press conference held at the Fantastic Casino Dorado.

If Concepcion defends successfully, his next fight could be against regular WBC Champion Akira Yaegashi from Japan. “We have started a conversation with Japanese promoters and we also offered Concepcion for a previous fight in case they want to use him to help promoting the Yaegashi clash,” Espiño added.

World ranked minimumweight Leroy Estrada (11-1, 5 KOs) and undefeated Jr. Welter Alberto “Metralleta” Mosquera (20-0-2, 13 KOs) are also scheduled to be part of the February 20 show.
