Santa Cruz opponent named

Unbeaten in his last four fights, Mexico’s Victor “Nene” Zaleta (20-2-1, 10 KOs) will get the biggest opportunity of his career on November 10 when he faces unbeaten reigning world champion Leo “Terremoto” Santa Cruz (21-0-1, 12 KOs) for his IBF Bantamweight World Championship in a co-featured attraction to the Abner Mares vs. Anselmo Moreno WBC super bantamweight world championship at Staples Center in Los Angeles. “I am so happy to be defending my title in front of a hometown crowd at Staples Center,” said Santa Cruz. “I feel like I can really conquer anyone after my fight in September against Eric Morel, so Zaleta had better come prepared.”

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
