With the cancellation of Saturday’s HBO card due to an injury to Robert Guerrero, U.S. fight fans will still have a chance to see live world championship boxing as the “Top Rank Live” series presents a world title doubleheader on FOX Deportes.
In the main event IBF 108lb champion Ulises “Archie” Solis (33-2-3, 21 KOs) is set to defend his world title against Filipino Jether Oliva (18-0-1, 11 KOs) at the Benito Juárez Auditorium on Saturday night in his native Guadalajara. “We are going to give a great show for my people of Guadalajara and I am glad fight here again after four years of not doing it,” said Solis. The unbeaten Oliva, from the Manny Pacquiao stable, is expected to arrive in town today. He is rated IBF #12 at mini-flyweight (105lb).
In the other world title clash, WBO strawweight king Raul “Rayito” Garcia (30-1-1, 18 KOs) takes on Moses Fuentes (13-1, 6 KOs).
