Everything is ready for the WBA XXV KO Drugs Festival this Saturday at the Rafael Romero Bolivar Gym in Maracay, Venezuela. Venezuelan WBA super flyweight interim champion Liborio Soliss and WBA interim female featherweight beltholder and top model Ogleidis “La Niña” Suárez will be making the first defenses of their belts against Santiago Acosta and Pamela Benavidez. In addition, another model will see action in Venezuelan Alys “China” Sanchez and the prospect Ismael Sanchez Barroso.
The WBA, chaired by Gilberto Mendoza, recalled that the KO Drugs began in 1993 and is an event that is gaining much support for the youth and children of Latin America. The WBA is happy to return to Venezuela with the KO Drugs program.
