WBC webcast Saturday will present a live boxing webcast – free of charge – from Auditorio Plaza Condesa in Mexico City on Saturday, March 13, at 9:00 P.M. (21:00 hrs) Central Standard Time. Please note: the webcast is not available in Mexico. In the main event – a nontitle fight scheduled for 10 rounds – WBC Latino flyweight champion Jesus “Destroyer” Jimenez, 27-5 with 20 knockouts, of Guadalajara, will face Paulino “El Gato” Villalobos, 27-41-2 with 16 knockouts, of Veracruz. The fight will be televised live in Mexico on Cadena 3: Channel 28.

Jimenez, a 25 year-old lefthander, has now won 14 fights in a row, 13 by knockout, since his last loss in August, 2006. His other four losses came in his first seven fights. Ranked No. 2 by the WBC at 112 pounds, he won the WBC Latino title in June, 2008, and has made two successful title defenses. He is also a former Mexican national flyweight champion with three successful title defenses.

Villalobos, now 38 years old, is a professional veteran of 21 years and 70 fights. He is a veteran “road warrior” and underdog, as he is in this fight. But he is capable of upsetting the favorite on any given night: he has recent wins against previously undefeated prospects Jesus Ruiz – 12-0-2 going into their fight, and Jonas Hernandez – 5-0 going into their fight. Villalobos has fought top opposition throughout his career and has a 10-round draw to his credit, as well as a 10-round decision loss, against Fernando Montiel.
