WBC World Cup fights also off in Argentina

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz has reportedly postponed the October 25 edition of the WBC World Cup to be held in Cordoba, Argentina. The boxing card will go on, but only with local boxers. A new date will be announced for the previously scheduled WBC World Cup fights, which are welterweight Juan Carlos Abregu (16-0, 15 KOs) vs. Devis Caceres (14-2, 9 KOs) and lightweight Fernando Saucedo (50-5-3, 7 KOs) vs. Javier Prieto (23-7, 18 KOs).

This Friday’s card in Mexico City has already been postponed as a sign of respect and solidarity for the tournament’s founder, WBC President Jose Sulaiman, who is still recovering from his recent heart surgery.
