Former world champion, Carlos Cañizales, will return to the ring next Friday to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Fedecaribe belt against Germán Valenzuela at the Foro Centenario, in Coyoacán, Mexico City, Mexico.
Cañizales returns from one of his toughest performances when he lost his world championship against Esteban Bermudez last May in Mexico DF. The Venezuelan will return to the same place to straighten his path against a young and motivated Valenzuela.
Nicknamed “CCC”, the South American is a gritty fighter who knows how to fight in the exchange and has a good boxing style. The 28-year-old gladiator is looking to get back on track and this fight seems like an ideal situation to do so.
Valenzuela, just 22 years old, has a good record and home advantage. The Sonora native has won three of his last four fights, is an aggressive fighter and is hungry for an upset.
The bout is the featured fight of the event organized by Promociones Deportivas. Cañizales has a record of 22 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw and 17 knockouts, while Valenzuela has a record of 16 wins, 2 losses and 12 knockouts.
