Former light flyweight world champion Pedro Guevara locks horns with Miguel Herrera tomorrow night as the headline attraction from Sinaloa, Mexico live and exclusive on ProBox TV.
Guevara (39-3-1, 22 KOs) is within touching distance of a second world title sitting at #2 in the WBC super flyweight rankings. However, he will have to overcome fellow Mexican Herrera on Wednesday Night Fights.
“I’m expecting a good fight from Herrera tomorrow.” Guevara said to ProBox TV. “I’m ranked at number 2 in the WBC, Juan Francisco Estrada is the champion, that is the fight I want. We did try to make a final eliminator with Roman Gonzalez for an eliminator fight because he is ranked at number 1. But his camp didn’t want them to fight me.”
Guevara boasts an impressive resume that has seen him dance with some of the very best in the lower weight divisions. He defeated Akira Yaegashi in Japan to win the 108 pound world title in 2014, going on to twice defend the belt before losing a close decision to Yu Kimura a year after becoming world champion. Guevara has shared the ring with the likes of John Riel Casimero and Kenshiro Teraji to make up an impressive body of work.
Herrera (22-5-5) comes into Guevara’s Sinaloa as the away fighter from Yucatan having foght the entirety of his 32 fight career in his native Mexico. His most notable victory in recent times was beating former IBO champion Maximino Flores over the 8 rounds distance in his homeland just under two years ago. The pair go 10 rounds tomorrow night.
