William Zepeda and Golden Boy Announce Contract Extension

William Zepeda has extended his promotional agreement with Golden Boy Promotions.

In his past fight, in March, the Mexican stopped Britain’s Maxi Hughes, and he is expected to challenge for a version of the world lightweight title in 2024. He next fights Giovanni Cabrera on July 6 at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California.

“I feel very happy and very grateful to Golden Boy for giving our team a boost and giving us the opportunity to continue to be a part of such a great company,” said “El Camaron”, 28. “My commitment and professionalism have kept the doors open for this contract extension. Together with my team and Golden Boy, we are lobbying for those great fights and a world championship in the near future.”

Oscar De La Hoya, the chairman and chief executive of Golden Boy, was once a world lightweight champion, and he said: “I am excited to announce that we have extended our agreement with William Zepeda. Golden Boy happily reaffirms our commitment to him and his career goals. 

“There is no one more exciting or dangerous in the lightweight division than Zepeda. Every time out, he is a threat to either break a Compubox record or take out an opponent in the first round, or both.”
