The World Boxing Council (WBC) has designated Cancun, Mexico, as the venue for the fight for the super featherweight world title held by the American O’Shaquie Foster.
The American has held the belt since February of this year and his opponent will be a Mexican, Eduardo Hernández, who has been at a superlative level in his last fights.
‘Rocky’ Hernandez is only 25 years old and although he has one loss in his career, he has a KO streak that made him worthy of a fight against Foster in his homeland, which could be an advantage or an extra pressure.
In addition, the Mexican will be able to collect a national revenge, since the American won his title by defeating Rey Vargas in a tight fight, who was undefeated until that bout took place in San Antonio, Texas.
The organization has already indicated that a full house is expected for the fight, since it has been considered a “milestone”, according to organizer Pepe Gomez, from Cancun Boxing.
Saturday, October 28 at 9:00 pm ET at the Polideportivo Benito Juárez, Cancún, México
11:00 PM ET
O’Shaquie Foster -185
