The hard hitting Antonio “Cañas” Lozada Jr. (26-1, 22KOs) will return on Monday, July 2nd, in the main event as he faces Edgar “Finito” Llanes (11-2, 7KOs) in either Tijuana or Rosarito, Mexico, in a light welterweight ten round battle. The six foot tall Lozada will have a dangerous opponent in Llanes who no doubt will complicate matters from the opening bell. Lozada has been training since the month of May. The event will be presented by Baja Boxing.
“For me it is a privilege to be the main event once again,” Lozada Jr. stated. “It is a very important step for me versus a tough opponent who will be looking for the best win of his career.”
Lozada Jr. will look to earn his second win of the year. In his first back in March, “Cañas” went ten rounds versus Daniel Valenzuela in the semi-main event to his gym partner Antnonio DeMarco’s first defense of the WBC lightweight title against “Mickey” Roman in Los Mochis, Mexico.
“Every win is important since it gets you closer to the goal every fighter has since they make their pro debut,” the twenty-two year old Lozada Jr. explained. “All of us want to be world champions but unfortunately only a handful reach their dream. I hope to be one of the chosen one and finish off the year undefeated so that in 2013 I can go after a belt for Tijuana and all of Mexico.”
Also featured on the card will be Juan Pablo “CheChe” Lopez (21-1, 18KOs) against Cesar “Dollar” Chavez (20-2, 9KOs) in the light welterweight semi-main bout while super featherweight KO artist Adrian Estrella (6-0, 6KOs) of Monterrey, Mexico, goes after Genaro Camargo (39-12, 31KOs). Also showcased on the card will be Erik Robles (2-0, 2KOs) and Roberto “Rifle” Ramirez (1-0, 1KO).
