Mexicans Luis ‘Pantera’ Nery and Aaron Alameda will clash on Saturday in Uncasville, Connecticut, for the vacant World Boxing Council super bantamweight title.
Initially the fight between Nery and Alameda was going to take place on March 28 in Las Vegas, in what would be a WBC elimination match, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it had to be postponed.
At the most recent WBC Convention, it was reported that Rey Vargas was designated as champion in recess due to a severe injury to one of his legs, which is why the Nery vs. Alameda will be contesting the vacant super bantamweight title.
The WBC recognizes the professionalism of both fighters and their respective teams, because they complied with all the medical requirements, exams, pre-weigh-ins and safety protocols that we request.
One of the top priorities of the World Boxing Council is to protect the health of fighters.
We appreciate the hard work of William Boodhoo, responsible for following up on these requirements.
