Undefeated World Boxing Council super bantamweight champion Luis ‘Pantera’ Nery (31-0, 24 KO’s), seeks to unify the crown by defeating other divisional champions.
Fernando Beltrán, leader of Zanfer Promotions, commented in an interview that his company is planning a fight for Nery against the undefeated Brandon Figueroa (20-0-1, 16 KO’s), the WBA champion.
“Nery will be back in the ring very soon. Only some minor details to iron out, but what is intended, is a unification against Brandon Figueroa. We think it will be a great fight and we have a chance to come out with our hands up. It would be very interesting if his first defense was a unification, “said Beltrán.
Nery is coming off winning his second world title in a different division, defeating previously unbeaten Aaron Alameda (25-1, 13 KO’s) in a tough fight on September 26.
