World Boxing Council flyweight champion, Julio César “Rey” Martínez, will defend his crown against Welshman Jay Harris, in Frisco, Texas, on February 29.
There’ll be live broadcast by DAZN in the United States and it`ll on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom.
“Rey” Martinez prepares in San Diego, California, in the gymnasium of “Canelo” Alvarez, guided by coach Mauricio Aceves and his representative Eddy Reynoso.
This will be the first defense of the world title he won by halting Nicaraguan Cristofer Rosales. Harris will be the third fight he has against a British rival.
Harris (17-0 9 KOs) is an unbeaten Welshman who comes from a great victory. The 29-year-old fighter traveled to Belfast last October and defeated three-time Olympian Paddy Barnes in four rounds, demonstrating that he is ready to fight for the WBC world title.
