This Saturday, July 27th, Jonathan Alonso (18-0, 7KO’s) will face fellow undefeated Alberto Puello (16-0, 9KO’s) for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim Super Lightweight World Title.
Alonso has great amateur experience, consisting of 112 fights, amateur World Championships, and Olympic experience. Not to mention; he is undefeated in the professional ranks.
Alonso is greatly looking forward to fighting in his native Dominican Republic again, saying “It is my third fight in the Dominican Republic and without a doubt the most important in my professional career. I was born there and I will never forget where I come from, I am fully happy and it is very special for me to be there.”
Alonso is also happy to be fighting for a WBA interim title, as he supports the organization outside the ring as well “It is all a plus. That it is in the Dominican Republic, and that it is for WBA Interim World Title, that it is within the framework of a prestigious KO to Drugs campaign.”
Puello, on the other hand, will be entering the fight with an also unblemished professional record having last fought in November of 2018 when he stopped David Bency. Puello is the WBA Fedelatin Super Lightweight Champion and is no slouch himself, as he is expected to put up a great fight as he looks to overcome Alonso and make a further name for himself.
