With their fight about a week away at Fantasy Springs Casino in California on February 9th, Alberto Machado and Andrew Cancio fulfilled their public training before the press as a preview of what they will offer on fight day.

Machado, who will make the third defense of his WBA 130-pound crown, looked impeccable with great technique and speed under the direction of his legendary trainer Freddie Roach.

His opponent, Californian native Andrew Cancio, did not stay frozen before the cameras and gave a taste of his speed, leg movement, and powerful hands that will put in play to try to be crowned with his first world title.

The next meeting of both fighters is scheduled for the press conference and official weigh in to be held next week at the facilities of the hotel and casino Fantasy Springs in Indio, California, where Golden Boy Promotions will present the evening through DAZN.

Alberto Machado holds a record of 21 wins, no losses, and 17 wins via knockout. Meanwhile, Andrew Cancio is coming into the fight with a record of 19 wins, 4 losses, 2 draws, and 14 wins by knockout.
