One of the most interesting bouts of the World Boxing Association (WBA) Argentina’s KO a las Drogas, which will take place between June 9 and 10, will be that of Venezuelan Carlos Cañizales and Cuban Daniel Matellon, who will have an eliminator bout at light flyweight.
Both the Venezuelan and the Cuban were ordered to fight months ago by the championships committee and now they will have the opportunity to carry out this interesting fight in the framework of the great WBA festival.
Cañizales, a former world champion, has three consecutive victories after he lost the belt in 2021. Since then he has been on the rebound with several important victories that have helped him return to this opportunity for a knockout.
His opponent will be Matellon, an undefeated veteran who has also been making merit for this fight and has a clear career goal of fighting for a world title in the short term. To get it, he will need a win over Cañizales and he has shown confidence to get it.
Cañizales comes in with a record of 25 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw with 19 knockouts, while Matellon has 13 wins, no losses, 2 draws and 7 knockouts.
