Carlos Cañizales and Ganigan Lopez will step into the ring this Saturday to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental Americas flyweight championship at the Foro Centenario, in Coyoacan, Mexico City.

Producciones Deportivas’ main event will feature the Venezuelan and the Mexican in a clash of two experienced fighters looking for a shot at a world championship.

Cañizales, a former world light flyweight champion who lost his belt in May 2021 when he lost to Esteban Bermudez, returned to the ring in October and defeated German Valenzuela by unanimous decision. Now he will move up to 112 pounds to seek a new regional title and settle in the category.

As for Lopez, he is a veteran of a thousand battles who knows that this is one of his last chances. Lopez comes back from a close fight against Jose Soto due to a disqualification of the Colombian, but he intends to surprise the Venezuelan this weekend. 

“CCC”, as the Caracas native is nicknamed, has 23 career wins, with 1 loss and 1 draw, in addition to 17 knockouts. Lopez has 37 wins, 11 setbacks and 19 knockouts.
