The World Boxing Association (WBA) “KO Drugs” festival will return next week in Panama City with Anselmo Moreno and Jezreel Corrales as the main protagonists of the event.

There will be two bouts, the first one will be female on Friday, March 11 at the Majestic Casino and on Saturday, March 12 there will be a male bout in which both Panamanians will feature the two main fights, to be held at the Roberto Durán Arena. 

Moreno will face Mexican Gustavo Piña in defense of his Fedelatin featherweight crown. The veteran local fighter has won four fights in a row and now wants to extend his streak in the main event.

Corrales, on the other hand, will have a challenge against the young and undefeated Mexican, Miguel Madueño. The showdown will be in the lightweight division and will be a great test for both fighters. 

In the women’s event, it has already been confirmed that Argentine Yésica Bopp will defend her light flyweight crown against Jessica Nery Plata, a fight of experienced fighters that will be the highlight of the card.

KO a las Drogas is an event that seeks to use boxing as a means to keep young people away from the wrong path and give them sports tools to help them become better people.
