Diego De La Hoya and Victor Morales will fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Intercontinental featherweight belt this Saturday at the College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.
The fight will be part of Golden Boy Promotions’ 10-round co-main event this weekend.
De La Hoya comes in with three straight victories and wants to keep the regional belt that will bring him closer to a better opportunity. It is worth remembering that he was in an eliminator fight to the world title in 2019 but lost to Ronny Rios, who later faced Murodjon Akhmadaliev for the crown.
On Morales’ side, he is an undefeated fighter looking to pull off an upset against a more experienced opponent like De la Hoya. The 25-year-old fighter will have his first opportunity for a regional belt and he will not miss it in this great event.
De La Hoya comes in with a record of 24 wins, 1 loss and 11 knockouts. Morales has 17 wins, no losses, 1 draw and 8 knockouts.
