Santo Domingo began to warm the environment for the KO to Drugs event of the World Boxing Association (WBA) in which Jonathan “Maravilla” Alonso and Alberto “The Wasp” Puello will face each other in the main event of the evening for the interim title of the super lightweight class.
This Thursday the last press conference was held before the fight that will be held at the Carlos Teo Cruz Coliseum on Saturday and both fighters met face to face as a preamble to a great confrontation between Dominicans.
Representatives of the company Shuan Boxing, the national commissioner Franklin Nunez and, of course, the protagonists of the night, were on the podium together with Aurelio Fiengo on behalf of the WBA to speak with the press and offer their impressions about the great program that will take place in the capital of the Caribbean country.
“The KO to Drugs program has the objective of removing young people from these substances and is a very representative program of the WBA. We want to do this mainly in Latin American countries to develop talent. Please receive the greetings of our president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza and his apologies for not being here today,” said Fiengo.
Both Alonso and Puello declared themselves ready and eager to provide a great show. But above all, with the clear objective of conquering the black and gold belt in their own country and within the framework of such an important event.
This Friday, both will go up to the scales to mark the 140 pounds of the division and will be ready to jump into the ring on Saturday night with the live broadcast being through the www,wbaboxing.com portal
