Shabaz Masoud and Jose Sanmartin will fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Intercontinental super bantamweight belt when they step into the ring at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, United Kingdom, this Saturday.
The British and Colombian will have one of the most interesting fights of the Matchroom Boxing event, which will feature Jack Catterall and Jorge Linares as the main event for the WBA Intercontinental Super Lightweight belt.
Masoud comes from defeating and undefeated Jack Bateson in November 2022 and that has given him a great dimension to his career. At 27 years of age, he knows he is facing a big opportunity and needs to make a good impression to keep earning good opportunities.
Sanmartin is a 31-year-old veteran who is used to fighting away from home and always puts up great fights. He has recently faced top-notch opponents and has a great record to back him up for an away win.
The home fighter is undefeated in 11 fights, 4 of them won by knockout. On the other hand, the South American has 34 wins, 7 losses, 1 draw and 21 knockouts.
