It cost me a lot to get to the United States, so this September 29, I will show where I come from and that I am the next world champion,” said Leonardo. 

The native of Durango, Mexico, José Antonio Meza, will return to action for the first time in 2023. His last bout was at the end of last year, where he lost by unanimous decision to American Dominic Valle (7-0).
