This Saturday Michel Rivera and Frank Martin will step into the ring in a World Boxing Association (WBA) lightweight eliminator fight, which will take place at the Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas.
The bout is very special for boxing because it pits two young, talented and undefeated fighters, who are both looking for a title shot in the near future and are highly motivated to win.
La “Zarza” Rivera, from the Dominican Republic, is a fighter who stands out for his great technique and style but has a good punch and is very selective when it comes to using his power punches to hurt his opponents.
Martin has also been on the rise and is a very talented fighter who has passed all his tests so far. He now faces a big challenge but feels confident that he can overcome it and continue to rise.
Rivera has 24 wins, no losses and 14 knockouts, while Martin has 16 wins, 12 of them before the limit.
