Venezuelan native Yoel Finol will make his professional debut next Saturday against fellow compatriot Luis Guerrero at the Sugar Baby Rojas stadium in Barranquilla, during the Explosive Test card in which Jeovanis Barraza and Gabriel Maestre will fight for the WBA-Fedebol belt of the 154 pound class in a stellar fight.

Although initially his rival was the veteran Anuar Salas, physical problems of the Colombian prevented him from being ready for the fight and now the silver medalist in Rio de Janeiro will be measured against a fellow native of El Vigia in a fight agreed upon in the bantamweight division.

The confrontation between Finol and Guerrero will be one of the four televised through ESPN KnockOut and will take place in six rounds.

Guerrero is 22 years old, as well as Finol, but he has eight professional battles, of which he has won five, lost two and has one draw, while he has managed to beat four of his opponents by way of knockout.
