Carlos Zambrano - Jose SanMartin Tale of the Tape
Carlos Zambrano will defend his interim WBA World featherweight title against Jose Sanmartin on Saturday, August 1.

Carlos Zambrano will defend his interim WBA World featherweight title against Jose Sanmartin over a scheduled 12 rounds at Coliseo Cerrado Mauro Mina in Chincha, Peru (Zambrano’s birthplace), on Saturday, August 1.

Thirty-one-year-old Zambrano won the vacant WBA Fedelatin featherweight title in March 2014 by knocking out Devis Perez in the 11th and the interim WBA World featherweight title in March of this year by decisioning Daniel Ramirez. Undefeated, “Mina” is a seven-year pro (25-0, 11 KOs). He’s ranked #1 by the WBA.

Sanmartin (17-1-1, 9 KOs) hasn’t lost since his first fight, decisioned by Hugo Berrio in September 2011. “El General” won the WBA Fedebol super bantamweight title in June 2014 by decisioning Zambrano victim, Devis Perez. He most recently fought this May, beating Felipe Almanza by third-round disqualification. His draw came in May 2012 against the ubiquitous Devis Perez. The upcoming bout will be his first outside his native Colombia. Sanmartin is ranked #15 by the WBA.
