WBC Continental Americas Super featherweight champion and boxing sensation Andy “El Tiburon” Vences will look to return July 7th at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA against a tough and rugged southpaw in Frank De Alba.
Vences, who is coming off a massive rating success in his last fight as his draw with Erick De Leon was one of the five most-watched bouts on any network and matched the audience of Deontay Wilder vs. Luis Ortiz. Needless to say, Vences’ is no longer a prospect, but now someone with a solid fanbase and numbers to prove it as he looks to make a statement against a tough fighter in Fresno, CA.
Vences will be on the undercard of WBC super lightweight Jose Ramirez’s first title defense against Danny O’Connor. The bout will be televised on ESPN and ESPN+.
