Fierro vs Estela Lightweight Clash Marks Matchoom’s First 2023 Mexico Card
Angel Fierro (20-1-2, 16KOs) defends his WBO NABO Lightweight title against Uruguay’s once-beaten Eduardo Estela (14-1, 9KO’s) in what promises to be an explosive main event. The WBO #5 rated Fierro is closing in on a coveted World title shot in 2023, but he must first get by the very dangerous Estela, who is coming off a career best win in November over previously undefeated Ruben Torres. Estela, who is promoted by former great Marcos Maidana who will be attendance on fight night, has a lone loss as a pro against rising Mexican powerhouse Mauricio Lara back in 2019.
Eduardo Nunez will provide the co-main event action as he meets unbeaten Jesus Ceyca over ten rounds at Super-Featherweight. KO merchant ‘Sugar’ Nunez (23-1 23 KOs) has won all of his bouts inside the distance, and the 25 year old comes into the bout on the back of a tenth round stoppage win in Culiacan in September, his only fight of 2022. The Los Mochis man will be eager to keep his streak going on March 4, but will need to take the ‘0’ of local man Ceyca (17-0 8 KOs) to do so, who will be on home turf for his first action in 2023 and in his first ten round contest.
Elsewhere on the card, 2016 Mexican Olympian Misael Rodriguez (12-0, 7KO’s) will take on Aaron Guerrero (10-1-1 6 KOs) over eight rounds at Middleweight, Alejandro Young (9-0) and Francisco Pina (5-0) battle over 8 Rounds in a clash of unbeaten Featherweight and in the opener new Matchroom signing Criztec Bazaldua makes his professional debut over four rounds at Lightweight against Jose Bustamante (1-0).
