Alberto Machado vs Andrew Cancio Weigh-In Video
Indio, California (February 9th, 2018)– Tonight at 9 pm ET on DAZN, it’s a four-fight card with two world titles on the line from Indio, California, with Alberto Machado and Rey Vargas headlining the action.
Andrew Machado (21-0, 17 KO) will defend his WBA “world” super featherweight title in the main event, taking on Andrew Cancio (19-4-2, 14 KO). Machado is the heavy favorite in this matchup, as Cancio has struggled in most of his tougher matchups in the past. But Cancio is a veteran of the Fantasy Springs casino, as this will be his 10th fight at the venue, so he’ll have something of a home-field advantage against the Puerto Rican titleholder.
Rey Vargas (32-0, 22 KO) is defending his WBA super bantamweight title against Franklin Manzanilla (18-4, 17 KO). Like the main event, there’s a clear favorite here, but Manzanilla has power and stopped former titleholder, Julio Ceja, last time out, so he might be the more dangerous challenger on paper.
Joseph Diaz Jr. (27-1, 14 KO) is also back in action tonight, moving up to 130 pounds for a 10-round bout with Charles Huerta (20-5, 12 KO), a solid veteran and a good first step in a new weight class. And lightweight prospect Oscar Duarte (15-0-1, 10 KO) will take on Adrian Estrella (28-3, 24 KO) in another 10-round bout.
