Dejan Zlaticanin Talks To The Media – This Saturday night, January 28th on Showtime Boxing WBC lightweight world champion Dejan Zlaticanin defends his title against the challenge of undefeated Mikey Garcia.

The 28 year old Garcia is a former two division world champion who is fighting for the second time after a two year layoff.
The match is in support of Leo santa Cruz vs Carl Frampton’s rematch for the WBA world featherweight title. The first meeting between the two men last July was a “Fight of the Year” candidate. Both matches are expected to air on the Showtime broadcast, check your local listings for start times.
