GBP on ESPN Live Weigh-ins From Cancun – Golden Boy Promotions is back on ESPN this Thursday night with a full night of fights headlined by Martinez vs Martinez in the main event.
Puerto Rico’s undefeated Jose Martinez (19-0-1) takes on rugged Colombian Jesus Martinez (23-2) in a fight that is a step up for the Boriqua. He fought an 8-round bout on the undercard of Saul Alvarez and Miguel Cotto a few years back, but this is Jose Martinez’s first step into a main event and it is his first fight in Mexico. The more experienced Jesus Martinez is coming off a loss to Luis Nery and is looking to avoid a losing streak.
A trio of eight round bouts stand in support of the Martinez vs Martinez main event that feature talent from the GBP stable. Also on the card is GBP’s super middleweight women’s standout Maricela Cornejo. Cornejo has moved her record to 8-2 as she ventures for her second fight south of the border.
