Unbeaten Ukrainian WBA Flyweight World champion Artem Dalakian (20-0, 14 KO’s) can’t wait to climb the ring for the 5th defense of his black ‘n golden belt against Panamanian slugger former champion Luis “El Nica” Concepción (39-8, 28 KO’s), a clash set for Saturday, November 20, in Kiev, Ukraine.
The rumble will unfold at the plush ACCO International Center in a production of Union Boxing Promotion, the fighting outfit that won the bidding to organize the exciting battle for boxing fans in Ukraine.
Dalakian – the tough Ukrainian of Armanian descent – claimed his WBA 112-pound world title by soundly defeating Filipino Brian Viloria in February of 2018 at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
After that, the undefeated Dalakian, 34, has made 4 successful title defenses, including a devastating chapter 8 TKO victory over Thai warrior Sirichai Thaiyen (59-4, 40 KO’s).
But the challenger, Luis “El Nica” Concepción wants the win beyond words.
The battle-tested relentless coming-forward fighter is former 2-division world champion with TNT power in his fists.
Because of that, the experienced Panamanian is now #1 in the WBA Flyweight rankings as well as mandatory contender; and fans wondering who will pull off the win, the hometown defending world champion... or the visiting hard-hitting warrior?
Dalakian vs Concepcion is set to thrill fans November 20 in Ukraine, the land of boxing superstars Vasiliy Lomachenko and Oleksandr Usyk.
May the Best Man Win..!! #dalakianconcepcion
