Saturday: Yuliahn Luna-Mayeli Flores Bantamweight World Title Bout Headlines Mexico Fight Night Streaming LIVE on ESPN+

PhilBoxing.com


ESPN+ stream will begin at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT

(March 31, 2022) — WBC female bantamweight world champion Yuliahn "Cobrita" Luna will make her first world title defense against undefeated contender Mayeli Flores this Saturday, April 2 at BUAP Arena in Puebla, Mexico.

Luna-Flores and select undercard bouts will stream live and exclusively in the United States on ESPN+ starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

Luna (22-3-1, 4 KOs) had a brief run as IBF junior featherweight world champion from 2014-2015 and ultimately settled at bantamweight, where she received a shot at long-reigning champion Mariana Juarez in October 2020. She defeated Juarez in dominant fashion and then notched a pair of one-sided wins in non-title bouts in 2021. Flores (8-0-1, 3 KOs) has won four straight bouts since the lone draw on her ledger.

In undercard action on ESPN+:

• Lightweight contender Oscar Duarte (21-1-1, 16 KOs), who is riding a string of six straight knockouts since a split decision loss to Adrian Estrella, will fight Argentina native Fernando Cancino (11-9-1, 3 KOs) in a 10-rounder. Cancino, a seven-year pro, has never been knocked out.

• In an eight-round junior featherweight bout, Mexico City-born knockout artist Bryan Mercado (20-1, 15 KOs) makes his 2022 debut versus Pedro Tut (21-1, 6 KOs), winner of 16 straight fights.

• The ESPN+ stream will begin with a six-round featherweight tilt, as 21-year-old phenom Edgar Gonzalez (8-0, 4 KOs) puts his unbeaten record on the line against Agustin Perez (6-3-1, 3 KOs).
