WBC Super Flyweight champion Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez (15-0, 10 KOs) plans to live up to the hype created after his sensational performance against Carlos Cuadras.
Boxing’s youngest current world champion makes first defence title against two-time Chocolatito Gonzalez conqueror Srisaket Sor Rungvisai on Saturday night, headlining Eddie Hearn’s bumper card in San Antonio.
The co-feature bout between Martinez and Arroyo is off after WBC flyweight champion Julio Cesar Martinez was forced to withdraw from the rematch against McWilliams Arroyo due to illness.
WBC president Mauricio Sulaimán confirmed the bout was off via Twitter:
We deep regret the @WBCBoxing confirms that WBC flyweight champion Julio Cesar Martinez has pulled out of the fight vs interim WBC champion McWilliams Arroyo. Exact details are yet to be disclosed . WBC will be addressing this terrible situation
— Mauricio Sulaiman (@wbcmoro) June 23, 2022
Incredibly, there are still two more world title fights on the card. Murodjon Akhmadaliev defends his IBF and WBA Super Bantamweight titles against Ronny Rios, and Jessica McCaskill puts her four welterweight title belts on the line when she goes up against Alma Ibarra.
