Hernandez, with a record that echoes the thunder of his fists (34-2, 31 KOs), looks to rebound from a recent setback, aiming to weave his way back to the pinnacle of boxing glory. The memory of an electrifying battle with O’Shaquie Foster still fresh, where a sudden twist in the final rounds saw him lose grip on victory, Hernandez is fired up, promising a revival in his upcoming fight. “Rocky Never Left,” he declares, his resolve unshaken.

Facing him across the ring, Lugo (27-2-1, 18 KOs) is no mere stepping stone. At 29, this fight is the crescendo of his career, a chance to upset the scales and etch his name among the division’s elite. With the stakes towering high, Lugo vows to turn their clash into an all-out Mexican war.

In the co-main event, the air is thick with anticipation as Cruz (17-2, 3 KOs) gears up to defend her WBA title. Fresh off a victory that crowned her a champion across two divisions, Cruz is hungry for more, her eyes set on unifying the division. Facing her is Romero (13-0-1, 7 KOs), whose previous encounter with destiny was marred by misfortune.

Eddie Hearn, the man orchestrating this spectacle, teases the promise of unforgettable clashes. From the resilience of ‘Rocky’ to the explosive potential of Cruz vs. Romero, Aguascalientes is the battleground where legends will rise.
