Rising Middleweight Star Elijah García Takes on Contender Kyrone Davis
Elijah Garcia is lacing up his gloves for a rumble in the middleweight jungle against Kyrone Davis, eyeing to carve his name deeper into the 160-pound lore with a victory that screams headline material on March 30.
Hailing from the heat of Phoenix, Arizona, Garcia (16-0, 13 KOs) bulldozed through 2023 with a trio of victories that left fans jaw-dropped, starting with a lights-out performance against the then-undefeated Amilcar Vidal. Riding this momentum, Garcia threw down on some of the year’s glitziest undercards, schooling Kevin Salgado before dispatching Armando Resendiz in bouts that had everyone glued to their screens. Turning pro in the whirlwind year of 2020, Garcia’s fists have been a force of nature, with seven of his last nine foes failing to hear the final bell.
At 29, Davis (18-3-1, 6 KOs) isn’t just another name on the card. After dusting off Cristian Fabian Rios and outmaneuvering Cruse Stewart in 2023, Davis is no stranger to the taste of victory. Having squared up with the likes of Anthony Dirrell and David Benavidez, Davis packs a punch and a half. Training under the watchful eye of Stephen “Breadman” Edwards in Philadelphia, this Wilmington, Delaware, native is all geared up to throw a wrench in Garcia’s plans.
Julio Cesar Martinez vs. Angelino Cordova: Flyweight Fisticuffs
WBC Flyweight World Champion Julio Cesar Martinez is set to defend his title against the formidable Angelino Cordova in a 12-round clash of titans, after visa snafus derailed their previous date in the ring.
Trained by the legendary Eddy Reynoso, Martinez (20-2, 15 KOs) grabbed the flyweight crown with a show-stopping stoppage of Cristofer Rosales in his U.S. debut back in December 2019. The 29-year-old Mexican warrior has since stood tall in five title defenses, leaving a trail of defeated foes in his wake. With a record marred only by a debut split-decision loss and a setback against Roman Gonzalez, Martinez is itching for more.
Cordova (18-0-1, 12 KOs), at 28, is no stranger to the limelight, having clinched a career-defining victory over ex-world champ Angel Acosta. Hailing from Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela, Cordova’s record is as clean as they come, save for a solitary draw early in his career. After making a splash in his U.S. debut against Axel Aragon Vega, Cordova is now gunning for Martinez’s crown.
