Corrales vs Machado Headline HBO’s Saturday Offering – HBO Boxing is back in upstate New York at the Turning Stone Casino with a full night of boxing topped by WBA “Super World” 130-pound champion Jezreel Corrales defending his title against undefeated Alberto Machado.
For Corrales, it will be the third defense of the belt he won back in April of 2016 when he knocked out longtime champion Takashi Uchiyama of Japan in Tokyo while the 27 year old Machado is in his first world title fight.
In support is a middleweight bout pitting undefeated fighters as Alantez Fox faces Demetrius Andrade. Andrade won the WBA world title at super welterweight in his last outing when he beat Jack Culcay in Germany back in March. To greet him on his move up to middleweight is Fox, who at 6 foot 5 inches tall is one of the most unorthodox fighters you will see at 160 pounds.
