Maldonado Jr vs Barroso Top GBP on ESPN Oct 13 – Oscar De La Hoya and his Golden Boy Promotions are back on ESPN this Friday night with Fidel Maldonado Jr vs Ismael Barroso in the main event spot.
The hard working Maldonado Jr won the vacant WBC FECARBOX title in his last outing with a controversial split decision win over Pablo Cesar Cano. Here, Maldonado Jr gets the former Interim world titlist in Barroso as he looks to bounce back from the first loss of his career this past May at the hands of Anthony Crolla.
The aforementioned Pablo Cesar Cano is also on the card as he faces Argentina’s experienced Marcelino Nicolas Lopez. Wins by Cano and Maldonado Jr would line-up a rematch, possibly before the end of 2017.
