FIGUEROA TITLE DEFENSE OFF DUE TO HAND INJURY

0

LAS VEGAS: Unbeaten US fighter Omar Figueroa will not defend his World Boxing Council lightweight crown on Saturday after injuring his left hand during training, promoters announced on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). The bout was among three title fights scheduled for the undercard of Sunday’s non-title bout between Mexican super welterweights Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, 42-1-1 with 30 knockouts, and Alfredo Angulo, 22-3 with 18 knockouts. Figueroa, who suffered the injury on Friday, will not put his title on the line but his scheduled opponent, Canelo’s older brother Ricardo Alvarez, will face Mexico’s Sergio Thompson.
