Reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) intercontinental super bantamweight champion Prince Albert Pagara will be facing the toughest fight of his boxing career when he battles Mexican Cesar Juarez on July 9 at the San Mateo Event Center in California.
Pagara’s unbeaten record of 26 fights with 18 knockouts will be tested against the 24-year-old Juarez (17-5 win-loss record with 13 knockouts) who almost beat reigning WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire Jr. in December 11 last year, in Puerto Rico. Donaire won via unanimous decision to recapture the WBO belt.
Pagara, 22, left the country on Monday to start his eight-week training at the Wildcard gym in Los Angeles, California under the supervision of Freddie Roach.
Pagara defeated Mexican Yesner Talavera via unanimous decision in Cebu City in February 7, this year.
