Unlikely world champion, Gilberto Keb Baas (35-20-4, 22 KOs) will make the second defense of his WBC jr. flyweight title against former vanquisher, Adrian Hernandez (20-1-1, 12 KOs) April 30th at the newly-dedicated Coliseo Don King in Texcoco, Mexico.
Keb Baas won the title in October of last year by upsetting Omar Niño Romero via Majority decision. In his first title defense, the native of Hunucma, Yucatán, Mexico defeated Jose Antonio Aguirre via RTD 9.
Hernandez, whose only two career blemishes have come in the flyweight division, is the WBC’s #1 contender at jr. flyweight.
Keb Baas and Hernandez previously met in 2008, with Hernandez scoring a fourth round TKO.
