Diego Magdaleno (20-0, 7KOs) will make his third NABF Super Featherweight title defense against Emmanuel Lucero (26-7-1, 14KOs) in a contest scheduled for ten rounds.
Magdaleno is a southpaw fighter ranked 12th by The Boxing Tribune and is currently undefeated. He holds a two inch height and reach advantage as well as an eight year age advantage over his opponent. Magdaleno is seeking a championship bout in the future. A win over Lucero will do nothing for Magdaleno in that regards but is likely meant to keep him busy while he waits for an opportunity to fight on a bigger stage.
Mexican fighter Lucero is coming off a TKO loss against Yuandale Evans in which he saw the canvas a total of four times. Lucero has faced other notable opponents, including Daniel Ponce De Leon, Jorge Diaz and Rocky Juarez, all of which resulted in losses.
Mercito Gesta (23-0-1, 12KOs) will face Ricardo Dominguez (34-7-2, 21KOs) in a Lightweight contest scheduled for ten rounds.
Gesta is a southpaw who hails from the Philippines. He comes into this bout undefeated. On September 17th of this year, Gesta came away with a UD win over Manuel Perez where he had to fight through a cut over his left eyebrow. Afterwards, Gesta took a week off to heal, then headed back to gym to prepare for this bout.
Dominguez is an orthodox fighter from Mexico. He has lost two of his last ten fights. Both losses came against titleholders, Humberto Soto and Miguel Vazquez, both of which he took the distance.
The show will take place Friday, November 11, 2011 and will also include undercard battles between welterweights Dennis Laurente and Ayi Bruce as well as middleweights Matt Korobov and Latif Mundy.
