Jonathan Gonzalez vs. Leyman Benavides
Set for October 27, this fight will be for the WBO light flyweight title. Jonathan Gonzalez (27-3-1, 14 KOs, 1 NC), who won the belt against Elwin Soto in 2021, will be defending it for the third time. Leyman Benavides (20-6-1, 3 KOs) is a Nicaraguan with only two fights in the last three years.
The fight will take place at the Alexis Arguello Sports Complex in Managua, Nicaragua. Viewers in the United States can watch the bout on ESPN+. Those in Latin America can do so with ESPN Deportes.
Amanda Serrano vs. Danila Ramos
Also on October 27 is a clash between Amanda Serrano (45-2-1, 30 KOs) and Danila Ramos (12-2, 1 KO) at the Caribe Royal Resort in Orlando, Florida. What is unique about this fight is that it will be contested over 12 three-minute rounds. Generally, women’s title bouts are ten rounds at two minutes per round. The fight will have Serrano’s WBO, IBF, and WBA featherweight belts on the line. Although Serrano is the undisputed champion at featherweight, her WBC title will not be on the line. This is due to the organization’s opposition to having women fight 12 three-minute rounds. The other three organizations, however, have approved of the matchup.
Serrano-Ramos will take place after the third edition of the Most Valuable Prospects series. Fight fans can catch the action live on DAZN around the world.
O’Shaquie Foster vs. Eduardo Hernández
On October 28, WBC super featherweight champion O’Shaquie Foster (20-2, 11 KOs) faces Eduardo Hernández (34-1, 31 KOs). The fight will take place at the Poliforum Benito Juarez in Cancun, México. DAZN is set to broadcast the event live around the world. For Foster, this represents his first title defense since claiming the belt against Rey Vargas in February. Hernández has won his last six fights via knockout following his first round stoppage loss to Roger Gutierrez in 2019.
