Cuadras and Guevara fight will be part of the WBC Annual Convention in Tashkent
Mexicans Carlos Cuadras (41-5-1, 28KO) and Pedro Guevara (40-3-1, 22KO) will compete for the interim super flyweight title of the World Boxing Council on November 17 as part of the activities of the WBC Annual Convention, which will take place at the Humo Arena in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
For 35-year-old Cuadras this is the opportunity that he had been waiting for so long because if there is one thing he wants, it is to be crowned WBC champion again.
“Grateful to all those who made it possible for this dream to materialize”, Cuadras was clear in saying that fights between Mexicans are a guarantee of a great show, so he hopes that all the conventioneers and the public of Uzbekistan will be truly satisfied with his performance.
Convinced that he will return to Mexico with the interim title in his hands, 'Principe' Cuadras made it clear to Pedro Guevara that despite the friendship that exists between them and the mutual respect and admiration in the ring, it will give him “the medicine” necessary to win this commitment.
Trained by Abel Sanchez, former world champion Cuadras held the WBC super-flyweight title for over two years between May 2014 – September 2016.
For his part, 34-year-old Sinaloan, Guevara, commented that it has been five years for the opportunity for the green and gold title to be at his door again, so he will not let this moment in his career go.
Convinced that physical and mental preparation are the key to victory, Guevara assured that he respects Cuadras’ career and skills; however, he was assertive in saying that this is his time to return to the path of elite champions.
Known as 'Jibran Pedrin', Guevara has boxed in almost 300 rounds over his 44-fight career, which began in March 2008.
Guevara expressed that for both of them it is a great responsibility to go to Uzbekistan and represent Mexico and the WBC.
