Edwin Valero and Jorge Linares To Defend Titles Saturday Night on Pay-Per-View

Cancun, Mexico (December 10)—Wondering what to get the boxing fan for the Holidays? Teiken Promotions has the perfect gift idea as it presents Cancun Night of Champions this Saturday evening LIVE on Pay-per-view for the very affordable suggested retail price of $29.95. Two of boxing’s electric, young champions, Edwin Valero and Jorge Linares will be defending their titles at the Plaza de Toros in beautiful Cancun, Mexico LIVE on DirecTV, Dish Network, and In Demand Pay-Per-View with coverage beginning at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT..

In the main event, undefeated WBA Super Featherweight Champion Edwin “Dinamita” Valero (22-0, 22 KO’s) defends his belt as he goes up against Zaid “El Exterminador” Zavaleta (17-2-2, 9 KO’s). The Venezuelan southpaw Valero, just 25 years old, packs a monstrous punch and has been showcased by Teiken throughout South America and Japan. Zavaleta, a native of Mexico, has scored two consecutive knockout wins over Gabriel Rojas and Cristian Favela.

The night’s co-feature bout will be an explosive battle between 22 year old undefeated WBC Featherweight Champion Jorge “Golden Boy” Linares (24-0, 15 KO’s) defending his title against Mexican WBC number one contender Gamaliel “El Platano” Diaz (22-6-2, 9 KO’s).

Lately, boxing cards have been plagued by slow-moving, boring, uninteresting undercards. This will not be the case on Cancun Night of Champions which will deliver an exciting pair of opening fights on Pay-Per-View. The first is highlighted by Puerto Rican rising star Wilfredo Vasquez Jr. (9-0, 8 KO’s). The undefeated featherweight is the talented son of super bantamweight boxing legend Wilfredo Vasquez (56-9-2, 41 KO’s).

Also featured will be a WBC Featherweight Eliminator between Mexican Rudy Lopez (20-4-1, 14 KO’s) and hard hitting Japanese veteran Naoki Matsuda (28-7-3, 11 KO’s). This is a rematch of what was a sensational fight on March 31, 2007 in Cancun where Matsuda knocked out Lopez in the fifth round.

Any fight fan would appreciate this action packed night of boxing as a holiday present as they will have the opportunity to sit back, relax, have a glass of egg nog and watch the last Pay-Per-View of 2007. The suggested retail price of $29.95 is one of the best buys you can find in the fight game.
