Golden Boy Promotions makes its Brazilian debut on Globosat on Saturday, January 25, with a hard-hitting card at the Arena Santos in Santos, Sao Paulo, Brazil featuring the pro debut of 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist Yamaguchi Falcao and a main event pitting hometown hero Adeilson Dos Santos against Carlos Gaston Suarez.
In Saturday’s 10-round main event, which will be contested for the WBC World Youth Featherweight Title, Sao Paulo’s own Adeilson Dos Santos (12-0, 9 KO’s) will defend the title he won last September with a second-round technical knockout of 14-0 Marcos Gabriel Martinez in Argentina against another tough Argentinean in Buenos Aires’ Carlos Gaston Suarez (6-2, 1 KO). A pro since 2012, the 21-year-old Dos Santos is already drawing positive comparisons to Brazilian standouts of the past, and with a win over Suarez, he will keep the momentum going to kick off 2014.
Hailing from Vitoria, 26-year-old Yamaguchi Falcao will be making one of the most eagerly anticipated debuts seen in Brazil in years when he meets Argentina’s Martin Fidel “El Terrible” Rios (9-0-2, 3 KO’s) in an eight-round middleweight bout. A Silver medalist at the 2011 Pan American Games and a Bronze medal winner at the 2012 London Olympics, this national hero is eager to begin his pro journey this weekend against a hungry and undefeated opponent in La Pampa’s Rios.
“GALA DE BOXEO EN SANTOS” is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arano Box Promotions and sponsored by IBG. The local Globosat broadcast begins at 10:30p.m. The FOX Deportes broadcast begins at 10:00 p.m. ET.
