This Friday is the 2nd installment of the successful 2018 Boxeo Telemundo Ford Spring Season
“ I don’t like to be a talkative fighter, I always like to say, I’m going to win, because if you start promising to win by KO you make a commitment with the fans that you have to win by KO and if you don’t then you lose credibility. That’s why I always say I’m going to win which ever way” said Iribe.
Carmon vs Iribe will be televised LIVE on the Telemundo Network at 11:35 PM. Check your local listings Tickets are on sale at www.ticketmaster.com.mx I www.53259000.com.mx
