San Mateo Atenco’s own William Zepeda, the knockout artist with an unblemished record, orchestrated a relentless barrage of punches, effectively dismantling his adversary, the resilient former IBO World Champion Maxi Hughes from Yorkshire, UK. Zepeda’s tactical onslaught, focusing on punishing body shots, led to Hughes conceding defeat at the end of the fourth round, granting Zepeda a coveted spot at the forefront for a world title shot.

Zepeda, unfazed and methodical, commented post-fight, “Just another day’s grind. Thirty fights, thirty victories, all thanks to my squad. From the get-go, I had him in my sights; the plan was simple—target the body, then go for the head. What drives me isn’t confidence but a profound sense of duty to maintain this caliber of performance. The adversaries knocking on my door are no walk in the park; they’re seasoned, they’re tough. But I’m gunning for the title. I’m prepped and ready for anyone—Shakur, Gervonta, bring them on. The world championship is mine for the taking.”

In the evening’s second highlight, Floyd Schofield, known in the ring as “Kid Austin,” retained his WBA International Lightweight Title, overcoming an unfortunate headbutt and a series of unsporting maneuvers by Esteuri Suero, including holding and illegal blows, leading to Suero’s disqualification in the fifth round.
