Golden Boy Promotions returns to the airwaves of Globosat in Brazil on Saturday, November 15 with an exciting card featuring several clashes between Brazil and Argentina, as well the latest bout of Olympic Bronze medalist Yamaguchi Falcao.
Making a special appearance will be former WBO and WBA Super Featherweight Champion, and two-time WBO Lightweight Champion, Acelino “Popo” Freitas. The future hall of famer looks forward to supporting his fellow countrymen as they enter the ring on November 15.
In an eight-round middleweight matchup, Vitoria, Brazil’s Falcao puts his unbeaten record on the line in a rematch against Argentina’s Martin Fidel Rios.
