Gervonta Davis isn’t the only elite Super-Featherweight that’s putting the gloves on this week.
Puerto Rican sensation Alberto ‘El Explosivo’ Machado (21-0-0, 17KO) has turned himself into an all-around weapon, who continues to show vast improvement in every outing, who is as good a technical fighter that we have in the division. He will fight WBA top-10 ranked fighter Andrew ‘El Chango’ Cancio (19-4-2, 14KO).
Machado has the minor secondary WBA ‘Regular’ title, but he has a claim against Davis for being the legitimate WBA Champ due to Davis getting an opportunity to win his belt back after he was stripped for missing the weight a couple fights back, and the way that it’s supposed to be set up, Machado should have been next in line to be elevated as thee WBA Champion given his standing, but there was some politicking going on.
Nonetheless, he remains a force to be reckoned with, and is carefully putting the pieces together needed to secure a big fight in the near future. Look for this one as the co-headliner on DAZN Saturday night.
