"Incredible Style!" Oscar on the Undefeated Lightweight

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, discussing the upcoming fight between WBA Continental Americas lightweight (up to 61,2 kg) champion Mexican William Zepeda (29-0, 25 KOs) and British Maxi Hughes (26-6-2, 5 KOs), highlighted what makes William unique.

"The efficiency of Zepeda's punches is incredible. I've never seen anything like it until I went back to my library and watched a few fights of Salvador Sanchez.

That's who he reminds me of.

Zepeda throws a lot of punches and just wears you out. It's an amazing style!

Maxi Hughes is not a guy to be taken lightly. Maxi Hughes is a world champion. Maxi Hughes has been there with the best. Again, you can call this a test, you can call this the hardest fight of Zepeda's life.

You can call it whatever you want," said De La Hoya.

Zepeda and Hughes will fight on the night of March 17 in Las Vegas, USA. The winner will become the contender for the IBF title, which Vasiliy Lomachenko and George Kambosos will compete for in May.
