Get ready for another championship brawl in Showtime's latest and last boxing extravaganza. WBC lightweight champ Julio Cesar Martinez (20-2, 15 KOs) is set to defend his title on December 16, marking the grand finale of Showtime's boxing legacy.
His challenger? The undefeated Venezuelan, Angelino Cordova (18-0-1, 12 KOs). For Martinez, this isn't just another fight; it's his seventh title defense since snagging the belt four years ago from Christopher Rosales. On the other hand, Cordova is stepping into the biggest fight of his career, his first shot at a world title.
As the curtain falls on Showtime's boxing chapter in 2024, remember December 16 is more than a fight night. It's the end of an era. And it's not just Martinez and Cordova lighting up the ring – keep an eye out for David Morell, who'll also be throwing down on this historic night.
