ProBox presents Friday night action

Tonight (Friday) at the Whitesands Events Center in Plant City, Florida, Israel Rodriguez Picazo locks horns with Ramon Cardenas in a ten-round duel at super bantamweight, live on ProBox TV.
Mexico’s Picazo (30-5, 20 KOs) defeated Wilner Soto with a fifth-round stoppage last December in Orlando. The 25 year-old veteran is undefeated inhis last fifteen bouts, with his last loss coming all the way back in 2019, a twelve-round losss to Eduardo Baez for the Mexican championship. San Antonio’s Cardenas (23-1, 12 KOs) scored a second-round knockout victory over the 15-0 Rafael Pedroza in his hometown this past September. The 28-year old is undefeated in his last eleven, with his only career defeat coming at the hand of Danny Flores by majority-decision nearly eight years ago n Monterrey, Mexico.

In the co-feature, somebody’s O has got to go when Emiliano Moreno clashes with Axl Melendez over eight rounds in the welterweight division. Moreno (8-0, 5 KOs) most recently handed Daniel Lim his first loss, via early TKO in November of last year. Melendez (7-0, 4 KOs) is a come-forward fighter who’s most recent major achievement was interrupting the undefeated streak of Demontaze Duncan this past March.
