These two met back in December of 2015 also at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, with Cancio scoring an 8th round KO in an competitive and action packed fight. This fight was not a title fight.
Cancio shocked the boxing world by scoring a 4th round KO over Alberto Machado who was 21-0 at the time back in February of 2019 to snatch Machado’s title. They faced of once again 4 months later and Cancio proved he was the real deal by knocking out Machado against this time in the 3rd round to retain said title.
Alvarado is getting a a chance to avenge his loss against Cancio as well as snatch the WBA title from him. Since his loss to Cancio back in 2015 Alvarado has gone was 8 of his last 10 fights with a current 7 fight winning streak. This has allowed him to challenge for Cancio’s WBA title.
The first fight back in 2015 was war but now both fighters have grown more in the sport, more experience and wiser. We also have a title on the line which will make this war that much more action packed. Both fighters have more on the line this time around. Sparks will fly as well has hands, there is no doubt that bombs will land!
