Sebastian Papeschi Collides with Diego Carmona for IBF Regional title in Cordoba August 26

Sampson Lewkowicz and Carlos Andres Tello return to ProBox TV next Saturday following a successful event last month in Montevideo, Uruguay that saw Amilcar Vidal Jr. get back to winning ways against Domicio Rondon.

The South American promoters keep the show on the road in neighbouring Argentina as ProBox TV continues to provide subscribers with more international content. Lewkowicz and Tello head to Argentina’s second largest city of Cordoba to bring you three highly competitive televised fights from the 5-star Quorum Cordoba Hotel on August 26.

The evening’s main-event will see Sebastian Horacio Papeschi and Diego Carmona square-off for the vacant IBF Latino middleweight title over 10 rounds.

Papeschi (19-4, 7 KOs) comes off an emphatic 8th round knockout victory over Jairo Ariel Rayman for the South American light heavyweight title. The all-action fighter from Buenos Aires was previously stopped on a trip to Kazakhstan suffering a 5th round knockout loss to Meiirim Nursultanov last June.

Mexico’s Carmona (13-1, 11 KOs) is on an impressive six fight knockout streak, his most recent victims were Addir Sanchez in Panama and Alberto Mosquera in his native Mexico. The bout sees two southpaws collide with rankings places at stake at 160 pounds.

“Both fighters like to come forward, it is a real 50/50 fight that one.” Lewkowicz said of his upcoming main-event. “Papeschi does not have the biggest punch but will come forward all night. Carmona is like all Mexican’s, he will be coming to look for a fight.”

The chief-support provides a 10 round flyweight battle between Ramon Nicanor Quiroga and Efrain Rodriguez Gonzalez.

Quiroga (5-1, 2 KOs) represented Argentina at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games turning professional shortly after. The man from Mendoza picked up a WBA regional belt against the undefeated Afolabi Shittu with a wide points victory in Buenos Aires less than two months ago.

The dangerous Gonzalez (7-0, 7 KOs) fights outside his native Mexico for the first time in his career. His immaculate record most recently saw the undefeated Diego Montalvo Reyes fall to the 26 year old, Gonzalez dispatching of his opponent by the 2nd round this past March in Mexico City.

Opening the televised broadcast will see the undefeated Argentine Josue Francisco Arguero (7-0, 3 KOs) lock horns with the highly experienced Fabian Oscar Orosco (28-14-4, 10 KOs) in the super featherweight division scheduled for 8 rounds.
