The WBC light flyweight championship will be on the line this Saturday night in Toluca, Mexico as the champion Adrian Hernandez defends his belt against No. 10-ranked contender Yader Cardoza.
Hernandez (26-2-1, 16 KO) has shown very good power for a fighter in the lower weight classes and at 27 years old has already become a two-time world champion at 108 pounds. He will be fighting in front of his home crowd as he hopes to successfully defend his championship for the second time.
Cardoza (15-4, 5 KO) enters the bout on a seven-fight winning streak but has never fought outside of his native Nicaragua. He will be taking a big step up in class as he hopes to secure his first world championship title as a professional.
