Pablo Cesar Cano will defend his belt next March 28th in a show promoted by GBP. More to come.
Pablo Cesar Cano had retained his WBC International 140 Lbs Silver title last November 16th in San Miguel de Allende (México) against former WBC Silver champion Robert Ortiz. Golden Boy Promotions staged the show.
In a typical Mexican-style , WBC #6 Pablo Cesar “El Demoledor” Cano (34-7-1, 23 KOs) scored a spectacular second round KO over Roberto “Massa” Ortiz (35-5-2, 26 KOs) to retain his WBC International Superlight weight Silver crown on Saturday night at the Plaza De Toros San Miguel De Allende in Guanajuato, Mexico. Both fighters savagely tore into each other from the opening bell. Ortiz dropped Cano in round one and had him badly hurt, but Cano ended the fight with a brutal barrage that put Ortiz on the deck prompting a referee’s stoppage in the following round. Ortiz was game, but flurry of shots was capped by a left hook which sent him to the canvas for a second time on the night. For referee Juan Jose Moreno it was enough and the fight was immediately waved off. Cano picks up his third straight win—his longest win streak since 2012—as he improves to 33-7-1 (23KOs).
