Alberto Machado vs. Angel Fierro
New Main Event For Mar. 18 In Puerto Rico
Ring City USA, the new sports media startup that debuted its
Thursday night boxing series in November 2020, announced
today a change in the headliner of its March 18 event, their
second of three cards during its residency in Puerto Rico.
With the previously announced Hector Tanajara unable to
fight due to an illness, former super featherweight Alberto
Machado, (22-2, 18 KO), will now face hard-hitting Mexican
contender Angel ‘Tashiro’ Fierro, (17-1-1, 13 KOs), of San
Diego, Calif. in a ten-round main event clash, highlighting
the latest chapter of the iconic Puerto Rico vs. Mexico ring
rivalry. The event emanates from the famed Alberque Olimpico
(Olympic Center) in Salinas, P.R.
Fighting out of Tijuana, Mexico, Fierro returns to battle
following a ninth-round knockout of Alexis Reyes on October
16, 2020. Since turning pro in 2015, the 22-year-old has
flashed an aggressive fighting style which is highlighted by
six career first-round knockouts.
The next two Ring City USA events (March 18 and March 25)
are televised in the United States and Puerto Rico on NBC
Sports Network and the NBC Sports app on Thursday nights at
9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT with undercard action streaming live on
Twitch. The full card, which will be announced shortly, will
be available on Twitch outside of the United States.
