City’s Andres “Pug” Periban (9-7-1) in a lightweight

"Boxeo EstrellaTV" is a monthly fight night featuring the
best in Mexican and Latin American boxing, airing on the
last Friday night of every month through the end of 2021. It
can be viewed on the EstrellaTV network, carried by most
major cable carriers, and streamed everywhere on Samsung
TV+, The Roku Channel, Xumo, and fuboTV. The series is
produced by Producciones Deportivas and directed by Ricardo
“This card is a fight fan’s dream!” said Ricardo Maldonado
Jr., owner, Producciones Deportivas. “Marriaga is a beast
and brings a unique style to this fight. He just moved his
camp to Mexico City to prepare and spar against some key
Mexican fighters in anticipation of what Chicharo will
bring. Chicharo is a fighter you cannot sleep on – his speed
and power are something that keeps you on the edge of your
seat. It's a great Featherweight title fight!”
Diego Carmona is considered one of the best Mexican
prospects trained by his uncle Javier Carmona at Pancho
Rosales Gym, one of the traditional boxing gyms in Mexico
City. His opponent Carlos Zavala comes from the state of
Jalisco with international fighting experience and will be a
real test for the young hard-hitting prospect Carmona.
One of the night's stars is Diego “Azabache” Torres, a young
undefeated lightweight from Jalisco, who is trained by
Miguel Ortiz. Torres is looked at as a future star in
Mexican boxing. Facing Torres is Andrés Periban from Mexico
City, a journeyman fighter who will test the inexperienced "Azabache.”
The main title match features well-known world title
challenger Miguel Marriaga out of Arjona, Colombia vs. the
ambitious fighter Jorge "Chicharo” Garcia.
Marriaga is trained by Samuel Gomez (trainer to former world
champions J.C. Gonzalez and Carlos “Bolillo” Gonzalez), with
his camp located in the legendary Mexico City gym Jordan
Boxing Gym (Julio Cesar Chavez). He will face "Chicharo"
from Saltillo, Coahuila, a new and ambitious fighter who
will be looking to make a statement in this title fight. His
advantages are youth and a hunger for success. Christian
Amador trains Chicharo.
Fights are scheduled to occur and will air on EstrellaTV on
the last Friday of each month in 2021. The remaining fight
nights include May 28, June 25, July 30, August 27,
September 24, October 29, November 26, and December 17.
