Subsequent week’s Showtime tripleheader has acquired some late-notice tweaks. WBA interim light-weight champion Rolando Romero, slated to open the July seventeenth present towards Austin Dulay, claimed yesterday that Dulay had pulled out of the struggle as a result of a “panic assault.” Dulay took to Instagram to fire back, revealing that he’d suffered a knee damage and was keen to offer Romero $10,000 of his struggle purse to reschedule.
Now, Dan Rafael reports that Sweden’s Anthony Yigit will transfer from his untelevised Prelim slot into the Romero struggle.
Romero (13-0, 11 KO) can be making the primary protection of his title, which he claimed in controversial fashion against Jackson Marinez last year. He appeared a bit higher towards late substitute Avery Sparrow in January, stopping him in six on the Fulton-Leo undercard.
Yigit (24-1-1, 8 KO) is probably greatest identified for his look within the WBSS tremendous light-weight match, which noticed him fall to Ivan Baranchyk within the quarterfinals due to some grotesque swelling. He’s since received three get-well fights, and Saturday will mark his first look in over two years.
The present, headlined by Jermell Charlo vs. Brian Castano for the undisputed tremendous light-weight title, may even see rising Uruguayan puncher Amilcar Vidal face Immanuwel Aleem.
