WORLD champions Ray Beltran and Isaac Dogboe both made weight Friday for their respective title defences at the Gila River Arena, Glendale, Arizona tonight.
Beltran boxes Jose Pedraza for the WBO lightweight crown. WBO super-bantamweight boss Isaac Dogboe boxes Hidenori Otake. Both are defending their titles for the first time.
“I feel like my heart is in half. I feel like a Phoenix fighter, but I’m also a Mexican fighter from my hometown. I can’t believe what I’ve come from. I come from nothing. I come from a place where nobody is supposed to make it. I think it’s important that the people where I came from know about it, so they get the message — whatever you want to do in life, if you work hard, you can make a change,” Beltran said.
