This Saturday, May 15, Luis ‘Pantera’ Nery and Brandon Figueroa face off at Dignity Healt Sports Park in Carson, California for the world super bantamweight titles in the World Boxing Association (WBA) and the World Boxing Council (WBC).
Nery, 26, worked with red-hot trainer Eddy Reynoso, the architect behind pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez, in the Alameda fight and was far from his explosive self as he focused more on boxing. The two split ways in the aftermath, although Nery refused to elaborate on the exact reason for going back to original trainer Ismael Ramirez for this fight.

One thing that’s clear is Nery has been put off by the assertions of Figueroa (21-0-1, 16 KOs) that he’s no longer the same finisher at this weight class.
“In the ring, I’m going for the finish. Everything is on the line. I just have to prove what I’m capable of inside the ring,” Nery said. “I don’t care about anything else but that. Brandon’s style really fits with what I want to do in the ring. I know that I can achieve everything that I want in this division and show all of my skills in this fight. This style will go better with mine than Aaron Alameda’s did in my last fight.”
If it’s styes that truly make fights, this matchup is nothing short of perfect on paper. Nery is a stalker who looks to send his opponents packing with one punch. The 24-year-old Figueroa, on the other hand, is a nonstop volume puncher who typically forfeits his advantages in height and reach in ways that typically translate into entertaining fights.

Consider Figueroa a very live underdog in this one. He’s bigger, throws a relentless storm of punches in volume and has some of the best cardio in the game. The native of Weslaco, Texas, seems to be built for fights like this in ways other aren’t.
rounds should this fight be contested at too quick of a pace?
For that reason alone, Figueroa remains one of the toughest outs at this weight class and provided he can smother Nery’s power a bit by staying glued to him at close range, this is a fight he can win.
