Trained by Mexican boxing legend Erik Morales and ranked #5 by the WBO, Angel Fierro plans on showcasing his skills when he steps inside of the squared circle for his homecoming fight on Friday night. In a recent statement, Fierro spoke about winning, fulfilling a promise, and pursuing his dream.

“We’re focused on winning this fight on Friday, and then we’re looking for a World title. I’ve been chasing this dream since I was a kid, and it’s something I promised my parents and my daughter.”

Angel Fierro made his pro boxing debut back in October 2015 when he scored a 2nd round TKO victory over Salvador Nunez Guillen. Five years later, Fierro would relinquish his undefeated status when he lost to Alex Martin. He would bounce back in his next bout by knocking out Alexis Reyes in the 9th round.

Fierro grabbed headlines back in March 2021 when he scored an upset against a former world champion. Thirty-nine seconds into the opening round, former WBA super-featherweight champion Alberto Machado landed a counter left hand shot that knocked Fierro off-balance.

With 1:18 left to go in the first round, Machado landed a counter right hand that sent Fierro down to the canvas. Fierro was able to get up, but with 15 seconds remaining in round 2, he was hit with another counter right hand that sent him back down to the canvas.

Fierro was able to recuperate and settle down as he concentrated on landing hard shots to Machado’s body. In the 6th round, Fierro knocked Machado out when he landed a left to the body, followed by a devastating left to the head.

Two years since his triumphant victory, Angel Fierro is now ready to take his career to the next level. On Friday night, the hard-hitting lightweight contender will once again defend his WBO NABO title.

While Fierro plans on using this fight to showcase his skills, his opponent Brayan Zamarripa wants to do the exact same thing.

Zamarripa knows his career will trend in an upward direction if he’s able to score a big upset in Tijuana on Friday night.

“I’m sure he’s going to bring some good stuff to the table, but I am ready for it. I’ve been training all my life for a moment like this,” said Zamarripa. “I can’t believe I’m here, so I am just getting in that ring on Friday night and give my best and put on a great show for Tijuana and the world.”

Angel Fierro is excited about his upcoming fight on Friday night. He has a set of goals that he wants to accomplish, but first, he has to focus on defeating a very ambitious opponent.

“I’m proud that we’re fighting on Mexican Independence, I’m ready for it, and we’ll put on a great show for Tijuana,” Fierro stated. “I don’t know how I will beat him, but I know I’m going to come out victorious. After this, we’re going after the best; we want to be ranked in the top ten, and that’s what we’re looking for.”
