Bernaldez faces veteran Kantun in Miami, USA

·1 min read

FILIPINO super featherweight prospect Mark Bernaldez takes on Mexican journeyman Juan Kantun in an eight rounder on July 9, 2021 at the Airport Hilton in Miami, Florida, USA.

Bernaldez, based in Miami, looks for his third straight victory since suffering a unanimous decision loss to Albert Bell a year ago. The 27-year-old former ALA Boy scored a third round stoppage over Julian Aristule and a sixth round technical knockout of Hector Suarez for back-to-back wins.

The 33-year-old Kantun is a very experienced fighter that has faced some of the best. He has fought the likes of Roman Gonzalez, David Sanchez, Rocky Fuentes, Omar Soto and Jesus Iribe.

Kantun, however, is currently on a slump, losing seven straight fights in the last eight years. His last win was a unanimous decision over former North American Boxing Federation flyweight title holder Faustino Cupul in 2013.

Bernaldez is 22-4 with 16 knockouts, while Kantun is 21-11-3 with 15 knockouts. (EKA)
