Jose Zepeda is ready to rumble…
The 31-year-old Mexican American boxer is set to fight Ivan Baranchyk in a 10-round junior welterweight matchup on Thursday, July 9 in Las Vegas, according to ESPN.
Zepeda (31-2, 25 KOs) is a well-schooled southpaw with solid boxing skills. In February 2019, Zepeda lost a disputed majority decision versus WBC titleholder Jose Ramirez in Fresno, California. In his most recent bout, in September, he won a unanimous decision against Jose Pedraza.
Baranchyk, 27, (20-1, 13 KOs), the former IBF junior welterweight titleholder, is coming off a fourth-round stoppage of Gabriel Bracero in October. His lone loss came against Josh Taylor in May 2019 in the semifinals of the World Boxing Super Series.
