Jacobo Barreto “Caco” is the local boxer who will have huge support. He has experience of this title and has a record of 10 wins (4 KO) 2 defeats, giving him almost double the experience of his rival.
Jonathan Santana “Nano” will be the outsider but he will also have a lot of fans to cheer him on since he is from Gran Canaria. He has a record of 6 victories (1 KO) 1 defeat and while he has less experience than its rival, not being the favourite means less pressure which is why his morale is high.
