On October 6, 2007, Sergio ‘Maravilla’ Martínez (53-3-2, 30 KO) stepped into a ring for the last time in Madrid. The capital of Spain was his residence since 2002, but in 2007 he began his American dream. The legend that we know today was about to be forged. He still had his great nights of glory. Now, at 46, the Argentine wants to recover those feelings. Therefore, in 2020 he decided to return to the ring. He did it, twice, in Torrelavega. His goal is to get to play a World Cup again. The dream is there, but it must make its way. After those two lawsuits, the restrictions due to the pandemic and his starring role in the play ‘Bengal’ prevented him from returning earlier.

Its premiere in 2021 will be special. He returns to Madrid and does so where he resides, in Valdemoro. In the Plaza de Toros of the town he will get into the ring on the 25th of this month. Opposite, England’s Brian Rose (32-6-1, 8 KO), who comes with the intention of stealing the limelight. It will be ten demanding rounds for the Argentine. The clock works against him and he needs the rivals to be of greater importance. Rose is and the public knows it. There are still two weeks to go, but few entries remain. We are looking forward to seeing him again in Madrid.

Before that fight, a long-awaited match will be played. Ángel Moreno (21-4-2, 6 KO) and Juan Hinostroza (10-9-1, 5 KO) will play the European fly, vacant. The Madrilenian has been waiting since the summer of 2020 for this fight. Between changes of rivals, venues and restrictions, the wait has been lengthened in excess. For the Hispanic-Peruvian, resident in Madrid, too.

The event is completed with three more professional matches. Adrián Torres (2-1, 1 KO) lives a ‘redebut’, as he defines himself. He made his debut in rental boxing in November 2017 and was injured in the same fight. He was unemployed for almost a year. He considered quitting, but meeting Ángel Moreno has given the Fuenlabreño the motivation to return. Christian Ledesma will play his second professional fight and Iker Fernández, Jonfer’s younger brother, will make his debut on the rented field. In addition, youtuber Christian Vidal ‘Torete’ will debut as an amateur.
