ANDhe next Saturday at Chukchansi Park, in the Californian town of Fresno, the former European super lightweight champion, the barcelons Sandor martn, to be one of the two protagonists of the stellar combat of a gala that also has a world championship of the light flyweight, with the Mexican champion Elwin soto defending his crown.

And the most important fight of the event is disputed by the former world champion in four weight categories, the American Mikey Garcia, who has been champion in featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and super lightweight, a great star.

He tried to reach the fifth crown in 2019, but his compatriot Errol spence he refused to give up his world wlterweight belt, defeating him on points.

Now he returns to ten rounds to prepare an attempt to the world title, and facing the Spanish Sandor martn, to try to give the bell, which will bring him closer to a world championship, or to do at least a good job that keeps him in the showcase of the great North American fights.

A historic fight against a star like Mikey Garcia, although Sandor Martin will not be the first to face a four-time world champion in different weights.

On June 23, 2001, Javier Castillejo traveled to Las Vegas to defend his WBC superwlter world title against the phenomenal scar de la hoya.

The Los Angeles fighter had been super featherweight, lightweight, super lightweight and wlter world champion, and precisely against the Spaniard he obtained his fifth crown, winning by points.

By the way, it would not be the last, since three years later he would also be proclaimed world middleweight champion, champion in six divisions, no less.
