IBF light flyweight champion Adrian Curiel will face beltholder Sivenathi Nontshinga.

Friday on DAZN at 5pm.
Location: Auditorium Guelaguetza in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Not too many fight fans knew who Adrian Curiel was before November 4, 2023.

It was on that date that the Mexican fighter made the transition from contender to world champion when he scored a brutal second-round knockout over then-IBF light flyweight titleholder Sivenathi Nontshinga.

Quotes:

Adrian Curiel: “It’s great to defend my belt on home soil. It was not a lucky shot or KO…I’ve been watching interviews that he’s been giving, and he says that I’m not a big puncher and I’m an easy fighter, but he’ll see on Friday that as we say here, people need to back up what they say. So, we’ll see on Friday if that’s true.”

Sivenathi Nontshinga: “I’ve trained so hard. It’s not the first time I’ve prepared for a world title fight. I’ve been a champion before, and I promise everybody that once again I will prevail. I believe falling down is part of life, but getting back up is living, so once again, I will become a champion.”
