Rios-Antillion Bout Canceled

After suffering an injury during sparring, undefeated NABF lightweight champion and top-five contender BRANDON RIOS (24-0-1, 17 KOs), of Oxnard, Calif., will no longer defend his title against fellow top-five contender Urbano Antillion (27-1, 20 KOs), of Maywood, Calif., on May 8 in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The fight was part of the LATIN FURY 14 undercard featuring the return of ANTONIO MARGARITO, who is still scheduled to fight Roberto Garcia in a hotly anticipated 10-round super welterweight battle. Also still on the card is a fight between super featherweight champion Jorge Solis (38-2-2), of Guadalajara, Mexico, and top-10 contender MARIO SANTIAGO(21-2-1, 14 KOs), of Ponce, Puerto Rico, as well as the pay-per-view debut of flyweight sensation Alfonso López (3-0, 2 KOs), of Mexico City, Mexico, the son of legendary world champion and Mexican icon Ricardo López.
