Harris gets first world shot against Julio Martinez

Share This

Julio Cesar Martinez will make the first defence of his WBC Flyweight title against Welshman Jay Harris on 29 February in Frisco, Texas, USA.
Swansea’s Harris, 29, took his record to 17-0 by beating Paddy Barnes for the IBF Inter-Continental Flyweight title in his last outing in October.
Harris, who has also won the European and Commonwealth belts, now gets his first tilt at a world crown.
Martinez (15-1) stopped Cristofer Rosales to claim his title in December.
The 24-year-old Mexican’s ninth-round win was the first time that Rosales had been stopped in his professional career.
The Martinez-Harris bout will take place on the Mikey Garcia versus Jessie Vargas undercard at The Star.
