Villanueva (10-0-1, 8 KOs), is no stranger to fighting against opponents in their own hometowns such as Lozano on "Boxeo Telemundo Ford", having done exactly that in the Season 2 opener on June 21 Versus Julian Rivera in Mexico City. As his record shows, the Puerto Rican-American boxer prevailed over Rivera in a unanimous decision to bolster his undefeated streak. Villanueva also obtained a win in his only other fight this year against Manuel Galaviz with a second round knockout in February.
Lozano (11-0, 8 KO) is unbeaten, untied and determined to showcase his potential in front of his hometown crowd. Lozano is a Tampa resident, while both of his parents are Mexican-American. Lozano has not fought yet in 2013, but when he does, he doesn't waste much time. Seven of his eight knockouts have come in the first three rounds.
