Chagnon, enhanced this week the strength of the current WBC light
flyweight champion, Adrian “Confesor” Hernandez, who is about to
make the second defense of the title against the Nicaraguan Yader Cardoza.
This card was officially announced

"Adrian Hernandez is one of the strongest WBC world champions,
and this Saturday will be a tough test against Cardoza", said
Hernandez, who is from Toluca, State of Mexico said: "In each of
my fights I get a large number of lessons and also learn from my
mistakes. We will climb into the ring to give a great show, to
enjoy the fans in the arena”. And added: “I will make the
maximum number of defenses in the light flyweight division
before thinking of moving to flyweight”.
