Unbeaten super lightweight contender,Mario Barrios (14-0, 8 KO), has an opponent named for his upcoming bout scheduled for this Saturday, April 16 from Barclays Center in Brooklyn,New York.
Barrios will face Edgar Gabejan (27-32-6, 9 KOs), his most experienced foe to date, a veteran with over 500 battle tested rounds. The non-televised 8-round bout will take place on the undercard of a Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on NBC tripleheader headlined by undefeated rising star Errol "The Truth" Spence Jr. taking on former world champion Chris Algieri.
Standing over six feet tall, the towering Barrios will look to carry the momentum from a fabulous 2015, where he went 7-0 with 5 knockouts. Fighting in New York for the first time in his professional career, Barrios wants to send a messages to the 130-pound division with a dominating performance.
"I’m eager to get back in the ring and start the year off with a bang," said Mario Barrios, the rising star who hails from San Antonio, TX. "I’ve been in the gym since my last fight in mid-December and I’m ready to make statement in this fight. I want let everyone in the super-featherweight division know I’m gunning for them, especially the all the champions. My 2016 march toward a world title starts this Saturday. I can’t wait to let my hands go and give the east coast fans a great night of action."
