Pedro Campa to face Miguel Angel Huerta on Nov. 6
Junior welterweight Pedro Campa will make his United States debut on Nov. 6, when he fights veteran Miguel Angel Huerta, Golden Boy Promotions announced Thursday morning.
The 10-round bout will take place at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, Calif. The bout will top a Golden Boy card and will be televised live on Estrella TV, beginning at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT.
RingTVLive.com will air preliminary action, beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET/ 5:30 p.m. PT.
Campa (18-0, 14 knockouts), who hails from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, barely stayed unbeaten in his last bout on May 23, winning a close, six-round decision over Noe Nunez. The win snapped a streak of six consecutive knockout wins.
Campa has wins over veteran fighters Cristian Favela, Jorge Pimentel and Joel Juarez.
Huerta (28-13-1, 18 KOs) will be the best fighter on paper Campa will face thus far. The 37-year-old has fought a who’s who of lightweight and junior welterweight contenders during his 16-year career.
After an almost five-year hiatus, Huerta returned to the ring in Sept. of 2013, losing an eight-round decision to Mauricio Herrera. He has also suffered losses to Antonio Orozco and Haskell Rhodes.
