Classic Fight: Alex Saucedo and Lenny Zappavigna slug it out in 2018 Fight of the Year candidate

New, 1 comment

As Alex Saucedo prepares to return tonight, check out his great 2018 war with Lenny Zappavigna.

Alex Saucedo is set to return to the ring tonight in the ESPN main event (8 pm ET), and if you’re wondering if there’s a good reason to tune in, there is: Saucedo is a warrior, and you can generally count on him for an entertaining viewing experience.

Look no further than the fight up top from 2018, his bloody war with Lenny Zappavigna, the Australian battler who gave up some size and even some skill, but himself is a pure fighter.

There’s blood and action and a lot of fury and a lot of good times for fans of a good fight.

Saucedo (29-1, 19 KO) would go on to challenge for a world title about five months after this fight, losing to Maurice Hooker in Oklahoma City, at the same venue where he beat Zappavigna. Tonight, he’ll face Sonny Fredrickson (21-2, 14 KO) in the ESPN featured bout from Las Vegas, and we’ll be here with live coverage, so join us and let’s all hope for another toe-to-toe battle!
