SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 7, 2016) – Undefeated super-Featherweight sensation, Mario Barrios (14-0, 8 KOs), makes his 2016 debut on March 15, at the Robinson Rancheria Resort & Casino in Nice, CA. Barrios, a San Antonio TX, native is scheduled to fight in a 10-round bout against an opponent TBA.
Barrios’ bout will be part of the televised portion of Premier Boxing Champions Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays PBC on FS1. Tune in at 9PM ET Eastern Time / 6PM PT Pacific Time.
After a momentous 2015 where he went (7-0, 5 KOs), Mario Barrios is looking to continue his March toward a world title. Standing 6’1, Barrios wants to fight for a championship before he out grows the super-Featherweight division.
“Right now the goal is to win a world title at 130 pounds,” said Mario Barrios. “I’m still young enough that making weight is not a problem at the moment. I believe with a few more fights, I’ll be ready to challenge any of the champions at super-Featherweight. First and foremost I must focus on March 15th and bring home a victory.”
This fight marks the third bout in a row where Barrios will be fighting in front of a nationally televised audience. Mario is grateful for the opportunity to be fighting on FOX Sports once again.
“I love fighting on Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays on FOX Sports,” Barrios continued. “I’m very thankful that FOX is brining me back. I’m always looking to impress those that are watching with an electrifying performance. If I get my opponent hurt at any time during the fight, you know I’m going for the knockout.”
