Two AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) Cycle I Round 1 light welterweight (64 kg) matches will take place in Mexico City, Mexico on Wednesday evening.

The keenly awaited main contest sees local icon Juan Pablo Romero (MEX) battle Chabane Fehim (FRA), who makes his APB debut in this fixture.

Romero won his opening match of the Ranking Phase with a superb victory over Carlos Aquino (ARG), but has struggled in recent bouts having lost twice to Abdelkader Chadi (ALG).

Despite being just 24-years-old, Fehim has competed all over the world in his boxing career, with many European tournaments victories confirming his talent.

His brief stint in the World Series of Boxing (WSB) will also help the French athlete to adjust to the longer round format of APB, but Romero will be a very difficult opponent to face, especially in Mexico City.

The high altitude of Mexico will play into Romero’s style, with the North American fighter boasting an unrelenting dedication to his fitness, training and conditioning.

Those endurance skills were perfectly displayed in WSB where he was named the Season II Individual Champion, and in APB he has also competed well despite a losing record.

Both men will be stepping into unknown territory however, as this bout is scheduled for eight rounds, a distance neither man has boxed before.

Fehim is a precise athlete who has an excellent capability to impose his will onto fights, while Romero’s unorthodox hooks and uppercuts contain plenty of power.

The winner of the match will next face either Vychelav Kyslytsyn (UKR) or Yoelvis Hernandez (VEN) in Cycle I Round 2.

Kyslytsyn is still searching for his first in-ring APB victory, while Hernandez makes his first appearance in this competition.

Match schedule:

  • 20:50: Yoelvis HERNANDEZ (VEN) vs Vyachelav KYSLYTSYN (UKR)
  • 21:30: Juan Pablo ROMERO (MEX) vs Chabane FEHIM (FRA)
