Angel Ayala May Fight for a WBC World Title Soon!
The flyweight division is stacked with good potential fights and fighters. While the division is waiting for someone to emerge as the top dog, WBC number one contender Angel “Camaleon” Ayala (15-0, 7KO) is on the verge of a title shot.
The 22-year-old Mexican is unknown to the boxing public because all his fights have been in Mexico. Camaleon has picked up a few noteworthy wins in some good step-up bouts.
In 2021, he handed prospect Jeovani Gonzalez the first defeat on his record by winning the vacant WBC FECARBOX title. Furthermore, he showed good boxing skills in the fight by pitching a shutout on all three judges’ scorecards (100-90).
In August 2021, Ayala’s two-round destruction in a step-up fight against two-time title challenger Juan Alejo Zuniga was impressive. He would then get the opportunity to fight in a WBC title eliminator against former WBC champion Cristofer Rosales on April 9. Ayala pulled out all the tools in the toolbox and scored the biggest win of his short career against Rosales. Moreover, he became the number one contender to WBC champion Julio Cesar Martinez.
IS A TITLE SHOT POSSIBLY ON THE HORIZON?
IBF champion Sunny Edwards has been trying to get a unification with Martinez. The two were scheduled to face each other in October until the fight got shelved when Martinez pulled out.
Martinez is scheduled to fight an unknown fighter in Samuel Carmona on December 3. If the WBC champion is victorious and fail to renegotiate for unification with Edwards, then Ayala could find himself in a prime position to fight for the title.
