Mexican contender Victor Betancourt will get a second chance to win a World Boxing Federation (WBF) title when he takes on Saul “Temible” Banos for the vacant WBF Mexican Super Featherweight title on Saturday September 29 in Sonora.

Betancourt, 24-2 (12), lost a fight for the WBF Intercontinental Featherweight crown to compatriot Sergio Lopez in August of 2014, but has since rebounded very well and won eight of his last nine outings, six of them inside the distance.

His only set-back in this period was a technical decision defeat to Italy´s undefeated former European titlist and IBO World Champion Emiliano Marsili (35-0-1) this past February in Rome. But Betancourt also proved in that fight that he can compete at a high level.

For Banos, 14-9-2 (7), the younger man by one year at 26, it will also be his second crack at a WBF championship. In 2015 he came up short in a challenge for the International Super Bantamweight title, losing to Rafael Reyes.

Certainly the underdog in this fight, Banos has little to lose and can firmly resurrect his career should he be able to emerge victorious. Betancourt on the other hand must win if he is to have any realistic hopes of one day challenging for world honours.
