Two World Boxing Federation World titles will be on the line this coming Saturday, November 17, in Acapulco, Mexico, as Luis Ceja and Ganigan Lopez square off for the vacant Light Flyweight title, and Cesar Vasquez takes on Jesus Cruz Bibiano for the vacant crown at Super Featherweight.

On the same night in Los Angeles, US-based Ukrainian Anatoliy Dudchenko fights fellow L.A. resident Tyrell Hendrix for the vacant WBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Championship.

At the Unidad Deportiva in Acapulco, 22-year-old Luis Ceja, 22-2-3 (18), will be in his first World title fight in what is his fourth scheduled twelve round bout, while Southpaw Ganigan Lopez, 20-5 (14), is nine years older and more experienced with ten championship fights and several regional titles under his belt, but also entering his first crack at world honors.

In the co-feature Cesar “Saba” Vasquez, 25-1 (16), might have a tougher time than he expects against Jesus Cruz Bibiano, who brings a deceiving record of 9-9 (5), but has proven his class in competitive fights against very good opposition.

Vasquez and Bibiano will also both be in their first World Championship fights, but if you know their fighting-styles you know this will be a very competitive encounter. While Vasquez is undoubtedly the favorite, Bibiano is definitely a live underdog despite his modest resume.

Luiz Ceja vs. Ganigan Lopez for the WBF World Light Flyweight title and Cesar Vasques vs. Jesus Cruz Bibiano for the WBF World Super Featherweight title will be promoted by Baja Boxing, Promociones Del Pueblo and KO Entertainment, and will be aired Live throughout Mexico on Cadena 3.

In Los Angeles, Anatoliy Dudchenko and Tyrell Hendrix is set to go to war for the WBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight title at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. Dudchenko, 16-2 (11), turned pro in his native Ukraine in 2002, but has since fought exclusively in America.

A late bloomer in the game, Duchenko has progressed rather slowly, and will fight for his first title at 34 years of age against Hendrix who is five years younger and brings a 9-1-2 (3) ledger. Both guys haven’t lost for a long time, and since both are from L.A., and bring their own group of supporters, it should be an interesting night of boxing.

The Dudchenko vs. Hendrix World Boxing Federation Intercontinental Light Heavyweight title fight is presented by Ed Holmes and his All Star Boxing.
